Willie Barr - mandolin Ian Button (Death In Vegas, Wreckless Eric, Go-Kart Mozart, Darren Hayman) - drums Joss Cope (Julian Cope, Weather Prophets) - bass Stu Crane - slide guitar Polly MacLean - b vox Eilish McCracken (Rose McDowell) - violin/whistle/flute/piano Joe Murphy - voice/guitar Info - www.sergeantbuzfuz.com Sergeant Buzfuz are a South London septet led by songwriter Joe Murphy who also plays solo and co-runs the Blang record label. Joe's songs are a mixture of the pop, post-punk and folk he grew up listening to in Sheffield and the Irish story-telling tradition of his ancestors. 2015 album "Balloons For Thin Linda" has been critically acclaimed and there will be a feature on the band in the July/August issue of R2 magazine. Previous album “Go To The Devil And Shake Yourself” (2012) was championed by Gideon Coe, who played tracks seven times on BBC 6 and novelist Ian Rankin, who listed it in his top 20 albums of the year. Joe and Polly performed “Go To The Devil And Shake Yourself” as an Edinburgh Free Fringe show in 2012. Sergeant Buzfuz have played live BBC 6 sessions for Marc Riley and Tom Robinson (twice). Joe has toured solo in Ireland, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and the USA. For ten years (2002-2012) Joe ran the monthly Blang nights at London’s 12 Bar Club which gave birth to the Blang label in 2005. Joe contributes a song to "Shirley Collins Inspired", a triple vinyl album of covers of songs sung by the Sussex folk icon due 2015 on Fire's subsidiary Earth label, alongside contributions from Alasdair Roberts, Will Oldham, Graham Coxon, Lee Ranaldo and Tuung.

Joe has collaborated onstage with Jeffrey Lewis and Thomas Truax and on recordings with Chris T-T and The Band Of Holy Joy. He has co-written a song, “The Pint Of No Return”, with Tom Robinson (as yet un-recorded). Praise for "Balloons For Thin Linda" album (2015): "elegant and charming folky pop that's easy to love. Tailor-made for late night folk-festival beer-tent shenanigans" R2 (live review May 2015 "a clear influence of late 60s folk psychedelia, from the upbeat poppy sound to the off-kilter lyrics... a political commitment shines through" R2 (album review) "Imagine if Billy Bragg and The Beatles collaborated...creative, intelligent and quirky" FATEA "21st century folk...

a delight" AMERICANA UK "one of the freshest and most original records out now, reminds me of The Kinks" RADIO FREE AMERICANA Praise for previous work: “It's mental - in a good way!
