Sheffield punk-folk stalwarts ‘Sergeant BuzFuz’ are gearing up to release a highly anticipated seventh album ‘Fox Pop’ on July 3rd via their DIY label Blang Records
It’s been 5 years since the last Sergeant Buzfuz album, 2015’s ‘Balloons For Thin Linda’. Band leader Joe Murphy has lost both parents, got married, been a victim of a smear campaign (as a whistleblowing union rep), co-founded charity QQF (a theatre company for adults with special needs) and relocated to his native Sheffield. Joe has also continued to co-run Blang, the DIY label he started in 2005 and has worked part-time in special needs schools in London and Sheffield to fund the recording of “Fox Pop”.
First single to be taking from the album is ‘Theresa McKee’, a song about a pregnant factory worker, is a joyous mixture of acoustic guitar and bright vocals. With an addition of mandolin it shows off the band’s more folky roots with finesse.
