Anti-folk punksters SERGEANT BUZFUZ do battle with the swirling romany accordions of SANJURO in this fantastic double header at the Brixton Albert. It'll be a night of jumping up and down, mile-wide grins and dancefloor mayhem, with a full squad of Offline's hard drinking DJs on the decks till late.
"Rebellious punk-folk-pop...endearing and compelling"
"Sounds like the Pogues beating up My Life Story..."
"Single of the month by a mile." PLAYLOUDER
"Universally charming" NME
"Dazzling...Referencing 1960s punk, psychedelia, German-rock, Irish folk, glam-rock and drone, Sergeant Buzfuz achieve a harmonious, chiming mash-up, sounding like none of the above" Aesthetica
"Ceaselessly inventive...14 candidates for John Peel's Festive Fifty (RIP)" TIMEOUT
"Buzfuz are a bloody riot" Plan B
"Marvellous, totally weird stuff; I love it." Sandman mag
"Velvet Underground in space meets dramatic Turkish stomping folk" SoundsXP
"the funniest lyrics we've heard for a long time" Londonist
A lurching feast of Flamenco to Irish jigs mixed up with crowd-rousing waltzes, shanties and ballads.
"Folk rock gypsy French band with an accordion player and a fiddle who are quite clearly bonkers."
"Jumping up and down Romany madness... delightful!"
Original photos, New York street scenes, Brixton shots and protest footage and more.
PLUS A SPINNING PLATTER OF DJS!
We'll also have a full crew of hard-drinking Offline regulars throwing down a top selection of tunes including:
Expect an ale-fuelled, fun-packed feast of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band and rockabilly in a floor stomping package.
MS LOPEZ (The Actionettes)
A veritable platter splatter of 50s, 60s, Motown and more vital tunes from the Actionettes' very own Glamour Queen of Vintage Vinyl.
NIPSLA (Falling over studios)
With more pop than a fridge of rola cola you'll be hard pushed not to get out of your seat and shuffle like an idiot to her bright DJ bag of joy full of indie, electro and party tunes.
SIM KARD SUZI (telecommmmm systems)
Famed for her all night broadcasts on Drink FM, this queen of the dance floor communications serves up righteous slabs of hardcore ska, obscure punk rock and 1930s tea dance music.
BOBBY BAUHAUS (charcoal soul)
More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats.
