Set to Fade

Big Ugly Fish RecordingsThe hosting for BUF Recordings runs out in a matter of months, we will not be re-newing the service. All our good work from over the past 3+ years is now archived here in this blog. The shop is in the process of moving too. You’ll find the remainder of our stock on Bandcamp. There are limited quantities of The Stormy Petrel and Live in Melbourne Vinyl LP’s left, both in red vinyl, so get them while you can before you have to pay a small fortune for them on eBay. You can find them here: biguglyfishrecordings.bandcamp.com

We are keeping the BUF Facebook Page as a point of contact if anyone has any queries and don’t forget there are two excellent active Leatherface Facebook pages here and here.

Operations are winding down due to other music projects and commitments outside the music industry.

BUF would like to thank everyone who visited us, bought music and merchandise from us, watched the bands on our small independent label and, those who continue to listen to the great music we were so privileged to be associated with.

We recommend HDQ’s new album Lost in Translation: facebook.com/HDQofficial

The Sainte Catherines: facebook.com/thesaintecatherines

The Leatherface site will remain as an archive as it is and will be updated with archive material as we receive it, if you have anything to contribute to the archive, the gallery or can recommend a high quality video please contact us via Facebook here.

Paul and Graeme @ BUF Recordings.

Produit de Qualité Inférieure

It has been brought to our attention that there is a bootleg just been released and is allegedly being distributed by a well known company.

We can categorically confirm this bootleg release is nothing to do with either Leatherface or Big Ugly Fish Recordings. It is unlikely that any of the band will receive any payment from the sale of such releases.

We ask all true fans of the band’s music to avoid such inferior products. The official releases can only be bought from reputable traders or direct from Big Ugly Fish Recordings’ website.

BUF CD Sales Hit By Recession

Roll up, roll up! The Stormy Petrel CD has now been reduced to £6.99 as it’s now a bit long in the tooth and all copies are now seeking a place in your or your friends punk rock music collection. All other CD’s including Leatherface’s Live in Melbourne, The Sainte Catherines’ Fire Works and NRFB CD’s have also been reduced in this period of austerity, so stock up while you can. Available here right now.

The Sainte Catherines’ T-Shirts Found In Abandoned Basement

The Sainte Catherines T-ShirtHeld captive since a brief tour of Europe when young and later abandoned by really naughty bad ass people, the surviving and ever so slightly dishevelled Fire Works t-shirts (2 x Ladies Fit Small and Medium, 5 x Medium and 9 x X Large) are in the caring hands of the Big Ugly Fish and are currently looking for permanent, caring homes to go to at a small fee of £8 each. Available here right now

Regards.
