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:

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:

The Sainte Catherines:

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.

The Stormy Petrel T-Shirts

The Stormy Petrel T-Shirt BlackLadies and Gentlemen, The Stormy Petrel T-Shirt is now available again in black from the Big Ugly Fish Cornershop, so you can now impress your friends with this quality cotton and superbly printed t-shirt. This merchandise was previously only available on The Stormy Petrel World Tour.

The staff at Big Ugly Fish have gotten their mitts on a total of thirty in small, medium and large sizes. Each shirt was gently prized from the hands of the tour merchandiser with little or no tears. Sorry there’s no XL or XXL at the moment as they were surprisingly popular in Canada, U.S.A. and Germany for some reason, but rest assured these sizes should be available again in about a months time. Happy shopping!

No Idea Mail OrderThings just get better, not sure if you already know but we are so pleased to announce that has released the new Leatherface record ‘The Stormy Petrel’ in North America.

Big Ugly Fish is swimming at the news of this and we look forward to working with the No Idea Team.
