Big Ugly Fish Newsletter #10

Dear Visitor,

We hope everyone had a splendid festive period as much we did and that Santa brought you the Lego, die-cast Spitfire, Barbie or Broons and Oor Wullie annual you asked him for. So, without further ado we’d like to announce, due to popular demand that Australian Jack the dog makes his return to the new fangled BUF Merchandise outlet along with BUF t-shirts, mugs, badges, bags, why there is even a hand made iPad sleeve available.

Don’t forget to check Big Ugly Fish’s Soundcloud page over the next couple of months, if you’re eagle eyed you may even spot a free download or two.

Leeds All Dayer

Spring Into Summer Punk Hootenanny at The Well in Leeds is going to be extra special this year with Leatherface replacing the Angelic Upstarts after singer Mensi decided to retire for the forseeable future. Also confirmed are the wonderful Neck, Social Schism, China Shop Bull, Acid Drop, The Fuckwits, The Lost Cherrees, Jock Sparra and Overspill from bonny Scotland and last but not least The Septic Psychos. In the bar expect DJs Jamie Headcharge, Jon Firth , and Z-Carr to be spinning the tunes and keeping you all dancing until the wee hours.

Tickets (£12:00) available here:

There is a rumour going round that this little band of miscreants might be performing some selective live dates to an unsuspecting public on the European mainland in the near future, so be warned. Watch this space.
