The 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.

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.
The limited edition (500 only) split single between Leatherface and Yesterday’s Ring in red vinyl is now for sale from
The Cornershop. This collectors item, which was previously only available on the Stormy Petrel Tour, it is currently priced at £15.00 and includes P&P (1st Class Signed For).
The Leatherface track ‘Deep, Deep Sleep’ was recorded on the recent ‘Stormy’ sessions though does not feature on the album. The single is already changing hands on Ebay for $50-$60 or more (none of which goes to either bands) so grab yourself a bargain now.
