• sergeant buzfuz Go to the Devil and Shake Yourself (CD, £7.95)

    label: Blang

    “Go To The Devil And Shake Yourself” is the fifth Sergeant Buzfuz album. It chronicles the first fourteen centuries of the papacy. It started with songwriter Joe Murphy intending to tell a potted history of the papacy in a 5 minute song. He stopped when the song reached 7 minutes and the end of the first millennium. Even then he didn’t realise how many songs the story would stretch to. The next Buzfuz album will be completely pope-free. The one after that will return to the papal story. Buzfuz have played live 6Music sessions for Tom Robinson and Marc Riley. Joe Murphy is performing “Go To The Devil And Shake Yourself” as a one-man show for sixteen nights at the Edinburgh Festival Free Fringe in August 2012. Online press by Charm Factory PR.
