    After a couple whirlwind years playing their own blend of 'high octane gypsy carnival madness' all over Europe and the UK, establishing an ever growing reputation as one of Englands ‘must see’ live acts, Brighton band Buffo’s Wake decided to record a selection of the songs that eventually became their debut album Carniphobia.

    Released on October 31st 2014 (Halloween), the album perfectly summarises their schizophrenic energy, and over the course of its 11 songs flirts round the edges of punk rock, folk, swing jazz, Balkan brass bands, cabaret, skiffle, klezmer and many other different styles, whilst still retaining something wholly unique to their sound. The release of the album coincides with a mammoth 50 date UK and Ireland tour between October and December.

    Recorded in an array of bedrooms and studios (and everywhere inbetween), Buffo’s Wake decided not to use any synthesized electronic instruments on their songs, instead opting for entirely acoustic instruments, effects and atmospherics, created using singing saws, wine glasses, old rusty pipes, handmade percussion instruments and anything else they could get their grubby little paws on.
