After various line up changes as a result of creative differences, poor mental health, questionable decisions and some unfortunate circumstances – Honkies have now managed to form a rock-solid lineup consisting of Jim Sutcliffe(Guitar / Lead Vox), CallumCharman(Bass/Vox) Robin ‘Maddog’ McCready(Lead Guitar), Cat Rin (Synth/ Vox) and Alex ‘The Hairdresser’ Herd (Drums).
Half-mocking the much-lauded ‘South London scene’‘Buzz Band’ is equal parts scathing and socially aware. Pursuing their characteristically ramshackled sound, the track’s group call and response vocals are direct and uncompromising. Recalling nuances of CountryTeasers, Captain Beefhart & His Magic Band and Fat White Family, spindly guitars chug and shred frantically around the beat.
Both ‘Slugs’ and ‘Buzz Band’ will appear on Honkies debut album, due for release this summer. In the meantime, ‘Buzz Band’ willbe available on limited edition 7” vinyl on the 7th of February via T-Bar Recordings.
