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), ​Callum Charman​(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 ​Country Teasers​, ​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’ ​will​​be available on limited edition 7” vinyl on the 7th of February via ​T-Bar Recordings​.
