Guaranteed to raise hell!
"Storming gypsy bangers! Twisting folk with a heavy smattering of pounding gypsy dance music – while very new to the scene, Buffo's Wake work the crowd like pros, jumping, dancing and bringing you headfirst in the world of eastern European madness – we love them. Sounds like the gate has swung shut behind you at the abandoned fairground" – Playgroup Festival
"You may recall a desolate band of misfits in Tim Burton's 'Nightmare Before Christmas' that popped up every now and then with musical interludes of damp and haunting melodies that were, in their own way, quite captivating. Well Buffo's Wake have a very similar allure; that is intriguing violins and erratic accordions, both utterly besmirched with wonderfully gloomy undertones and lingering vocals" - Stuart Mason, Geeks.co.uk
"Buffo's Wake delight in sudden gear shifts, baffling non-sequiturs and a healthy sense of the absurd, and are undoubtedly the perfect accompaniment to an evening of knees-up silliness, preferably having consumed an obscene quantity of cider" - electricharmonymusic.blogspot.com
