“I don’t know my left from right.”
Take equal parts alt-country, a fusion of folk and punk, and a group of lads from Manchester and you’ve got the unconventionally, but perhaps very appropriately, named band It’s A Buffalo. The new disc, Don’t Be Scared, is fantastic. Each track is anchored by a great Replacements-type lead guitar riff. That was enough for me – I can’t see past the Westerberg. Londoners can, and should, head down to Brixton in order catch the band play the Windmill on April 11th. I’ve always liked the idea of Americana played by a bunch of Brits, I find some welcome humor in it.
