Long Running UK Punk Band SNUFF Returns with New Album on April 22
Long-running UK punks Snuff are releasing a new album titled ‘Crepuscolo Dorato Della Bruschetta Borsetta Calzetta Cacchetta Trombetta Lambretta Giallo Ossido, Ooooooh Così Magnifico!’ ( or ‘Crepuscolo Dorato’ for short) on April 22 via SBÄM Records / 10 Past 12 Records.
Snuff – a folk band for the ages. A punk band for the millennium. Making music for music’s sake. Completely independent and self-sustaining. The punk/mod men of Harrow in a direct timeline from the sharply dressed hoochie coochie blues and soul gentlemen of Chicago and Detroit. Duncan Redmonds is a storyteller and observer following on from the British folk tradition of Richard Thompson and Martin Carthy set to a punk motown beat that is revered in certain circles but misunderstood in polite society. Raucous songs of modern folk tales.
Each story unfolds independently as you listen to their punk soul blues on the new album such as in Green Glass Chippings and the cover of Curtis Mayfield’s Hard Times. Over two years in the making, the band started work on new material taking new song ideas back to the format of a three-piece line up – and then bringing the organ and trombone into the mix much later once the songs were up and running. The lockdowns of 2020 held up some rehearsals, but the ideas would keep coming and the songs kept developing. Sometimes even down at the park where Snuff entertained the local dog walkers.
The crowd’s reaction to the new stuff was superb! Finally un-caged in 2021 and fully able to rehearse at their local venue The Trinity in Harrow whilst it was still closed for gigs, Snuff was back on track again. Fast, angry and loud, ready to visit Perry Vale Studios with Pat Collier (The Vibrators) who manned the record buttons.
Huzzah, huzzah and thrice huzzah!! 10 brand new tracks have appeared. All played in that classic infectious Snuff style of aggressive, harmonised melodic Motown punk. Snuff are alive, well and in tip-top form!! And once again outdo themselves with the new album title: Crepuscolo Dorato Della Bruschetta Borsetta Calzetta Cacchetta Trombetta Lambretta Giallo Ossido, Ooooooh Così Magnifico! (short: Crepuscolo Dorato) will be released on April 22, 2022 via SBÄM Records (worldwide) and the band’s own 10 Past 12 Records (U.K.).
