Welsh band Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have today shared their latest single “30,000 Megabucks” – the first new music from the hotly-tipped band since the The Non-Stop EP, their debut release on Missing Piece Records/Communion.
Tom Rees From Buzzard Buzzard explains:
“”30,000 Megabucks” was inspired by a seemingly ridiculous but very real request from an old publishing agency that I was with, who wanted £30,000 to release me from the deal. It all turned out fine in the end, but back then I was so furious that I decided to put pen to paper to ‘take down the man’ as it were. The ‘Mega’ element comes from the total amount of nuclear bombing power required to completely devastate all human life on planet Earth, which is 30,000 megatons. I had been watching a lot of Chernobyl documentaries and also a film called Threads, so a small part of me was quite excited when they asked for £30k because the narrative locked in quite well. For that reason it was sure to be a hit – take that, man! We used to play the riff in sound check just because it sounded like AC/DC and we even played it as one of the walk-on songs on Soccer AM when we were on there. When we play it live it goes on for like fifteen minutes!”
Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard also launched their new online TV show BEAUTIFUL DOMES last month – a combination of found footage from the Welsh Socialist Broadcasting company, along with a new voice over and live performances from the band. The first of three episodes, entitled ‘The Red Planet’ which sees the band stranded on Mars, is streaming now HERE.
