Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard - 30,000 Megabucks

Welsh outfit Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have today unveiled their electric new single 30,000 Megabucks. Written whilst on tour with Our Girl in 2018, the track epitomises everything there is about sticking it to the man delivered through their unique swanky rock n roll sound. Frontman Tom Rees 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!” Listen for yourselves below.
