Londoners Buster Shuffle are back with a brand-new studio album, announced for release 18th March 2022. The new 10 track album is called ‘Go Steady’.

After the devastating effects of the pandemic and other recent UK/Europe touring difficulties that have directly impacted UK artists, Buster Shuffle have decided to Crowd Fund the record, using fan power to help them spread the Shuffle gospel far and wide.

Jet says ‘its been such a tough few years with the pandemic and so we thought we’d ask our loyal fans that have grown with us over 10 years plus, to help us get the album out there.  It’s not something that we have ever done before but we have seen other bands successfully engage with their fans to release music and we think the time is now for us’.

Jet reached out to fellow punk music aficionados in the height of lockdown to release a hard-hitting AA side 7 inch single “unsung Heroes” for charity. Bands that jumped to Jet’s aide to feature on the songs, which raised key funds for the World Health organisation included members of Die Toten Hosen, Flogging Molly, Donots, Hepcat, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Rhoda Dakar, Toy Dolls, Talco and more. 

After this massively successful campaign and a great response from the fanbase, Jet and the boys decided to get back in the studio to put together a new batch of songs that form the upcoming 5th studio album that promises to feature their biggest songs to date.

Go Steady will feature 10 tracks of Ska Punk, Rockney tunes and will also feature the highly successful 7 inch single ‘Sucker Punch Blues’ which was released May 2021.

 “We wanted to add Sucker Punch Blues as its been such a hit with the fans. We all thought it had to go to on the new album because it’s such a banger and we know people will be happy about it” says Jet.

Go Steady is set for release 18th March 2022 on ‘Do Nothing Records’ Buster Shuffle’s own label.

Buster Shuffle burst onto the scene 10 years ago with the sole purpose of entertaining and bringing their raucous tunes to beer wielding audiences, seamlessly straddling the ska, punk and rock and roll genres. With song writing craftsmanship at the core, tunes about drunken arguments, crafty cats, anti-social night buses, dirty older women and messy divorces emerged in their ambitious debut album Our Night Out, grabbing the attention of the music press UNCUT magazine giving the boys 4/5 stars plus raving reviews from The Guardian and The Mirror.
Their second studio album saw the lads collaborate with Roddy Radiation (The Specials) and Micky Gallagher (The Blockheads, The Clash,) who featured on the sophomore sonic offering Do Nothing.
From there, Ska figureheads Madness have had them play at their House of Fun Weekender two consecutive years running, plus played regularly with Rockney duo Chas and Dave, who became firm friends and supporters of the band.
Q track of the day and Metro album of the week are just a couple of accolades they can boast and since becoming tastemakers on the scene, Fred Perry and Merc clothing have dressed the boys and invited them to play in-store performances across Europe.
Buster Shuffle are currently in the studio penning their fifth album, and with some big names lined up to work with the lads, it could well be shaping up to be their biggest album to date.
Over the past 10 years BS have become one of the UK’s most formidable Ska Punk bands to emerge. 95 European tour dates in 2019 saw them take their brain rattling, unashamedly entertaining show across the continent, leaving thousands of revellers wanting more of their piano bashing cockney tunes with Jet Baker and his rock and roll swagger at the helm.
Not resting on their laurels, every band worth their salt on the thriving Punk Rock Scene also took them on the road – Flogging Molly, Me First And The Gimmie Gimmies, The Mad Caddies, Less Than Jake, Donots and most recently at the start of 2020, The Interrupters on their huge UK tour – and these likely East London lads have certainly left their mark.
And it doesn’t stop with just the UK and Europe.  The boys recently played the prestigious Punk Rock Bowling festival in Las Vegas and subsequently joined The Mighty Mighty Bosstones on the American leg of their tour.
In 2020 the world went into Lockdown with Covid-19 but Buster Shuffle didn’t rest on their laurels. They called upon some of their friends to come together and release a charity 7 inch single called ‘Unsung Heroes’. This was no mean feat, with multiple musicians at home on lockdown in various cities all over the world contributing. With all profits raised going to The World Health Organization the single was a massive success. German punk rock legends Die Toten Hosen premiered the video on their socials and with the help of members of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Flogging Molly, Mad Caddies, Toy Dolls, Rhoda Dakar, Hepcat, Donuts and Talco the boys raised over £3000 for charity.
December 2020 sees the 10th anniversary of their debut album “our night out/ being released with some new unheard bonus tracks that didn't make the cut back in the day being added to the 12 track album. With vinyl pressed in 3 different colours the band hope to give their fans some enjoyment over a potentially difficult Christmas.
Shuffle on, Shuffle on……
