The bands most popular music video to date is without doubt for their anthem song "Kamikaze", which features on the bands second album "Valium Gorillas", winning single of the month in Ryans Gig Guide, and has enjoyed receiving airplay and ongoing positive feedback since being uploaded to the bands YouTube music video playlist. The title for the album is actually a quote taken from an interview with Lemmy of Motörhead who once described his voice as being a gorilla on valium. - The album itself along with their debut album ‘’All Roads Lead To’’ is available to stream / download on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon etc, or can be mail ordered - Rating 4/5 review from ‘’The Rock Asylum’’.

Interviews with the band:
Sam Liddicott - Music Musings And Such
‘’This is loud music for loud people… support this band now!’’, ‘’their song Saturday Night TV lyrically is a joy to hear coming out of a cd player and as you would expect, its full of references to the brainwashing done every week by modern television’’, ‘’this album is a great introduction to Buzzard and has a very underground feel to it throughout’’ (Nick J. Townsend - Ryan's Gig Guide)
‘’The marvellous crunch of Saturday Night TV, surely set to become their anthem… this damnation of The X Factor complete with its line (pick up your guitar and grab your drums) exemplifies the DIY attitude perfectly’’, ‘’the song No Quit rumbles like Motorhead jamming out a Georgia Satellites song and as such is superb… And Friends & Foes (our only ballad smiles Jimmy) highlights a sensitive side’’ (Andy Thorley - Maximum Volume Music).
"You guys have a real connection and love in the ranks" (Sam Liddicott-musicmusingsandsuch)
