Turn up the fun!! Scratch Buffalo is a rock 'n' roll duo that play what the Calgary Herald calls “grinding, fuzzy, scuzzy, retro ’70s street rock."
Scratch Buffalo is a punk rock ’n’ roll duo from Calgary, Alberta. They’ve been making what the Calgary Herald called “grinding, fuzzy, scuzzy, retro ’70s street rock” since 2014.
Chris Naish and Mark Straub have spent their lives dedicated to music, working two-dozen odd jobs between them to fund the obsession. Flipping burgers, selling hot tubs, and cleaning up roadkill – all worth it to keep the music going.
In 2018, they released their debut LP, produced by The Thermals’ Hutch Harris. The self-titled album premiered on Exclaim! and reached the top twenty on six campus radio stations and the Earshot National top 200.
After touring that album, the trio became a duo. Undeterred, Chris and Mark re-worked their sound and gig-tested it. They focused on the wild, heavy vibe that got their audience moving. The result: “Strawberry Soda,” their latest LP.
Fuzzed-out, loud, and fun “Strawberry Soda” is a testament to the band’s years spent gigging, recording and songwriting. Mastered by Gus Elg (Ty Segall, King Tuff), these songs are absolute monsters whether listened to on a streaming service, cassette, CD, or “strawberry pink” vinyl.
