Buffalo Huddleston – Bubble

The word ‘bubble’ is one that has probably taken on a new meaning for many of us over the past year, particularly in Guernsey where our release from pandemic related lockdowns and then our lives after those have been somewhat governed by which 'bubble' we are existing in, whether it be our ‘household bubble’, our...

Largely this is down to the fact... Continue Reading →

Gregory Harrison – 109

Almost five years ago Gregory Harrison released his self-titled solo debut EP to much acclaim within Guernsey’s music scene and further afield, but since then his solo endeavours have taken something of a back seat as he focussed on being part of The Recks. Since the band have gone on something of a hiatus following... Continue Reading →
