LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts/ Buck Brothers Official Website/ www.buckbrothers.net) - On March 5, 2007 the Buck Brothers will attempt to create a World Record. In the band's native London, England, the band will attempt to play 30 shows in a 12 hour period (11 am - 11 pm) with a view to achieving an illustrious entry into the Guinness Book of World Records.
Such a challenge has not been undertaken by a band before in the capital and the trio is expected to enjoy considerable media attention while attempting the record. Buck Brothers will be recruiting 'Travelling Bucksters' who will follow the group around during this historical musical tour of London.
The fifth release on the new FW Artist Collective brings the world the debut effort by UK power-pop-punk upstarts, the Buck Brothers. Me contains 12 tracks of catchy, bouncy, fun-time predatory punk-pop that sticks in your mind like a broken finger-nail on a silk stocking. The first single "Girls, Skirts, Boots, Bikes" was featured on MTV and "Harry Potter" (Daniel Radcliffe) has confessed to being "Addicted to the CD".
Buck Brothers Me will be released to stores across Canada on February 27, campus radio and publicity campaigns are already underway and the Canadian Music Week showcase is March 10th followed by a regional Ontario and Quebec tour.
'On a personal level, I'm a huge Canada-phile so returning this spring for a tour is something that myself and my fellow Bucks are incredibly excited about,' says Andy Duke. 'I absolutely love Canada and can name more Canadian celebrities than your average Canadian can. My enthusiasm is THAT strong. I'll put it to the test. When we first played in Canada last year - some of fans were incredibly generous and gave us gifts of Maple Syrup, Robert Munch books, Canadian Wine and even Timmy Ho's coffee.'

'Me is a hearty snack of an album - in the UK we would compare it to a Pot Noodle, in Canada it would be like Kraft Dinner. A classic, probably a bit bad for you, but addictive. Oh so addictive…….Me is 1979, no update, no joke, just a big bazooka made to blow away the pompous art-school punk that's brutalizing the airwaves in 2007.' - Kid Lupin, Tangible Sounds
'From the beginnings of 'Run, Run, Run, Run, Run' one cannot help but think of the band 54-40, singer Andy Duke sounds very similar to Osbourne which is a good thing.' – Celtic Bob, Let's Get Rocked
