Rising London ska-punks Buster Shuffle have announced a special 10th anniversary reissue of their debut album Our Night Out.
Featuring fan favourites such as I’ll Get My Coat and You’re Alright, it was originally released in the UK on Working Week Records in 2009 and in Europe on People Like You/Century Media Records in 2011.
Now the band are re-releasing it on their own label on December 18. The special edition includes two bonus tracks and will be available on CD, and ruby red, agent orange, toxic yellow and black vinyl.
Singer Jet Baker said: “We always wanted to do something for ONO’s 10th birthday – we just never imagined we would be in lockdown, not able to play shows and have a party together!
“We decided this would be a great way to celebrate its birthday with our fans, so we are re-releasing the record on our own label, Do Nothing Records.”
Not only has the album been re-mastered but the band have added two new tracks. “These two songs didn’t make the original album, but we always loved playing them and gigged them both heavily back in the day,” says Jet. The songs were recorded this summer using old rehearsal demos from 2008.

Although their plans for 2020 have been derailed by the coronavirus pandemic, Buster Shuffle have kept themselves busy.
They managed to squeeze in a full UK tour supporting The Interrupters in February, before their plans for the rest of the year were laid to waste by the coronavirus pandemic.
During lockdown they recorded a charity 7in single, Unsung Heroes, with all profits going to the World Health Organization.
They called up some of their friends, including members of Die Toten Hosen, Donots, Flogging Molly, Hepcat, Mad Caddies, Talco, The Infadels, Toy Dolls, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and the first lady of ska, Rhoda Dakar.
After selling 500 copies of the single they raised a whopping £3,000 for the WHO. Read more about the single HERE.
“It’s been one of our busiest years in one of our quietest years, ha ha! Who would have thought?” says drummer Tezza Mascal.
“We are just super-happy that we had a couple of weeks of relative freedom this summer to get together and record the bonus tracks and shoot some live videos for the re-release.”
