Biography

Huw Bunford (also known as “Bunf”) (born 15 September 1967, Cardiff, Wales[1]) is the guitarist in the rock band, Super Furry Animals.

Bunford used to be a teacher. His last teaching position was Head of Art at Ysgol Gyfun Rhydfelen near Pontypridd. He played with Guto Pryce in the punk band, U Thant, before they both joined Super Furry Animals.[2]

Huw Bunford’s first band was the Welsh-language school band, Edrych am Jiwlia (Welsh) which was formed in Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Glantaf, Cardiff.

Born: 15 September 1967, Cardiff
Roles: Guitar, pedal steel, vocals

Bunf met Gruff Rhys on the roof of a train in 1990. According to an early interview with the Melody Maker, “It was one of those narrow gauge railways with a steam train. It’s not like it was an InterCity 125.”

Bunf was that rarest of breeds - a teacher who was liked by his pupils. He taught art for two years in a primary school, and for two in a secondary. In an early interview, he told the NME, “I was a soft touch and they knew it. I got on with them better than the teachers, which says something about the mentality. Even my registration class were registerin’ themselves. I was a very bad teacher.”

But when the band began to make waves, Bunf became something of a local hero. When he was arrested for drug possession in 1996, his former pupils scribbled ‘Free Bunf’ on the school walls (he was let off with a fine). And when SFA once played in the area, he took to the stage with the words, ‘School’s out, rock’n’roll’s in!’
