Bunford studied at Lanchester Polytechnic (now Coventry University) and worked as 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]

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

In 2013 Bunford released music with Richard Chester under the band name Pale Blue Dots.[3] Several songs were aired on BBC Radio Wales and C2 (radio) in Wales, and were posted on the group's SoundCloud page.

In 2012 Bunford performed a mix of found sounds with artist Naomi Kashiwagi at the Whitworth Art Gallery of University of Manchester.[4]
