Buzzcocks Vinyl, CD & tapes by Buzzcocks at Norman Records
Love Bites was the second album by melodic Manc punks The Buzzcocks. It was originally released in September 1978, not quite 6 months after their classic debut Another Music In A Different Kitchen. Contains the single 'Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)'. LP and CD, remastered from original tapes on Domino.
Pretty much your classic punk era single. Not only did this represent the early noisy Devoto era Buzzcocks at their most lethal but also was a true DIY statement with the band distributing the record themselves bypassing the then essential industry channels. This re-issue stays true to the original pressing with just 300 copies and an insert containing the original press release.
The Buzzcock’s legendary 1976 demos, now known as Time’s Up and originally only available as bootlegs, capture all the shambling, deadpan and violent joys of punk’s first wave. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band’s first EP, Domino are bringing these joys back to heavyweight vinyl LP (with download code) and CD.
This is new music from the punk legends taken from their most recent LP. I was curious as to how they sounded these days. 'Lumpy' is probably a good descriptive. I thought it was Diggle singing but further investigation reveals it probably to be Shelley with a big mans voice these days. Still, this will keep long term fans happy.
This is a 2LP compendium of the legendary punk band covering their '77-'80 heyday. There's no arguing with the quality of the music and this compiles all the hot shot singles and their B sides. At a penny off £50 non obsessives should probably go and get a copy of 'Singles Going Steady' retailing at next to nothing on Discogs.
The debut album by vitally important UK punks The Buzzcocks, reissued. Another Music in a Different Kitchen tears straight through 11 songs, immediately establishing that this was a band to get excited about upon original release in 1978. Now livingly restored and remastered from the original tapes. Even more exciting than that is that it comes with a carrier bag.
