Buzzcocks - Punk with some Pop tossed in.


Buzzcocks tonight, from their series of sessions done at BBC Radio 1 for John Peel between 1978 and 1979. Although there was no doubt about their being knee-deep in the Punk movement, their music could have passed for Pop in some circles - maybe because Pete Shelley was a great songwriter and like everything during that time, defied being pigeonholed.

Here are three tracks they cut as a sampling if you're not familiar with them. If you are, then you can Pogo along with them.

Not that you have to or anything . . . . .

Produced by Bob Sargeant
Recorded live Oct 18, 1978 in the BBC Radio 1 studio
1. Everybody's Happy Nowadays
Produced by Tony Wilson
Recorded live May 21, 1979 in the BBC Radio 1 studio
2. I Don't Know What To Do With My Life
3. Hollow Inside

But it would be nice if you tossed a few pennies in here and there.
