Buzzcocks at Paradiso


Recommended Posts

That must be because their string of classic singles sound so fresh and timeless, and have been so influential on that strand of melodic pop-punk that has proliferated in recent years. Buzzcocks actually formed in 1976 by original vocalist Howard Devoto (who later fronted the equally influential post-punk combo Magazine) and Pete Shelley; one of the very first bands to form as a direct result of the Sex Pistols phenomenon (when the latter were still an explosion waiting to happen) and the first UK punk band to release a single on an independent record label. In so doing, they also played a major part in spawning the DIY / indie-scene. Really, one of the most underrated bands of all time, in my view.
