Buzzcocks announce North Am tour, release re-issues

The seminal punk band Buzzcocks have just announced an extensive tour of the US and Canada.  Pete Shelley, Steve Diggle, Danny Farrant and Chris Remington, together for three decades, are still thrilling audiences with their amazing live shows.

The San Jose Mercury News writes of a recent gig:  “Without a doubt, the best dose of punk rock I’ve seen in a long time. Pete Shelley sounded terrific and Steve Diggle, for my money, remains the genre’s finest guitar hero. Let’s hope the band makes another trip to the Bay Area soon. If they do, dear punk rock fans, don’t miss it.”

Buzzcocks recently reissued three of their classic albums; “Another Music In A Different Kitchen,” “Love Bites,” and “A Different Kind Of Tension” on Mute Records USA.  Featuring the original albums from 1978/9 plus previously unreleased tracks, Peel sessions, associated singles, demos, backing tracks, live versions, and much more – the albums are an essential part of any true punk music fan’s collection.  Listen to one of the tracks here.
