Had a great night . Music was fabulous but too many of the audience were looking the wrong way and chatting. They should stay in the bar! But the buzzcocks were sound

Unfortunately I dont like to say it but I think the buzzcocks are over as a top band but from the jam more than made up for the disappointment even without Bruce (the stand in was amazing) the band raised the gig up a few notches and blew the roof off .so buzzcocks 6/10 & from the jam 11/10

About Buzzcocks

Buzzcocks are an english punk rock band formed in Manchester, UK in 1975, led by singer/songwriter/guitarist Pete Shelley for nearly their entire existence.

They are commonly regarded as an important influence on the manchester music scene, the independent record label movement and the punk rock, power pop, pop punk and indie rock genres in general. They are primarily remembered for their singles, a string of would-be hits that combined a strong grasp of pop song craftsmanship with rapid-fire punk energy. These singles were collected on Singles Going Steady, described by critic Ned Raggett as a "punk masterpiece" The widely covered "Ever Fallen in Love?" remains one of their best-known songs.

The name "Buzzcocks" partially comes from the manchester slang term cock meaning youngster, and its use in the 1970s ITV drama serial Rock Follies which included the catch phrases "that's the buzz, cocks" and "give me a buzz, cock!"

Buzzcocks were one of the key first generation British punk rock bands to form in the wake of Sex Pistols in 1976. They were founded by Mancunians Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto, however Devoto left soon after the group released their Spiral Scratch EP (on their own independent label), leaving Shelley to take over vocals.

They are best known for their catchy, poppy punk sound, which has been widely influential, which was adopted as Peter Shelley took over on the vocals, singing about what the whole punk rock scene opted not to sing about: love. Devoto in the meanwhile formed Magazine.

They rehearsed in a friend's kitchen and played at the all-day 100 club punk "festival", in London. At the end of 1977 the band signed to United Artists and released "Orgasm Addict", with Shelley's high-pitched vocal delivery and Ramones-esque fuzz-guitar sound ensuring the controversial single would be played over again. Later came "What Do I Get?" which hit the UK charts and showed Shelley's brilliance in songwriting.

An LP was then released, Another Music in a Different Kitchen which came with its own carrier bag, labelled "Product". In 1978-79 five chart-hitting singles were released including "Ever Fallen in Love?" and had captured a pop-loving audience by this time. Love Bites, their second LP was released later on, which had less excitement than the last album, though it did sell well, with Steve Diggle taking over lyric-writing.

October 1979 saw A Different Kind of Tension which was received badly by almost everyone, quite unfortunately. After more poorly received singles, Peter Shelley embarked in a solo career, and the band split up.

However, by 1993 they regrouped with Trade Test Transmissions, quite different from their earlier material, though well done. All Set in 1996 was another good effort at danceable pop-punk. By the next year Chronology was released, the missing album, including outtakes from the three United Artists albums.

Buzzcocks carry on touring, and releasing albums, though they have changed a lot over their thirty years, their music is hard to beat.
