The Buzzcocks

One of modern pop-punk’s forefathers, The Buzzcocks were formed in 1975 by Pete Shelly and Howard Devoto in Manchester, England. They followed in the footsteps of the Sex Pistols, and joined them on tour in 1976. This was a powerful duo because of the influence both of these bands had on the future of punk rock/pop. SOME FACTS: They’ve realeased 18 albums from ’76-2006 plus 6 EPs. They broke up in ’81 and got back together in ’89 and some of their singles include “Why Can’t I touch It?”, “What Do I Get”  “Autonomy”, “Orgasm Addict” and “Fallen in Love.”

Listen “Why Can’t I Touch it?”

Listen- “Orgasm Addict”
