Oh shit! Buzzcocks to reissue classic albums, perform full albums live

    Everyone’s favorite first-wave pop punks are back in the picture. Most famous for their classic 45’s collection Singles Going Steady, the Buzzcocks also produced some very solid albums in the late 70s. EMI is reissuing the oft-forgotten first three albums of the band on October 27. Another Music in a Different Kitchen, Love Bites, and A Different Kind of Tension, long difficult to find, will come out with two discs per reissue, including Peel sessions, demos, B-sides and live versions galore.

     

    If that wasn’t enough to appease you Buzzcock appetite (that’s what she said!), the band will be performing full albums from this era on their U.K. tour, in what has been dubbed the "Another Bites Tour." You do not want to miss the Buzzcocks perform live if you have the chance; I still consider their set at Irving Plaza in June 2006 one 0f the top 5 shows I ever attended.

     

    Tracks and dates are as follows:
