EP231: Buzzcocks “Singles Going Steady”

Buzzcocks first three proper studio albums, released from 1977-’81, are all very good but nothing released by the band (or really any other band) before or since can touch their 1979 singles compilation.  Whether or not you’re a fan of Punk, Pop Punk, Power Pop or the fucking Beatles, Singles Going Steady is undeniable.  It’s a lesson in world class song writing with a driving pulse and hooks for days.  None of your favorite bands exist without it.   

RIP Pete Shelley 

RIP Bob Nalbandian
