Collected Lyrics: Pete Shelley

Author(s): SHELLEY, Pete
ISBN13/Barcode: 9781912477159

Buzzcocks are about as legendary in British music as you can get, and still tour the world after 42 years together. There is even a TV show named after them! They are an English punk rock band, formed in Bolton, England, in 1976 by singer-songwriter-guitarist Pete Shelley and singer-songwriter Howard Devoto. They are regarded as an important influence on the Manchester music scene, the independent record label movement, punk rock, power pop, and indie rock. They achieved commercial success with singles that fused pop craftsmanship with rapid-fire punk energy. These singles were collected on Singles Going Steady, described by critic Ned Raggett as a ‘punk masterpiece’. Devoto left the band in 1977, after which time Pete Shelley became the principal singer-songwriter. He has also recorded many important albums on his own. This book collects ALL his songs, for the first time.
