The Buzzcocks – Singles Going Steady

28 04 2011

Listened: Thursday March 10

I took a chance on some Singles Going Steady because it was on sale at Amazon. I’m glad I did, because the Buzzcocks are that rare mix of bratty loud punk that’s also well-written and insanely catchy. What other early punk band can speak of the trifecta of orgasm addiction, falling in love with people you shouldn’t, and things you want to touch but can’t, all with backing harmonies?

I don’t think there would be a Green Day without them.
