Listing Detail Tabs

five CD set containing a quintet of albums from the British Punk band led by singer/guitarists Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle:


The Buzzcocks delivered then (and can still do so now) land-speed record sub-three minute songs like Fast Cars, No Reply, Orgasm Addict, Ever Fallen in Love With Someone You Shouldn't've?, What Do I Get?, the stop-start Noise Annoys and other such durable songs.
The evidence of their energy is here on the live album Entertaining Friends (recorded in March '79, but not released until '92). It is the centrepiece of the five albums in this set which collects their first three albums from the Seventies (Another Music in a Different Kitchen, Love Bites and A Different Kind of Tension) and tacks on their first reunion album All Set ('96).
Although the Buzzcocks had a reputation for those furiously focused singles they also stretched out on post-punk pieces like Moving Away From the Pulsebeat (on Another Music) which went out to seven minutes over a relelentless rhythm (like Bo Diddley's patented sound as reimagined by a British guitar band). It reflected Shelley's interest in Krautrock but never took its eye off the tension they could conjure up.
It was a different kind of tension . . .  and as guitarists in an era renown for being anti-guitar heroics, neither Shelley nor Steve Diggle shied away from soloing.
