Throughout their career the Buzzcocks methodology has remained constant: short, sharp slices of sublime guitar punk pop music, revered by a global army of fans and vitally influential to legions of bands coming up behind.

2024 sees Buzzcocks hit Australia in glorious celebration of their essential punk hit history, which includes such crunchy delights as “What Do I Get”, “Orgasm Addict”, “Promises”, “You Say You Don’t Love Me”, “I Don’t Mind” and of course the band’s UK top ten hit “Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t Have Fallen In Love With)”.

Join Buzzcocks this Oct/ Nov and witness the tour de force melody and menace of one of the UK’s original and definitive punk bands.

BUZZCOCKS

Christmas 1976. Manchester punk pioneers Buzzcocks formed by Howard Devoto and Pete Shelley have recorded and are just about to have phenomenal success with the groundbreaking, Spiral Scratch EP. Two months later, as the release starts to take off, Howard Devoto leaves.

A quick reshuffle and Pete Shelley takes over lead vocals.

Over the years, the lineups change. Only Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle remain constant members of this iconic band. The methodology remains constant too: short, sharp slices of sublime guitar punk pop music, revered by a global army of fans and vitally influential to legions of bands coming up behind.

Flash-forward to 2018. Buzzcocks are still very busy. The band signs their catalogue to Domino Records and announce a landmark performance of “Singles Going Steady” at the Royal Albert Hall for June 2019. Buzzcocks are enjoying well-deserved and high profile recognition of their contribution to British culture.

On 6th December, that bright prospect is thrown into darkness with Pete’s tragic and unexpected death. The Albert Hall show is recast as a tribute to Pete Shelley with remaining members Steve Diggle, Chris Remington, and Danny Farrant, joined by original band members, ‘special guest’ vocalists and guitarists.

And here we are in 2024. Buzzcocks continue with Steve on lead vocals/guitar, Chris Remington on Bass, and Danny Farrant on Drums. You can’t hold a good band down.
