BUZZCOCKS: (1977) Time's Up

Buzzcocks are an English punk rock band, formed in Bolton in 1976, led by singer-songwriter-guitarist Pete Shelley and singer-songwriter-guitarist Steve Diggle.A fascinating semi-legitimate release of all the studio work the Howard Devoto-fronted band recorded in Manchester in October 1976. This is an expensive disc that only clocks in at 24 minutes, but it's 24 pretty great minutes. Some of the material (e.g., the cover of Captain Beefheart's "I Love You, You Big Dummy") Devoto took with him to Magazine, but the rest of the material is prime Buzzcocks: "Orgasm Addict," "Breakdown," and "Boredom" to name but a few. With Devoto singing lead, the band sound a bit more Sex Pistols-ish (something that would change when Shelley took over singing lead), and, therefore, a tad more ominous. 

tracks: YOU TEAR ME UP / BREAKDOWN / FRIENDS OF MINE / ORGASM ADDICT / BOREDOM / TIME'S UP / LESTER SANDS (DROP IN THE OCEAN) / LOVE BATTERY / I CAN'T CONTROL MYSELF / I LOVE YOU, YOU BIG DUMMY / DON'T MESS ME 'ROUND.
