BUZZCOCKS: [1994] Love Bites & Another Music in a Different Kitchen

While the Buzzcocks' singles captured the band's energetic, tightly wound pop style perfectly, the band experimented a bit more with song structures on their full-length albums. Many of the album tracks were in the vein of their classic singles, but the band also played some twisted, draining instrumental sections that were almost as impressive as their concise pop songs. Of their first two albums, the debut Another Music in a Different Kitchen is the stronger record, but Love Bites is only a shade weaker.~~ Stephen T. Erlewine

Hey "Nando"
Sorry to contact you through the comment space, but I didn't know how else to do it, but wondered if you'd consider us.
Bored Youth was one of the original punk/hardcore bands of the Detroit/Midwest scene of the early 80's. Due to a couple of things that happened we broke up. Now there's been renewed interest because of books like Tony Rettman's "Why Be Something That You're Not?" and the release of the Touch and Go mags. Also, the release on vinyl of one of our old previously bootlegged demo's on Alona's Dream Records.

All this inspired us to record some new tracks, which I'd characterize as "post-punk power pop emo-core rock by some old fucks who should really know better."
Below is a link to our Bandcamp page where you can get a couple of free downloads from our very soon to be released 10 song album.
Feel free to post, etc. If you have any questions give me a shout.
