Manchester’s Pop Punks BUZZCOCKS Released Second Album ‘LOVE BITES’ Forty Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

22 September 2018

Band: BUZZCOCKS (Manchester, UK)

Album: LOVE BITES – the band’s 2nd LP

Released: 22 September 1978 – 40 years ago

BBC MUSIC review: “While ‘Love Bites’ – following the excellent ‘Another Music In A Different Kitchen’ – seemed a little dour and tentative at the time, at the heart lies an urge to finally throw off their past associations and forge something totally their own. The compressed twin guitars, sparse riffs and rumbling toms here reach their apogee.” Full review here.

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: The only punk band whose songs you not only could scream along, but also whistle and hum along. Peppered pop punk  without age…
