The English punk rockers of the Buzzcocks were once popular in the Manchester scene and it had been a few decades and then some since the original power house performed for a crowd. Howard Devoto, the first frontman of the group, brought back the original sound to the O2 Apollo on May 25. Read on to catch a clip of this blast from the past.
He performed the entire Spiral Scratch album, with the addition of a cover of “I Can’t Help Myself” by the Troggs.
Devoto’s musical passion enticed him to become the original pioneer for post-punk group, Magazine, as well as Luxuria, dominating the 80’s in the UK. His work and collaboration with several different band mates allowed Devoto to create a credible reputation for himself. Reuniting with the old gang was an honorable tribute to his years of glory and a great testament to his accomplishments.
