To mark the 40th anniversary of the original releases, the Buzzcocks will reissue the first two albums, Another Music In A Different Kitchen and Love Bites to be released on Friday, January 25th, 2019.
Another Music In A Different Kitchen will be available on Deluxe LP, pressed on silver heavyweight 180g vinyl, Standard LP and CD. Love Bites will be available on Deluxe LP, pressed on white heavyweight 180g vinyl, Standard LP and CD. Both Deluxe vinyl versions come with a recreation of Buzzcocks’ classic carrier bag and are available exclusively via indie retailers and Dom Mart.
The Buzzcocks formed in Bolton in 1976, kick-starting a musical revolution in Manchester after having organized and played at the now famous Sex Pistols show at Manchester’s Lesser Free Trade Hall in 1976. The show inspired and spawned the likes of Joy Division, The Fall and The Smiths.
Recorded at Olympic Studios in London between December 1977 and January 1978 with producer Martin Rushent and featuring the line-up of Pete Shelley (vocals / guitar), Steve Diggle (guitar / vocals), Steve Garvey (bass) and John Maher (drums), Another Music In A Different Kitchen was released in March 1978.
Love Bites was recorded in July 1978 and released in September of that year. Reaching number 13 in the U.K. album charts, it featured their highest charting single, and arguably best-known song, “Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve).”
After releasing a third album, A Different Kind Of Tension, in 1979 the band continued for a couple of years before finally disbanding in 1981. The band would re-form in 1989 for a number of shows and have continued to play live and record albums since, featuring original members Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle.
