10" - Black Vinyl
New 10-inch single from punk icons Buzzcocks. Senses Out Of Control offers a sneak preview of the new LP, and is issued on the back of Buzzcocks’ forthcoming live dates. Released on limited edition vinyl boasting two exclusive non-album tracks.
Buzzcocks are back! The legendary Manchester punk band should need little introduction. Back in 1977, they all but gave birth to a new generation of independent labels with their debut EP ‘Spiral Scratch’. Thereafter, their melodic brand of punk-pop proved irresistible, leading to hit singles and three landmark albums. They broke up in 1981 but reunited in 1989 and have been going steady ever since. Sadly, singer Pete Shelley passed away in 2018 but founder member and the band’s other singer/songwriter Steve Diggle has kept the flag flyin.
In early 2020, having signed to Cherry Red, they issued a limited edition 7” ‘Gotta Get Better’, an ironically portentous title given this was on the eve of the COVID pandemic. Since then, forced into hibernation as the world’s concert halls were put on ice, Steve and the band busied themselves with a brand new studio album, which will be unveiled in the summer.
