Buzzcocks 1976 versus the Misfits

There's an interesting Buzzcocks record review site here by Mark Prindle.  He highlights the early work with Howard Devoto and points out the sound on the Misfits album "Legacy Brutality." 


I am a fan of The Misfits and as both bands started around the same time you can't help but wonder if Mark has a point. The drumming is uncanny in places.

The Damned were very much influenced by the Misfits too.

Compare to the early Buzzcocks Demos.


Suddenly we are eating sandwiches. 

Alternate bites, I mind she purrs.
And exchanging endearments.
Lies a girl I bite she swallows.
My sweet boy she bites, I swallow.

We don't yet do with our gills full.

What about it, my memory. 
We're talking of my memory. 
Not much that it’s getting better that it’s getting worse.
That things are coming back to me. 
Nothing is coming back to me. But to conclude from that.

Suddenly we are eating sandwiches. 
Alternate bites, I mind she purrs.
And exchanging endearments, my sweet girl, I bite she swallows.
My sweet boy she bites, I swallow.
We don’t yet do with our gills full.
