Buzzcocks - Spiral Scratch EP "40th Anniversary" 29/1/2017


On this day, 29 January 1977 - Buzzocks released their DIY Debut Record, a 4 track EP called "Spiral Scratch" on New Hormones Label.

1. Breakdown

2. Times Up
3. Boredom
4. Friends of Mine

For me personally this was the defining Punk Rock Record of the genre.  Punk Rock Do It Yourself, literally.

Nothing better before, during or after.  This record put Manchester and Punk Rock on the world stage.

Thank You Howard Devoto, Pete Shelley, Steve Diggle, John Maher, Martin Hannett and Phil Hampson for the greatest Punk Rock Record of all time.
