I'm a huge fan of Howard Devoto and all his work with Buzzcocks, Magazine, Luxuria, solo etc.
Feed the Enemy is my blog set up to promote this.
I make no money from the site nor is it linked officially to Howard or any of the related bands or individual members.
It is just a fans blog, nothing more.
If you don't like any of it. Well, that's your loss, not mine.
