Buzzcocks To Release Live Anniversary Album

[b]Buzzcocks[/b] have announced that they are to release a live album from their 30th anniversary tour last year, as a digital release next month.

Fronted by [b]Pete Shelley[/b], the band were inspired by the [b]Sex Pistols[/b] to make music, and their debut album 'Another Music In A Different Kitchen' was a huge hit in the 70s punk scene.

Buzzcock's best known song 'Ever Fallen in Love (with someone you shouldn’t have)?’ enjoyed a resurrection in 2005 when Pete Shelley re-recorded it with an all-star group, including [b]Roger Daltrey[/b], [b]David Gilmour[/b], [b]Peter Hook[/b], [b]Elton John[/b] and [b]Robert Plant[/b] amongst others as a tribute to the late [b]Sir John Peel[/b].

The live album includes tracks from throughout the band's 11 album spanning career, including 'What Ever Happened To', 'Operator's Manual' and 'Orgasm Addict'.

To promote the new live release on November 26, the band will play the following venues:

[b]Leeds, Cockpit (November 23)
Edinburgh, Liquid Room (24)
Manchester, Ritz (25)
