Steve Diggle – Some Reality

He’s renowned as one of the kings of the punk rock riff but, even before he joined the Buzzcocks back in 1976, Diggle was a fully-paid-up scooter boy. The evidence is here?12 tracks of Rickenbacker power chords, folky acoustics and choruses that duck-walk down Carnaby Street like a wind-up Paul Weller doll. “Something In Your Mind” alone proves Diggle is a gifted songwriter with passions that can’t be sated within the Buzzcocks’ punk-pop remit, making this an entirely creditable solo diversion.
