1. Back in the day

I worked with a woman who was also a college radio deejay, and who was married to an FM deejay on the most popular FM station in Cleveland, so she was very plugged into the music scene. She knew Howard Devoto and had a mad crush on him.

So thanks for the memory-jogger!

2. Glad to do it

 

The Buzzcocks are one of my all time favorite bands. So many great songs. Everybody knows The Clash, Sex Pistols and Ramones. The Buzzcocks are often overlooked, and itís a crime. They belong among the pantheon of the greats.

5. GREAT song!!

 

Definitely a classic.

They were so young here. And I love the pogoing audience.

Just a great band. I love them live. Theyíre even better live than on their studio recordings. I know youíve heard their Peel Sessions. Fast Cars Peel Session blows away the studio recording! And the studio recording ainít half bad, either.

Just, wow.
