i found a "what's on" special about buzzcocks and magazine that was aired in 1978 on grenada tv and presented by tony wilson. i've posted the whole thing on youtube and it's available here
. or, if you like, here it is embedded:
I have to admit that I find it amusing that the AARP are using the Buzzocks in their TV adverts ... anyone else ???
Can you tell, how (where) to find Buzzcock cover on Small Faces song "Here Comes The Nice"?
Tanx in advance.
if you're interested
here's some pics from the festival, i took them last year during my first and single trip to England.my journal
don't be scared of strange symbols, it's just russian..

Hi I have just discovered a bit of Luxuria, and would love to hear more, and looking at lj, this seems to be pretty much the only place that can help. I've been looking on the net to find out more but it's pretty sparse. I took a look over at Amazon but they didn't have Unanswerable Lust (the album I'm looking for). I especially want to hear the song 'Mlle'. If anyone can help that would be great!|
P.S. By the way, I'm a Buzzcocks fan too!
|» im new :)|
i went to see the buzzcocks last night|
there was some shit bands supporting though.
it was a 600 capacity venue, with about 200 people in at best
you werent allowed to take beer or bags in so I had to sit on the street and drink it with some mates
then got picked up by the police
but had finished anyway.
went in at like 5.30.
the place was fucking empty.
so we sat on the floor and waited for all the shit heads coming to see Trashlight Vision
I was with my friend mark.. Obsessed by them as well as the murder dolls and he was saying "oh I know acey I know acey slade I get to met him again"
and I just thought bullshit and carried on drinking.
5 seconds later "hey mark how you doing man?"
fucking old mess of a man acey slade comes over
so mark and him go off so mark can arse rape him or whatever then some skinhead band came on. They were shit.
so next band on were Johnny Panic.
They were a dead nice bunch of lads they signed all up my arm and the one furthest bought me a pint and we just generally hung out.
they were pretty fucking camp.
then it was the wayriders. FUCKING AWESOME.
andy bought me a full Sunday dinner at 11pm on Saturday.
then I spewed in the guys toilets.
fuck knows the next few bands lol
then the buzzcocks.
all the people waiting outside had piled in and the place went mental
beer flying fucking everywhere biggest pit iv ever seen just generally fucking great.
got smacked in the face so many times and decked though lol.
wandered though to the bar and seen the drummer from trashlight vision
so at this point I was wasted as fuck and called out "LEN YOU PUSSY GET YOUR ARSE IN THE PIT"
sop he said "come over here lass" then just welted me in the gut
so we had a fight
not hard just rough I guess
then everytime I seen him id shout some random swearword and heâ€™d shout back
so he said I could VIP at the next buzzcocks gig they are doing
so then I had another wander.
the live music had stopped but the venue still open
i snuck behind a curtain to a window and gobbed out of it cause I was feeling so ill.
I heard really camp American "what the fuck!"
and looked out the window.
oops. Spat on acey slade
apologized and climbed down the drainpipe and got given a beer for and I quote
"ace drunken climbing skills"
remembered I had to call mum and hour in advance cause it takes ages to pick me up
called her. Fuck an hour to waste.
so went back inside, upopened beer in hand and poked my head though the curtain.
police officer comes over "il take that thankyou"
so I say "oh no its for the lead singer of the buzzcocks acey sent it"
so I get taken backstage to meet them.
they're awesome guys, not like stiff little fingers.
Oh well. Just though id enlighten you all!

Don't get me wrong, I loooooooove the Buzzcocks. Their music keeps me sane. SO, I definately don't mean any disrespect but I have to know if I'm alone with this. When Pete Shelley went solo, it was terrible. I have one of his albums and it's wretched! Any thoughts on this?|
