Buzzcocks / Singles Going Steady / CD reissue
Singles Going Steady CD reissue
This Buzzcocks’ 1981 'best of' was something of an epitaph, issued commercially in 1981 when the band were no more.
It features all eight UA single A-sides to date on side one and all eight B-sides on side two. It was a perfect storm of form and substance, and proof that accidents not only do happen in pop culture, but are sometimes for the best.
It's a perfect encapsulation of the band at its three-minutes-and-out best, sliced sixteen ways, each and every slice a morsel to savour. For Buzzcocks addicts everywhere, it remains the perfect way to remember the only punk band - Pistols excepted - to draw from Malcolm McLaren the admission, ‘Your songs have real content, you know.’
The audio has been remastered from the original tapes and the artwork restored under the supervision of Malcolm Garrett (designer of the original sleeves) along with the addition of essays penned by Jon Savage and Clinton Heylin.
