Continuing the 80s this week. A set tonight from the highly influential Punk/Post-Punk Buzzcocks, in a set recorded by the venerable Westdeutscher Rundfunk in 1981.
Always enjoyable and perennially high-energy, this set captures them during their high point and certainly during their most successful early period.
The German audience is a little laid-back or perhaps non-plussed by this stellar performance – but then, sometimes you just don’t appreciate things until they’re in the past-tense.
Enjoy this one right now – and play loud. And they’re still at it – they’re scheduled to show up in Los Angeles in September. So . . . . .get tickets.
