The Vault: Buzzcocks - Are Everything

Posted on the 06 December 2018 by Rw/ff @rwffmusic
It's very sad to learn about the death of Buzzcocks frontman Pete Shelley, who has died today (6 December 2018) aged 63. Formed in 1976, the seminal Manchester punk band were hugely influential, and were active right up until the end, with a number of dates planned for 2019. Shelley's voice was unmistakable and provided a melodic gift to counter the group's hard edge.
I first bought a Buzzcocks record 19 years ago in 1999, when I picked up a CD copy of their Operator's Manual compilation, mainly due to hearing the incredible 'Everybody's Happy Nowadays' on the radio. Another track from it that became a favorite was the superb 'Are Everything', which was released as a single back in 1980. I went to watch the Buzzcocks once when they played in Bristol back in 2006. However, after arriving late, I was told that the gig had already finished. Sad that I never got to see them live.
Best wishes and respects go out to Pete Shelley's family at this sad time. He will be remembered for a long time to come...
