The legendary Manchester punk band needs little introduction. Back in 1977, they gave birth to a generation of independent labels with their debut EP Spiral Scratch. Thereafter, their melodic punk-pop proved irresistible, leading to hit singles and three landmark albums. They broke up in 1981 but reunited in 1989 and have been going steady ever since.

Sadly, singer Pete Shelley passed away in 2018 but founder member and the band’s other singer/songwriter Steve Diggle has kept the flag flying. During the pandemic, Buzzcocks (Steve Diggle, guitar & vocals, Chris Remington, bass, Danny Farrant, drums) busied themselves with recording Sonics In The Soul. Recorded at Studio 7 in London, the album was co-produced by Steve himself with Laurence Loveless. 

Sonics In The Soul is available to order via Cherry Red Records on CD/Vinyl/Digital Now
