Performer Notes
  • SINGLES GOING STEADY is a collection of the Buzzcocks' singles, including both A and B-sides.
  • Buzzcocks: Pete Shelley (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Steve Diggle (vocals, guitar); Steve Garvey, Garth Smith (bass); John Maher (drums).
  • Engineers: Alan Wistanley, Doug Bennett, Martin Rushent.
  • Recorded at Eden Studios and Abbey Road Studios, London, England; T.W. Studios, Fulham, England; Olympic Studios, Barnes, England; Strawberry Studios, Stockport, England.
  • The Buzzcocks emerged from Manchester's thriving punk enclave with a succession of startling pop singles. Tight melodies and highly memorable hooklines were enveloped in a breathless group sound full of purpose and drive which contrasted with singer Pete Shelly's dispassionate, almost throwaway, delivery. These eight singles, both a-sides and flips, covered a variety of subject matter, from masturbation ('Orgasm Addict') to 1981 nuspeak ('Everybody's Happy Nowadays'), without recourse to obfuscation. Such seminal recordings have ensured the Buzzcocks' place in a lineage just a bit below the Kinks and the Smiths as one of the best purveyors of the 45 rpm.
