Seminal British punk band Buzzcocks reunited in the late ‘80s after 10 years and nothing much had changed! This recording, from a British “Central TV” performance, captures a terrific set. The same tight, fast, lyrically sharp songs that first brought them acclaim in 1977 are present here, including “Ever Fallen In Love,” “Walking Distance,” and “Autonomy,” as well as some lesser- known tracks. This recording is not of the highest fidelity, technically, but with great songs and polished performance, that doesn’t really matter.
Score: 8 out of 10
