NFT: RIP Pete Shelley of the Buzzcocks

John In CO : 12/6/2018 8:52 pm
Died today of a Heart Attack at 63. While I wouldn't call myself a HUGE fan, I for sure was a big fan of the Singles Going Steady album. I wore that thing out for a period of time. Saw them in concert about 20 years ago and they were fantastic. He will be missed.

Probably the best punk band not named the Clash. RIP.
Clash were never really punk

They get labeled that way but really they were never part of the punk movement

The British punks were bands like:

Abrasive Wheels
Sham 69
UK Subs
Stiff Little Fingers (Irish)
The Exploited
Chaos UK
Angelic Upstarts
