    Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto formed Buzzcocks in Bolton in February 1976. The
    band, completed by the addition of Steve Diggle and John Maher, opened for the Sex
    Pistols in Manchester on July 20th, a follow up to the now (in)famous Lesser Free
    Trade Hall gig which Devoto and Shelley had organised the month before.
    Gigs in Manchester and London followed, and by the end of 1976, Buzzcocks became
    one of the first groups to form their own independent record label - New Hormones -
    on which they released the now-legendary and seminal ‘Spiral Scratch’ EP.
    The following year saw the departure of Devoto and the recruitment of bassist Steve
    Garvey. In August 1977, the band signed a recording contract with United Artists
    Records and released the landmark ‘Orgasm Addict’ single. This was swiftly followed
    by ‘What Do I Get?’, the band’s first entry into the UK top 40 singles chart and the
    first of a string of chart singles. Over the next three years, Buzzcocks toured
    extensively and released a trilogy of outstanding albums: Another Music in a Different
    Kitchen, Love Bites and A Different Kind of Tension, as well as the hugely influential
    and popular Singles Going Steady compilation. In 1981, the band went their separate
    ways to undertake new projects.
    1989 saw the reconvened Shelley/Diggle/Garvey/Maher line-up tour the world again
    by popular demand. Since then, the Shelley/Diggle partnership has been the core of
    sustained and successful activity without pause, punctuating the years of high profile
    gigging to date with six successful and well-received studio albums, culminating in
    2015's The Way.
    Few have had the longevity and sustained creative energy to produce the seemingly
    endless stream of truly original and fantastic pop songs that Pete Shelley and Steve
    Diggle have consistently delivered over the last four decades. Original and best.
    With the untimely passing of Pete Shelley in December 2018, Buzzcocks will
    continue to record and play live shows with founding member, Steve Diggle, taking
    over vocal duties to front the band.
    Steve has sung with the band from the very beginning, writing 50 songs, including
    hits “Promises”, “Fast Cards” & “Harmony in my Head”. He will be joined by the
    long term current line-up of Danny Farrant (Drums) & Chris Remington (Bass)
    performing all the classic Buzzcock hits & more.
    A guest guitarist will be added to all live shows.
    “I am going to raise the mast & set the sails for the next voyage of the good ship,
    Buzzcocks” – Steve Diggle
