I really don't remember what year I bought this record. I experienced a 10 year drought vinyl record wise as I didn't own a record player. I knew I wanted one so I kept buying records, and this was one of them. I think I bought it second hand from a seller on eBay in the UK. But it could have come from the drunkard down the pub. Who remembers these things anyway. In any case, like any other motherfucker into cool bands I've known about BUZZCOCKS for a long time. But I've never actually heard much of them or owned any of their platters. This is their first that I do. And yeah it's a live album. From 1977!! Brill and outstanding to put it mildly. I need more Buzzcocks records!
