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 a 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 the first of theirs that I got. And yeah it's a live album. From 1977!! Brill and outstanding to put it mildly. I need more Buzzcocks records!
