Buzzcocks require no introduction. Pivotal to the punk and post-punk DIY movements, the group, led by frontman Pete Shelley and co-conspirator Steve Diggle, brought a unique pop sensibility and sartorial style to the late 1970s and early 1980s. Having disbanded in 1981, the band re-grouped in 1989 and continue to write, record and perform to this day, despite the saddening and untimely loss of Pete Shelley in 2018. This release captures the eight albums and numerous singles the band produced with Shelley during a twenty three year period, alongside previously unheard rarities, demos and outtakes.

Released in association with the band, ‘The 1991 Demo Album’ is alive with the combination of punk energy and melodic and memorable song-writing the band’s reputation is founded on, and is both a long-awaited treat for fans and an important document of the group’s rebirth
