Buzzcocks: Live At Shepherds Bush Empire 2003

Dr4482 As the only remaining standard bearers of England’s original Punk movement that began in 1975 the Buzzcocks remain impressive for their persistence of fortitude, attitude and ability to create melodic pop hooks that never get old. The group’s founding guitarist/singer Pete Shelley and his estimable fellow guitarist/singer Steve Diggle blaze through 32 classic Buzzcocks songs such as "Autonomy," "Harmony In My Head," "Noise Annoys" and "What Do I Get" with all of the easy fury of their early days. An extended casual interview with Shelley and Diggle in the lobby of the Shepherds Bush Empire theatre reveals the duo to be loquacious and easy-going lads from Manchester. Special features include sound check, interview, text biography, posters, tour photos and a tour featurette. Aspect ratio is 4:3, with sound quality formated in Dolby Digital Surround Sound. (Live Music Concert – Four Stars, DVD features – Three Stars) Not Rated, 206 mins. total running time (Music Video Distributors)
