Buzzcocks – Spiral Scratch EP
Somebody’s just 'liked’ my latest contribution who has made a contribution themselves under Eurostyle, which mae me think, “haven’t I spotted The Buzzcocks’ 'Spiral Scratch’ somewhere in the Eurostyle category?” and I had.
Thanks for this contribution, Florian, which brings back memories of my older brother having this record. Yes, it is a classic sleeve and a memorable one. I think I might take issue with that description of 'Punk’, though. I have The Buzzcocks more down as 'New Wave’.
Incidentally, I went to see The Buzzcocks at the Assembly Rooms in Derby in October 1979 – one of the first gigs I’d have attended in my life, aged just eighteen at the time – with a support act that would, tragically, attain higher profile on the death of its lead singer, Ian Curtis, Joy Division.
Oh and finally, it’s superb to be able to date the release of 'Spiral Scratch’ to Valérie Čižmárová's 25th Birthday. I think I’ll remember that date for ever now!
