The Buzzcocks Show New York Fans ‘The Way’ With Energetic Performance
Legendary English punk rockers the Buzzcocks graced New York City’s Irving Plaza on April 16 for a very memorable show for both old school and new school fans alike.
With over 35 years and nine studio albums under their belts, the Buzzcocks performed timeless tunes, ironically kicking things off with “Boredom” -- which contradicts what the crowd was feeling the entire night, a sensation of sheer enthusiasm.
Fans also enjoyed new tracks like "Keep on Believing," "People Are Strange Machines," "It's Not You" and "Chasing Rainbows / Modern Times" from the group’s latest effort, The Way.
Band members Pete Shelley (vocals /guitars), Steve Diggle (vocals/guitars), Chris Remington (bass) and Danny Farrant (drums) had more energy than most of the younger bands out there as they also cranked out fan favorites “I Don’t Mind,” “Fast Cars” and “Love You More.”
A setlist of nearly 25 songs just wasn’t enough to represent their lengthy career; the night ended with the very notable “What Do I Get?,” “Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've)” and climaxed (pun fully intended) with “Orgasm Addict.”
