BUZZCOCKS - Singles Going Steady LP
Singles Going Steady was the Buzzcocks' classic Singles compilation originally released in 1979. Re-mastered from the original tapes and with the artwork restored under the supervision of Malcolm Garrett (designer of the original sleeves) along with the addition of essays penned by Jon Savage and Clinton Heylin, the packaging is a wonder to behold.
Released quickly after their third studio album, A Different Kind Of Tension, in 1979, Singles Going Steady collected their first eight United Artists singles, A-sides on the first side, with B-sides on the reverse. From the hits Love You More, Promises, Ever Fallen in Love, Everybody’s Happy Nowadays to the bleak Something’s Gone Wrong Again and the repetitive, mantra-like Why Can’t I Touch It, this captures the group at their fleeting best, as essential to the late 70s as the Sex Pistols or The Clash.
There is no punk in the world, to our knowledge, that does not love this record. We include ourselves in that lot of course. Where was the first time you heard Orgasm Addict? For me, it was an all-night mini ramp session with the crew, the night I learned lipslides. The feeling was right. -Jensen
