Shush this is serious! :wink: I thought t’was a great gig. I was I’ll as always, the fcuking Crohn’s Disease always spoils my enjoyment/ life. Anyway didn’t get out of bed until 6pm but was out for 8pm via a Taxi to the Key Club in Leeds. Got straight to the front and asked the attractive and nice lass to my left if the support band had been on and she said yes, I replied great! then on walked the Buzzcocks. Great timing.

Obviously not the same without Pete and a bit strange. Gotta say Steve Diggle did a fine job and was his usual friendly self and full of energy. He did really well, Pete woulda been proud. It was a great gig and always a pleasure hearing those great punk/pop tunes. Only 1 original member now and they had added an extra guitar player to fill out the sound due to Pete not being there. I do hope Buzzcocks continue for a lot longer, imho I think Diggle has earned the right to continue as Buzzcocks.

For any fans of clothes Steve looked very smart as always in his mod gear and when he came on said he liked my haircut (a bit Weller-ish and grey/silver/white) and I thought I like your jacket! The lass next to me said fans had been discussing the said Jacket on F*c*b**k and nobody knew owt about where to buy one. So I thought I’ll ask him when he came back on for the encore and shouted Steve! Steve! and he heard me second time around and gave me a handshake and i asked where he got the jacket from, I thought it would be one of those expensive ‘Baracuta’ Harrington jackets at about £400.00 but he said “Mod Shoes’ and after a quick look on me phone I found the website and the jacket - Rally 66 Jacket By 66 Clothing in Sand with Red & Blue Stripe @ £78.00.
Not bad, I’ll have one when me Benefits come next Monday!

No idea Mista J, just some young fella, don’t recognise him at all. Not a bad gig to have though, piss easy songs to play, wouldn’t have minded that job myself. Don’t know what the hours are like though.
:smile:

I’m sure his name will turn up somewhere, don’t think he’ll be a full time member, just one of those ‘touring musicians/back up guitarist’ or whatever they call em.

Yes Sir let’s hope Steve continues for many years to come, it will be a sad day when we can no longer hear these incredible punk/pop songs, some of the finest ever written. I believe Buzzcocks were once called the Punk Beatles.
Can’t agree more. 8)
