180g Virgin Vinyl LP! Exciting Re-Issue of Punk Pioneers' First Ever Recorded Music!

Domino is proud to be reissuing Buzzcocks’ ‘Time’s Up’, the 1976 album of demos recorded with founder & singer Howard Devoto and originally released as a bootleg.

Howard Devoto read the headline "It's The Buzz, Cock" from a February 1976 Time Out review of ‘Rock Follies’ - the 1970’s TV musical drama following the ups and downs of the fictional female rock group ‘Little Ladies’. Adapting and appropriating it for the new band that he and Pete Shelley had just formed (having just realized what a Sex Pistol was before anyone else), the Buzzcocks were officially born.

Howard and Pete went about organizing the now infamous 1976 Lesser Free Trade Hall gigs that brought punk to the provinces and galvanized the Manchester music revolution. The plan was to simply play support to the Pistols and see what happened next. The rest, as they say, is history!

Featuring the original line-up of Howard Devoto (vocals & songwriter), Pete Shelley (guitar & songwriter), Steve Diggle (bass guitar) and John Maher (drums), ‘Time’s Up’ was recorded at Revolution Studios, Bramhall Lane Stockport on the 18th of October 1976. The session, recording Buzzcocks’ live set at the time, cost £45 and was engineered by Andy MacPherson.

This exciting re-issue of the punk pioneers' first ever recorded music precedes the band's seminal debut EP 'Spiral Scratch' - now recognized as one of, if not the, most important records of the punk explosion.

"Buzzcocks differ only one way from their contemporaries: they possess a spark of originality, and their music gives you the impression they spend longer than the customary ten minutes clutching the quill in preparation to write... they are the best kick-ass rock band in the country." - Morrissey, in a letter penned to the NME, 1977
