Regrettably it’s true and for many of us, our first tentative steps into punk were through Buzzcocks: curiously most of their singles I bought from Easy Listening in Acocks Green village.

RIP Pete. Singles Going Steady in particular is a classic. Then there’s Spiral Scratch, Kitchen.....

Always sad news.

Easy listening record shop, God that brings back memories.

What a great band he fronted.

RIP and all that but let's not too carried away here - they were basically one hit wonders.

Jedward had more success - whether they made a greater contribution is obviously purely subjective.

That’s a bit harsh. They must have had about 4-5 hit singles early days.

The Original Ramones, Joe Strummer and now Pete Shelley.
This is the start of our heroes dropping like flies.

I pray Jet Black is taking it easy in his allotment.

What?

RIP to Pete Shelley, who was absolutely at the forefront of Punk, and penned many many ditties. Buzzcocks as well as solo

This with knobs on ... a hit factory on his own ! You can’t compare anything from nowadays that basically only has to have three FB likes to be in the charts

Looking at some recent pics of him it’s a warning to all the fat middle aged bastards you see down the Blues. Look in the mirror and if you look remotely like him, change yer lifestyle.

I also used to have the bootlegs you could get on cassette from adverts in the NME in the late 70s: Time’s Up, Razor Cuts and Best in Good Food.

Anyone else have them?

If you don't have any idea of what you're talking about why don't you just stay silent? You don't have to prove what a berk you are.

FWIW The Buzzcocks had 6 top 40 singles and influenced countless bands and individual artists. Jedward had 2 top 40 singles and influenced nothing and nobody of any worth. You may take them as an inspiration but that proves my point ;)
