Exploding out of Manchester, Buzzcocks are one of the most talented of all the bands that punk produced

Their many singles included 'Orgasm Addict’, 'What Do I Get’, and ‘Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone you Shouldn’t’ve)', and they remain eternal classics. This special event sees The British Library and Classic Album Sundays (CAS) celebrate Buzzcocks’ impact and legacy through their own words and music. Original members Steve Diggle and Pete Shelley and manager Richard Boon talk with radio host, journalist and CAS founder Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy interspersed with vinyl playbacks of some of their best music on the Classic Album Sundays hi-fi. 

Please note, this event was previously advertised as taking place on Wednesday 8 June. 

This event will be live streamed on our Facebook page.

Punk 1976-78 is part of punk London, a year of events, gigs, films, talks and exhibits celebrating 40 years of punk heritage and influence in London
