Buzzcocks + The Scruff
BUZZCOCKS + Special guests… The Scruff
Live at Bedford Corn Exchange – Friday 17th May 2013
One of the great British punk pop bands from the mid 70s play their Bedford debut show at the Corn exchange this May. Buzzcocks are an English punk rock band, formed in Bolton in 1976, led by singer-songwriter-guitarist Pete Shelly and singer-songwriter-guitarist Steve Diggle. The bands raw sound energized the nation’s stagnated youth in 1976 and they have left us with some classic 3 minute punk pop tunes that remain timeless to this day.
The band made unique history by releasing their debut Spiral Scratch ep on their own label something that was unknown at the time in 1976 and started a D.I.Y ethic amongst Indie bands of releasing their own records on their own label – something that is still evident with new artists of today.
The band have released some unforgettable songs such as Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve), Orgasm Addict, What Do I get, Everybody’s Happy Nowadays, Boredom and Promises and live on stage they remain as vibrant and hungry as ever before with their legendary high octane performances.
Support for the night comes from one of Bedford’s hottest young new bands hand picked by the band and ourselves to support – THE SCRUFF.
Doors open at 7.30pm, the first band takes to the stage at 8pm.
Tickets are on sale in advance priced £18 and can be bought in person from The Corn Exchange Box Office (now based in the Tourist Information Centre) and from Luscious Juice Bar in Lime Street (no booking fee).
