  • Buzzcocks and Modern English tour New Zealand in November.

    JUST ANNOUNCED:: Classic UK post-punk band Modern English join Buzzcocks’ NZ shows.


    Modern English will join the bill for Buzzcocks NZ tour. On the legendary 4AD label Modern English were best known for timeless classics like I Melt With You, Hands Across The Sea, and Ink & Paper. This is the first time Mosdern English has played in New Zealand.


    Buzzcocks hit New Zealand in glorious celebration of their essential punk hit history, which includes such crunchy delights as “What Do I Get”, “Orgasm Addict”, “Promises”, “You Say You Don’t Love Me”, “I Don’t Mind” and of course the band’s UK top ten hit “Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t Have Fallen In Love With)”.


    Christmas 1976. Manchester punk pioneers Buzzcocks formed by Howard Devoto and Pete Shelley have recorded and are just about to have phenomenal success with the groundbreaking, Spiral Scratch EP. Two months later, as the release starts to take off, Howard Devoto leaves. A quick reshuffle and Pete Shelley takes over lead vocals.


    For decades Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle remained constant members of this iconic band. The methodology: short, sharp slices of sublime guitar punk pop music, revered by a global army of fans and vitally influential to legions of bands coming up behind.


    In 2018 the band signed their catalogue to Domino Records and announcd a landmark performance of “Singles Going Steady” at the Royal Albert Hall for June 2019, with Buzzcocks enjoying well-deserved and high profile recognition of their contribution to British culture.


    On 6th December, that bright prospect is thrown into darkness with Pete’s tragic and unexpected death. The Albert Hall show is recast as a tribute to Pete Shelley with remaining members Steve Diggle, Chris Remington, and Danny Farrant, joined by original band members, ‘special guest’ vocalists and guitarists

    And here we are in 2024. Buzzcocks continue to perform their anthems with Steve on lead vocals/guitar, Chris Remington on Bass, and Danny Farrant on Drums.
