Product Description

BBC Review

Often dismissed at the time as a uniform, dull and oiky movement, punk rock threw up, sometimes almost literally, an immense variety of bands, from the 60s psychedelica of The Stranglers and the RnB of The Jam, to the icy noir of Siouxsie and the Banshees and the luminous plastic satire of X-Ray Spex. But most inventive of all were Buzzcocks, who began with the cheapo Steve Harley-esque sneer of Howard Devoto but, when he left, turned into the greatest world-weary but somehow innocent punk pop group.

The term "perfect pop" is misused to hell, because it's mostly applied to bands that never went near the charts; but Buzzcocks were pop, in that they consistently had top 20 singles. In Pete Shelley–angelic, sexually ambiguous, eyebrow-raised–they had one of the best songwriters of the time, and in Steve Diggle–loud, mod, a bit barky–they had his perfect foil, and a man also capable of great songwriting.

Another Music in a Different Kitchen was their debut album. Everything about it–from its silver, orange-lettered sleeve to Martin Rushent's aluminium-sheen production–is right. The songs are all brilliant pop tunes in the classic style, but with lyrics whose doomed romanticism would put John Lennon to shame, and the kind of riffs that only a Stooges and T.Rex fan could write. From I Don't Mind's woozy declaration that "reality's a dream" to Sixteen's stentorian "And I hate modern music! Disco! Boogie! Pop!", Another Music... was as melodic as pop has ever been and as honest and real as any plaid-faced grunge act.

Best of all, it wasn't just a set of songs: it was an album. Upgrading and referencing the Spiral Scratch EP's Boredom as bookends to the whole thing, Another Music... mixed Shelley's remakes of Devoto lyrics (Fast Cars being a standout) with new brilliance like I Don't Mind. Diggle added one of Buzzcocks' greatest songs, the motorik genius of Autonomy. And the whole thing finales with punk's greatest end-of-side-two track, the epic Moving Away From the Pulsebeat, which still sounds like nothing else ever recorded. It's my favourite album ever; buy it and find out why.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great albums + loads of extras 22 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bit difficult to be objective. Growing up in Manchester in the mid seventies the Buzzcocks were just such an important part of my life and that of my friends I can only give this five stars. The posey, tough bands from London were okay but the Buzzcocks were ours, camp (well Pete Shelly anyway), cuddly, witty, intelligent and friendly and for us epitomised what punk was all about more than any other band out there. Another Music.....is a just a great album and this package has so many great extras it is just wonderful. I like to play the original album as a single entity then to cherry pick from some of the

4.0 out of 5 stars Songs In The Key Of Love 27 Oct 2008
By Coincidence Vs Fate TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It's early 1978 and already the Buzzcocks' blueprint is well-established; L.O.V.E.

The Fab Four's debut album is a lot of things; fast, furious, spiky, even progressive, but the golden thread throughout is love.

The album kicks off in fine fettle with "Fast Cars", "No Reply" and the 100MPH "You Tear Me Up", but the album really comes into it's own with the first of Pete's love songs, the delicious "Get On Our Own", a surefire single if I ever heard one. The album then dips a little with "Love Battery" and "Sixteen" before coming back to form with one of Pete's catchiest songs, the immense "I Don't Mind", just as good as "Ever Fallen" in my mind. Two great tracks follow, another Pete love song in "Fiction Romance" and one of Steve Diggle's best, "Autonomy". The album ends with the weakest track, "I Need" before ending with the bizarre "Moving Away From The Pulsebeat", a remarkable, lengthy track that reminds me of prog rock for some reason, maybe that was the Can influence, who knows.

There are loads of extras, some essential, some not so, it's nice to have the inclusion of the associated singles such as "Orgasm", "What Do I Get" and a shedload of Peel Sessions. The demos are also interesting, though I'm not too bothered about the live show, we've had a load of those before, but still welcome.

A great debut album from one of the true unsung heroes of British music. Get this, get "Love Bites" and then get "Tension". You'll thank me for it, I promise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 11 Feb 2013
By J
Format:Audio CD
I fear all those added tracks will detract from the impact of this wonderful record. Though I'm sure they're good to have too.

I recommend you stop it after "Moving away from the pulsebeat". Then do the dishes and then listen to the rest.

The other thing (and what prompted me to write this) is David Quandickhead's idiotic and so off-target remark about the "cheapo Steve Harley-esque sneer of Howard Devoto". As it happens I love Steve Harley as well as Howard Devoto (even if nobody could accuse the former of ever writing a lyric that made sense). But that's neither here nor there - what is, is that HD bears no resemblance to SH beyond the fact that both were slightly unorthodox in singing style - not even in the same ways. Furthermore, the one Buzzcocks record that Devoto sang on, the unduly famous "Spiral Scratch" EP, is pretty much punk by numbers (sneery indeed, but more in a Jonny rotten than a Steve Harley style). Whatever. Go buy Magazine's Real Life along with this, enjoy them both, and why not get Cockney Rebel's greatest hits while you're at it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Punk for the sensitive type 17 Feb 2010
By ifutureman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Sex Pistols may have started the punk rock revolution (at least in the UK) but for this humble reviewer's money, they didn't hold a candle to Manchester's own Buzzcocks. Rather than stick to one-dimensional nihilism espoused by the Pistols and most other bands of the era, or the almost exclusively political angle taken by the Clash, the Buzzcocks did what no other band seemed able to do: merge the fury and adrenaline surge of punk rock with raw emotion and pop sensibility.

Forget about lofty (and quite often pitifully naive) proclamations about the state of the world; what Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle wrote about were very personal issues; i.e. why doesn't that girl (or guy; the "you" Shelley often sings to is rarely gender specific) like me? Why can't I have what everyone else seems to get? Why are my hormones ruling my life? Lines like "I don't know if I'm an actor or ham, a shaman or sham" make clear that the Buzzcocks were not interested in wrestling with issues beyond those that every human being faces deep inside. And that's why this music is timeless. The identity/sex drive/relationship issues that dominate their work are relevant today and always will be.

But none of this would really matter if the music was not so incredibly catchy. The Buzzcocks were blessed with pop smarts and they knew their way around a hook, a bridge, a verse and a chorus better than any punk band, then or since. (I often wish that Green Day fans would listen to the Buzzcocks and hear the band that did it all much, much better a long time ago.) Heartache and loneliness were never more perfectly set to music than in songs like "Fiction Romance", "What Do I Get?" or "I Don't Mind".

The 2010 reissue takes a five star album and supplements it with contemporaneous singles (some of their best songs were not on their full-length albums) and a very special treat: the entire set from their gig at the closing of the Electric Circus, a Manchester venue that was critical in the development of the punk music scene in the U.K. midlands. The recording has been something of a Holy Grail for fans, only one song ("Time's Up") ever having been released. Topping off this magnificent package are a few Peel Sessions and 14 demo recordings (of pretty decent sound quality).

All in all, this is a perfect reissue of a perfect album. "Another Music In A Different Kitchen", alongside "Love Bites" and "A Different Kind Of Tension" constitute the greatest trio of power-pop albums ever recorded.

5.0 out of 5 stars great reissue. great. 13 Feb 2010
By Stargrazer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
At last, this deluxe 2-disc re-issue lands stateside. Always a fantastic album composed of nearly singles-quality songs (and in fact, overshadowed only by "Singles Going Steady" in their catalog), "Another Music In A Different Kitchen" is a superb studio-capture of one of punk's first wave greats. The Buzzcocks weren't standard-bearers for nihilism, they didn't cop a political stance, and they didn't spur a fashion revolution. They just wrote songs. Great songs. Caught raw and obviously in well-rehearsed and earnestly committed form on this debut, The Buzzcocks birthed a classic of concise songwriting and aggressive playing.

The extras are well-received. In many ways, the reissues of their first three albums render "Singles Going Steady" nearly obsolete. Were it not for the sheer historic narrative arc of that collection, just having the tracks appended onto "Another Music...," "Love Bites," and "A Different Kind Of Tension" would be enough. But really, the Peel sessions, demos, singles, and live shows included are just frosting, great (and even revelatory) as they might be. The album itself is the reason to buy this affordable, nicely packaged and very well mastered limited edition reissue. I'd still strongly recommend getting "Singles Going Steady" as well as the 3 reissues, though in this day and age of 99-cent mp3s it might be hard to convince you that you really haven't heard the songs unless you've heard them all in one glorious slab.

4.0 out of 5 stars The British Ramones 16 Jun 2014
By Yeravam Hoshama - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Buzzcocks emerged from the mid/late 70's British punk scene, when the genre was still new and there weren't many bands to compare them to. But even back then, the Buzzcocks really managed to stand out, at least in their native UK. They eschewed the nihilistic rage, political fervor, spiky hair, and ripped jeans of their contemporaries for a cleaner and (arguably) more sophisticated approach. Pete Shelley and co. wrote innocent, infectious, witty, and cheeky pop songs about love, yearning, and teenage angst, setting them to the barbed wire guitars and manic rhythms typical of other punk rock bands. Although they weren't the first pop-punk band (that honor goes to the Ramones, whom the Buzzcocks acknowledge as an influence), they were undoubtedly one of the best. Unlike the Ramones, who are an amazing band in their own right, the Buzzcocks had bigger melodies, sartorial sophistication, and an air-tight rhythm section courtesy of bassist Garvey and drummer Maher.

Another Music....is their 1978 debut LP, often considered their best work alongside Singles Going Steady (a singles and b-sides compilation). This CD re-release also contains some of their best singles: Orgasm Addict, What Do I Get?, What Ever Happened To...?, and track #10 on Singles Going Steady (name withheld due to Amazon policy), in addition to some demos and live recordings. As for the album itself, my favorites are the exuberant "Get On Our Own", the proto D-beat "You Tear Me Up", and the deathlessly catchy "I Don't Mind". "Fiction Romance" has a really nice 60's pop hook, which I think would have made for a great single, and songs like "Fast Cars", "No Reply", and "I Need" are wheelbarrows of fun.

So why the 4 star rating? Because personally, I tend to prefer Singles Going Steady and the criminally underrated Love Bites over this. The latter doesn't have AMDK's oceans of energy and manic drumming, but more than makes up for it with its utterly fantastic songwriting, and contains many of the best songs they've ever put out. Also, this album does have a couple of tracks I could do without ("Sixteen", "Moving Away From the Pulsebeat"). All that being said, this is still an essential record, and a worthy addition to anyone's punk collection.
