THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Buzzcocks require no introduction. Pivotal to the punk and DIY movements, the group, led by frontman Pete Shelley and co-conspirator Steve Diggle, brought an essential pop sensibility and sartorial style to the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Having disbanded in 1981, the band regrouped in 1989 and began to tour the world and record new music, becoming legends in their own lifetime in the process. Late For The Train explores the group’s live career, and their ongoing relationship with the BBC, for whom they recorded multiple excellent sessions and live performances over the years. Crammed with previously unreleased recordings, long-forgotten shows and brilliant renditions of seminal tracks from their growing back catalogue, this companion piece to this year’s critically acclaimed Sell You Everything studio box set is produced in association with Buzzcocks, and includes notes from Steve Diggle alongside fan reminiscences, live photographs and recording information.
Following the passing of Pete Shelley in late 2018, Buzzcocks remain an active force with a strong fanbase and a considerable range of admirers across the arts and culture media.”
