Another Music In A Different Kitchen is the seminal debut album by Bolton, England punkers, The Buzzcocks. Responsible not only for co-inventing punk along with the Ramones, their debut album is also an unstoppable exercise in energy and sonic pace complemented by snooty accents, witty remarks, and a unique sense for pop melody. Originally released in 1978. Reissued album comes with a great booklet. One of the best records of the late 20th century.|
Something else from the press release:
To mark the 40th anniversary of the original releases, Domino Records is very proud to announce the re-issue of Buzzcocks seminal first album, Another Music In A Different Kitchen.
Recorded at Olympic Studios in London between December 1977 and January 1978 with producer Martin Rushent and featuring the line-up of Pete Shelley (vocals / guitar), Steve Diggle (guitar / vocals), Steve Garvey (bass) and John Maher (drums), Another Music In A Different Kitchen was released in March 1978 featuring a distinctive cover by Malcolm Garrett whose work would become inextricably linked with the band.
Famously taking their name from ‘It’s the buzz, cock’, a headline from a Time Out review of 1970s TV music drama Rock Follies, Buzzcocks formed in Bolton in 1976 by Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto, who have a strong claim to have kick-started a musical revolution in Manchester having organized and played at the now infamous Sex Pistols show at Manchester’s Lesser Free Trade Hall in 1976, a show which inspired and spawned the likes of Joy Division, The Fall, and The Smiths.
