In September, 2002, at KROQ/Levi's Inland Invasion 2 festival in southern California, Buzzcocks played a blistering set in front of 60,000 fans. Joining Buzzcocks on the bill this day were a collection of the finest artists punk has to offer: Sex Pistols, The Damned, The Offspring, X, The Distillers, Social Distortion, Bad Religion, T.S.O.L., Circle Jerks and many many more. It was a stunning testament to the power of punk rock across generations of musicians and fans. The Buzzcocks’ new album promises to provide a learning experience yet again for many a would-be punk-pop outfit. With superlative production by Tony Barber, the band has recorded an album that matches the power and prowess of their legendary live performances. Songs such as “Keep On,” “Friends,” “Sick City Sometimes,” and “Useless” demonstrate unparalleled passion and power framed in typically catchy pop melodies.
