Most bands would be content to release one genre-defining album in the span of a year. Not The Buzzcocks, however. Less than six months had passed since the release of their 1978 debut, the punk classic Another Music in a Different Kitchen, when they followed-up with Love Bites.  The classic single “Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve?)” crystallizes a sense of yearning, and it’s one of several songs that taps directly into this feeling; see also: “Late For the Train,” “Love is Lies,” and “Nostalgia.” The fuzzed-out guitar and taut rhythms on display sometimes go beyond what might be expected from the genre. “Operators Manual” in particular takes on a hazy, delirious aspect in which every component of the song is on the verge of reeling around the room. On the final three tracks, the band stretches things out a bit, maintaining a level of tension while regimenting the frenzied energy that had characterized Love Bites up until that point. This is a landmark album that inspired hundreds of punk bands over the years – but it also still feels fresh, forty years later. © Tobias Carroll / Qobuz

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Ian Curtis, Industrial and Universal Poet

It’s been about forty years since the singer from Joy Division took his own life, but the shadow of his death still hangs over post-punk, new wave and rock history. In just two albums, the cult band from Manchester turned grey skies, depression and urban industrialisation into beautiful music thanks to their charismatic leader, who is just as influential today.

The Cure switch to the remix…

The Cure re-edit in a Deluxe Edition “Mixed Up”, their remix album released in 1990. A unique record that came largely from the heart of their leader Robert Smith, as this interview from the time goes to show.
