I got my BUZZ Splatter yesterday in the mail! Cherry Red Records has released a previously unreleased reunion record demo from the band from 1991. It’s a great little number with a great feel for nostalgia and a great way to remember Pete Shelley.
Watch out, they will sell you anything and everything they can.
The band had disbanded in 1981, and reformed in 1989. They worked on a demo and released a demo cassette that went into circulation in 1991. It features demo tracks and songs that appeared on later records, some of which were not heard until now. That punk energy never left.
