You're Living Too Fast

The Vinyl Villain's run through of Buzzcocks singles reached Orgasm Addict yesterday. Which made me think of their first album, 1978's Another Music From A Different Kitchen (a title based on a Linder piece of art called Housewives Choosing Their Own Juices In A Different Kichen). The album closed with Pete Shelley's frenetic Moving Away From The Pulsebeat, a Buzzcocks masterclass in Mancunian street urchin punk, with thumping drums, trebly guitar and impassioned vocals. A massive breath of fresh air.

Moving Away From The Pulsebeat

Bloody hell this sounds great. First thing I've listened to today and I can't imagine it'll be bettered.

Timeless. I'll never forget how it felt to hear it for the first time either, and it still feels the same, mesmerising.

Absolutely a masterpiece! It was already stretching and twisting Punk into something new!

All I can do is heap more praise. Great song from a must-have album. Quite a day at CC's and JC's blogs too. A nice way to celebrate the kids being back in school today.
