First post

Ok, this is the first post of what I hope will be many. The format may change, depending on how things work out, but the essential idea here will be to showcase great, current bands, as well as the occasional dalliance into the past.

For a bit, until I get my footing at least, I'll just be posting videos and uploading songs here and there along with a spattering of words. Anyways...

To celebrate the birth of this blog, here is a great video of (the) Buzzcocks playing what is probably their best (if not most played) single, "Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't Have)", which may or may not have been about a homosexual relationship between Pete Shelley, and, well, some guy. This particular video was shot in 1978 at the Lesser Free Trade Hall in Manchester, England, where, just a short time before, the Sex Pistols blew away the aimless young rock and rollers of the day, moving them away from pub and glam rock and on to their future callings.


If you liked that video, check out the original and a cover below:
