Very sad.
Cropredy 2009.


So sad they were fab at Cropredy!  Great lyric writer and Ever fallen in love is a seminal song...RIP Pete

Singles Going Steady on the way in to work. By crikey, what a collection of songs! Some of their later stuff is very good too. Only saw them once, in 2012, when they did a few dates with Howard Devoto and the 'classic' line-up and they were superb. RIP Pete.

Devastated  Cry Was a massive fan of The Buzzcocks back in the 70's and loved Pete Shelley's camp delivery of perfect pop songs, once Howard Devoto left.

The Buzzcocks is my No 2 all-time Cropredy moment, I loved their energy and attitude. I was nearly 15 again!

RIP Pete. Gone too soon x

Same.  And not only camp, but Lancastrian camp - a winning combination.  I loved Pete Shelley.  I was blubbing like a kid last night.

NO DEFINITE ARTICLE, people.  You will only receive the one warning  Wink Grin

Aye, very very sad news.  I adored Buzzcocks at Cropredy.  I saw them one other time a couple of years after that...and had seen a solo gig in London in '85 which was fab.  A major talent, and a major personality for the whole 'punk' scene.

Oh, and if you don't know it check out the Buzzkunst album by ShelleyDevoto, which I was amazed to see came out in 2002!  It is, officially, brilliant.

i had been out in town for a very convivial drink with some old compadres of mine. when i got on the tram home i rang the sister who informed me that Pete had died.
maybe he just moved further away from the pulsebeat, at least he's not still ill.
loved the buzzers since i bought Spiral scratch some 41ish years ago, first proper punk band i ever saw.

My first thought was "Oh Sh_t".

Those first three albums were close to pop perfection.

Saw them live a few times, first in 1978, and seeing them in 2009 was a Cropredy highlight, they were superb.

Thanks so much Pete.

Shouldn't that be not quite "16 Again"?

Was at a gig at Wembley this eve: Charlatans, then James. Both Manchester bands.

The Charlatans said they were doing the next song in memory of Pete Shelley and wished they weren't.  A pretty good rendition of Ever Fallen in Love with Someone, and the screen filled with a lovely photo of him. Very moving.

Suggs sang "Ever fallen in love"  with Pete's photo on the screens during " It must be love" at last night's Madness show at the Manchester arena.
     The onstage DJ also played "Ever fallen" and "what do I get" in the interval between the Fratellis and Madness' sets to a huge roar from the crowd.
