The Buzzcocks, Gang of Four: Club 57, New York NY

Richard Grabel, New Musical Express, 22 September 1979

THIS IS AN interesting juxtaposition: Buzzcocks work on a high energy formula, a formula that works; Gang Of Four work away from formula – they acknowledge the presence of structure in their music and then try to dismantle it.
