Buzzcocks drop album on 1-2-3-4 Go!, new video for “It’s Not You”

My first exposure to Buzzcocks – the English punk band that rose to prominence in the late-'70s before disbanding in 1981, only to reunite eight years later – was in 2003 when they opened for Pearl Jam on the Seattleites' Riot Act tour.1 They were playing about 45 minutes outside of Boston in Mansfield, Massachusetts at a soulless open-air shed (sorry, amphitheater) once known as Great Woods, at the time the Tweeter Center, and now the Xfinity Center (hooray, corporate branding!), and I'm not going to mince words: there is no worse place in the world to see a punk [...]

The hits kept coming: Buzzcocks shine at Slim’s

Dr. Dog (and Monsanto) at Cal Day 4/21/12…… plus Buzzcocks 4/20/12!

It was the most beautiful day of the year; clear, sunny and warm. Dr. Dog played a great free show in front of the University Library on UC Berkeley's Memorial Glade as part of its annual Cal Day. They rocked through the catalog including multiple numbers from my favorite records We All Belong and Fate. Shucks, there was free root beer for cryin' out loud. What could possibly go wrong?! Then I strolled by this tiny sign. I had to read it a few times. Monsanto and UC have partnered to bring us toxic lawns?! Ee-gatz! It's one thing to [...]
