Buzzcocks founders PETE SHELLEY and HOWARD DEVOTO are to premiere several new songs at a rare live show this coming weekend.
The pair will pop up to play a brief set at Irregular @ The ICA on Saturday (September 2) – part of two days at the venue featuring and celebrating the artists on Mute Records.
Shelley and Devoto, performing their brief set under the temporary name ‘buzzkunst’ will join Speedy J, Echoboy, Barry Smith from Add N To X and a number of other DJs.
Devoto left The Buzzcocks in 1977 in order to form Magazine, leaving Shelley to become lead singer and lyricist. There is no release date yet on the new material, nor any suggestion on new material’s direction, though the pair have said “it’ll be kind of different, we think you’ll find”.
