Formed by Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto in 1976, Buzzcocks went on to become one of the most iconic and genre-defining bands of a generation. The original lineup was completed by the addition of Steve Diggle and John Maher before infamous gigs with the Sex Pistols and more.
Few bands or artists have had the longevity and sustained creative energy to produce the seemingly endless stream of truly original and fantastic pop songs that Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle have consistently delivered over the last four decades. Original and best.
With the untimely passing of Pete Shelley in December 2018, Buzzcocks have continued to play live shows with founding member, Steve Diggle, taking over vocal duties to front the band.
This summer Buzzcocks will be here in Folkestone proving once again why they are and still remain, an inspiring and pioneering band.
Support comes from Folkestone’s very own punks The Defiant Ones.
Soap, Bunny and Peck learnt to play primitive rock ‘n’ roll in the deepest, darkest depths of Folkestone in the late 80’s.
Fast forward 30 years and this time round they have found a kindred spirit in Howlin’ Marc Heywood. Marc brings his tortured howl to the party, hollerin’ and a hootin’ his way through some of the most primal beats this side of the ice age. A match made in hell.
