As Punk took its hold on the world, many great pioneers began to surface, From Buzzcocks‘ inception to their debut 1977 4-track EP, Spiral Scratch, on through to their three classic LPs before their breakup and a Pete Shelley solo career, as well as a lucrative Howard DeVoto attachment to the classic pot-punk Magazine band (DeVoto left Buzzcocks just after the release of Spiral Scratch.), things consistently changed and Buzzcocks did well.

On May 29, Cherry Red UK will reach into the late-era Buzzcocks vaults and assemble a nice post-classic era 8CD Box called Sell You Everything: 1991-2014 [Albums, Singles, Rarities, Unreleased]. This box will provide 160 tracks from their ’90s and ’00s period. Additionally, a collection of 29 previously unreleased bonus tracks is included. As a nice inclusion, the previously unreleased 1991 Demo Album is here on the lead off CD. A re-recorded collection  of classic-era Buzzcocks (here as A Different Compilation) is meant to ease the lack of those early albums. (WHAT?! No “Sitting ‘Round At Home”?! I’ll FIX that below! Listen!) A great and stuffed booklet is packed in.
