CD / Another Music In A Different Kitchen / EMI
THIS is the Buzzcocks record I believe you need. The second record 'Love Bites' is good, but nowhere as classic as this, and the singles comp is superseded by this record. All songs please.

CD / various / Virgin France
The musical accompaniment to the film Downtown 81, which starred cult artist Jean Michel Basquiat as a roving bohemian traipsing from one stodgy Lower East Side dive to another, the 81 soundtrack documents the different spices in the NYC batch as the decade turned.

CD / Pure Mania / Columbia
A great LP with clean production, lots of energy, and fun songs with great melody that stick in your head. After all, this is the band with the song 'Stiff Little Fingers' that inspired the name of the Irish band a few years later.
