The Buzzcocks - Strange Thing


On this date in 1980, The Buzzcocks released their twelfth single, "Strange Thing". It was backed by "Airwaves Dream". Neither track appeared on a regular album (though both were added to their third album, A Different Kind Of Tension , as bonuses on the CD re-release). The single was also referred to as "Part 2" as it was designed to be a three part series of singles. "Are Everything" was Part 1 and "Running Free" was Part 3. The Manchester, U.K. punk band would disband the following year.
