Buzzcocks - Everybody's Happy Nowadays


On this date in 1979, Buzzcocks released their seventh single, "Everybody's Happy Nowadays". It was backed by "Why Can't I Touch It?" Neither track appeared on an album until their singles compilation, Singles Going Steady, on which both tracks appeared. The single reached the #29 spot on the U.K. singles chart. They disbanded in 1981 and then reunited in 1989 for a reunion tour. Shortly thereafter, Shelley and Diggle regrouped to start the Buzzcocks again with new band members and they continue to play today.
