Buzzcocks - A Different Kind Of Tension


On this date in 1979, The Buzzcocks released their third album, A Different Kind Of Tension. It contained the singles, "You Say You Don't Love Me" and "I Believe", neither of which charted, though the album reached the #26 spot on the U.K. albums chart. It would be their last regular album (aside from compilations) until they reformed years later. The Manchester, England punk band disbanded in 1981 but 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.
