Buzzcocks To Share ‘Philosophy’

Iconic U.K. punk quartet Buzzcocks will follow up its self-titled 2003 comeback album with an all-new studio disc this year. Due in late summer or early autumn through Merge, the album, which is still a work in progress, is tentatively titled “Flat Pack Philosophy.” 2005 looks to be a busy year for the band, with a series of live dates confirmed for the U.K. between March and May. Notable among them is a “Spirit of ’77” show in Manchester with the Slits’ Ari Up and 999 on March 11. Another show dubbed “Academy in the U.K.” is slated for May 1 in Birmingham and will also feature the Stranglers and Stiff Little Fingers. A Merge spokesperson says plans are tentative for North American tour dates to coincide with the forthcoming album’s Stateside release.
