The BUZZCOCKS special guest to The Pogues at Greenwich Summer Sessions on July 30th and release "A Different Compilation" June 27th  2011    On Saturday July 30th Punk icons TheBuzzcocks have been confirmed as   special guests to The Pogues, in an open-air concert series set in the   stunning grounds of the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich.  The Buzzcocks once  called ‘Beatles of punk’ have always delivered   undiminished passion and energy and will make for a great addition to   the Saturday night.  Nirvana to Green Day, Kaiser Chiefs to Kate Nash – just a few of the   artists who have acknowledged their musical debt to punk-pop pioneers,   The Buzzcocks. This legendary band has provided some of the catchiest   and often most provocative music ever and blazed a trail for legions   of artists to follow. Their catalogue of songs pervades popular   culture – film, television and game soundtracks, cover versions in   every style – and is still thrilling ecstatic audiences on the band’s   travels around the globe.  Always innovative, The Buzzcocks have seized control of this peerless   repertoire by taking them back into the studio. The result is A   Different Compilation – an album of 24 of the band’s bestloved and   iconic songs – which achieves the seemingly impossible by bringing a   21st century slant to these already timeless anthems.  “The original records now sound like demos”, says Pete Shelley. “These   new versions, honed by years on the road, showcase the songs as we   know they should be, the way we know audiences love to hear them.”  Steve Diggle adds, “What were songs of sophisticated innocence are now   songs of experience. 'Harmony In My Head' and 'Why She's A Girl From   The Chainstore' now have a full panoramic view!”  A Different Compilation charts the high points of their career and   includes ‘Boredom’ and ‘Breakdown’ from their iconic debut Spiral   Scratch EP, the thrillingly lascivious first single ‘Orgasm Addict’   and their biggest hits, ‘Love You More’, ‘Promises’, ‘What Do I Get?’,   the hypnotic ‘Why Can’t I Touch It?’ and, of course, the classic ‘Ever   Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn't’ve)?’.  A Different Compilation captures this unique and influential group at   their most powerful and proves Buzzcocks remain contemporary and as   relevant as they always have been – a band with a past, present and a   future.
