A bit before my time, but the type of band where you know way more of their songs than you imaged, once you start listening with purpose.

Why Can't I Touch It - it's the best punk song ever in my book. RIP.

"Orgasm Addict" by The Buzzcocks (tee hee!!!) really TOUCHED me on a near-nuclear level
at a very impressionable young age. TMI: Might be the closest this poor sod will ever get to
achieving any kind of true- life-skills Ph.D. by any stretch of the imagination!!! R.I.P.

Pete was a mate and I will miss him. Ever Fallen in Love is a classic. Played all the Buzzcocks records until the grooves were worn out.
