spiral scratch (40th anniversary edition)
Domino is proud to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of Buzzcocks’ groundbreaking ‘Spiral Scratch’ EP with its reissue on the 27th of January 2017.
‘Time’s Up’, the 1976 demos recorded with founder & singer Howard Devoto and originally released as a bootleg, will be reissued on the 10th March. Featuring the original line-up of Howard Devoto (vocals & songwriter), Pete Shelley (guitar & songwriter), Steve Diggle (bass guitar) and John Maher (drums), ‘Time’s Up’ was recorded at Revolution Studios, Bramhall Lane Stockport on the 18th of October 1976. The session, recording Buzzcocks’ live set at the time and was engineered by Andy MacPherson. In December of the same year, the band recorded the four track ‘Spiral Scratch’ EP with a minimum of fuss in ‘downtime’ at Indigo Studios, with Martin Hannett (then going under the pseudonym of Martin Zero) producing.
