Ever fallen in love

£10.99

When Pete Shelley, lead singer of legendary punk band Buzzcocks, passed away in 2018 we lost one of music’s brightest stars – as well as the chance to hear his story in his own words. Or so it seemed. Now, recordings have surfaced of a series of remarkable interviews in which Pete tells the story of his life, his band and his place at the beating heart of the punk explosion in fascinating detail. Recorded over a series of late-night calls with a close friend, the tapes hear Pete talk song-by-song through Buzzcocks releases to reveal the personal memories behind the music and the inspiration for masterpieces such as ‘Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)’ and ‘What Do I Get?’.

When Pete Shelley, lead singer of legendary punk band Buzzcocks, passed away in 2018 we lost the chance to hear one of music’s brightest stars tell his story. Or so it seemed.

Now, recordings have surfaced of a series of remarkable interviews in which Pete tells the story of his life, his band and his place at the beating heart of the punk explosion in fascinating detail.

Recorded over a series of late-night calls with a close friend, the tapes hear Pete talk song-by-song through Buzzcocks releases to reveal the personal memories behind the music and the inspiration for masterpieces such as ‘Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)’ and ‘What Do I Get?’.

Published for the first time and with the blessing of Pete’s estate, Ever Fallen In Love: The Lost Buzzcocks Tapes is a tribute to a founding member of punk and a chance to hear one of music’s true visionaries tell his own story at last.

‘Perfectly executed, highly detailed, incredibly interesting.’
-HENRY ROLLINS, Black Flag

‘Shot through with self-doubt and mild regret, Pete Shelley’s lovesick pop classics have a bittersweet charm that will forever speak to the young romantic’

-JOHN COOPER CLARKE
