What's the buzz, cocks?

So, I finally wised up and came to appreciate that Singles Going Steady is not the only Buzzcocks record worth owning. Everything from the original run is pretty brilliant. So, I gots 2 questions for you:

1. What's your favorite Buzzcocks record?
2. Are any of the studio records by the reformed/reconstituted band essential?

1) Spiral Scratch
2) I have no idea but my second favorite Buzzcocks song is from the revival era:

Author. Adventurer. Bon vivant.

Why are there so many Buzzcocks threads going on? Did one of them die, or something? Anyway, 'Another Music In A Different Kitchen' and go fuck yourself.

Spiral Scratch and Different Kitchen.

Always disliked Shelley's vocals, too twee and pretty much invented indie, and always preferred Devoto's. But I can tolerate them on the first album as he's basically doing an impression of Devoto.

No, it's just reissue season yet again.

1. A Different Kind of Tension (Singles Going Steady is obviously completely essential, too)
2. Not really, but I really liked the 2003 s/t one on Merge at the time ("Sick City Sometimes" is on that one and one of the highlights for sure; they still play it live)

Kitchen

I think Flat Pack Philosophy is the best out of the later records.

1) Love Bites

2) Both the S/T and Flat Pack Philosophy on Merge are the best of the later albums IMHO.

My take on the catalog:

Flat Pack Philosophy wasn't on Merge (Cooking Vinyl, I think).
