Original Buzzcocks drummer John Maher is sharing clippings from his original scrapbooks. They cover two years from 1976, including the band's first press review from The Melody Maker. He's given his approval to them being uploaded here, which is great of him. Follow him at @flyingmonkphoto . More to follow.
This looks like a handbill for Buzzcocks' proposed double-header at The Ranch in the Summer of 76, but could also be a ticket. According to John Maher, the first date was halted after ten minutes as Ranch-proprietor, Frank 'Foo Foo' Lamarr, found it 'too loud'. The second date was subsequently cancelled.
