D//E Playlist: And That's Worse // Inspired by Pete Shelley and The Buzzcocks

British punk hero, Pete Shelley, passed away last month, leaving behind a huge legacy of singles and albums with The Buzzcocks, as well as an inspiring, exploratory solo career influenced by electronica and krautrock, and a few selective collaborations.

Shelley's brilliance goes way beyond what a mere Spotify playlist can hold, especially when the 2002 reunion with Howard Devoto as Shelleydevoto, as well as great covers like Anti-Flag's take on Ever Fallen In Love, Gorilla Biscuits' A Different Kind Of Tension and Alice Donut's version of E.S.P. are not available on the platform.

Still, here is a brief example of the impact Pete Shelley and the Buzzcocks have had on music since the mid-seventies, when that notorious Sex Pistols gig occurred and drove everybody in the audience to go on and form bands of their own.

02. Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine - Everybody's Happy Nowadays
03. Orange Juice - Rip It Up
04. The Offspring - Autonomy
05. Penetration - Nostalgia
06. Momus - Orgasm Addict
07. Heaven 17 - Are Everything
