414 Buzzcocks - Another Music in a Different Kitchen
26:57In March of 1978 The Buzzcocks release their first studio album. It features neither the single Orgasm Addict nor What Do I Get on account of the misguided British punk ethos "if a person buys the single and the record and the single is on there, they will feel like they've been ripped off". That's great for 1978, not so much for crate digging in the 21st century. Those physical media quibbles aside, it is a master class in popcraft. Let's talk The Buzzcocks, Another Music in a Different Kitchen!

407 Public Image Limited - Public Image Limited
23:37In December of 1978, Public Image Limited released their 1st studio recording. The record is a mess. Brimming with the lyrical stylings of a young man desperate to show he’s got serious things to say, but delivered with the obnoxious air of one who just couldn’t be bothered. It is a juvenile master class in self-importance, masquerading as a grand statement. These are not songs. This is not an album. But goodness gracious, that guitar tone and bass work is setting a pretty table for the future of rock music. Let’s talk PiL, First Issue!
