Buzzcocks

The expanded 2CD reissues of the Buzzcocks’ first three albums — Another Music in a Different Kitchen (1978), Love Bites (1978) and A Different Kind of Tension (1979) — that were released in the U.K. in 2008 will make a belated American appearance next month courtesy of Mute Records.

Due out Feb. 9, the three sets will include remastered editions of the original albums, plus a huge helping of more than 30 previously unreleased cuts, including John Peel sessions, associated singles, live tracks and demos (see full tracklists below). The reissues previously had been available only as imports since their original release in October 2008.

The Buzzcocks — still featuring original members Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle — also plan to continue their ongoing Another Bites Tour, featuring full-album performances of Another Music in a Different Kitchen and Love Bites, in 2010. So far, the band has booked a few shows in Italy and the U.K. in January and February, have have a lone U.S. appearance slated for Feb. 20 at the Musink Tattoo Convention & Music Festival in Costa Mesa, Calif., alongside The Cult and The Damned.
