The Buzzcocks staged the first of two ‘Back to Front’ concerts last night, performing music from three different eras of the group’s history with three different lineups — including a closing set that saw the return of original frontman Howard Devoto, who hadn’t appeared with the band in more than 33 years.
More than 30 years after leaving the band he co-founded, original frontman Howard Devoto will rejoin the Buzzcocks for part of the punk legends’ two ‘Back to Front’ concerts in Manchester and London next May, shows that will feature three different lineups of the band performing music from their respective eras.
Magazine — the post-punk act that Howard Devoto formed in 1977 after leaving the Buzzcocks — is poised to this week release ‘No Thyself,’ the band’s fifth studio album and first in 30 years, before embarking on a short U.K. tour this November.
