The John Robb Tapes | Pete Shelley

'The John Robb Tapes' is a new series which unearths the incredible archive of old interviews that music journalist John Robb has amassed over the years. Episode 6 is an interview with Pete Shelley. The late and great Pete Shelley was not only one of the great songwriters of his generation but also a cultural game changer. His band, Buzzcocks, took punk out of London and gave it to Manchester & the rest of the world, creating a DIY ethic crucial to the times. In this in-depth interview, Pete Shelley explains just how he did this. Artwork by Plastic Crimewave Produced by Andrew Paine
