Pete Shelley - Homosapien - 1981
Regardless, the first time I heard the song Homosapien, the Simple Minds were singing it on their cover album in the oughts. I liked it a lot, and did my due diligence to learn who originally did it. And, so I found Pete Shelley from the Buzzcocks for the first time.
I knew of the Buzzcocks and had two Singles albums by them, and I thought they were pretty good. I do think that Shelley by himself, though, really expanded, matured and grew his sound and style to something more than Punk and more than New Wave.
All in all, it's a pretty good album with some great tracks. Here's the album, the mixes and the b-sides.
Now, I'm off to the recliner and the remote control and the TV. I'm done with today....
