Reviews & Opinions

DEANNE PEARSON, SMASH HITS, SEPT 4 - 17, 1980: The Buzzcocks choose to do away with A and B sides altogether. 'Are Everything' couples tight rhythmic coils of standard rock with abrasive vocals and no hookline, while 'Chainstore' is attacked with more positivism and purposeness. Again it's tight and solid, and vaguely stirring, but nothing to get too hot under the collar about.

Additional Notes

Part 1 of a series of singles issued late 1980. This is a double A-Side: 'Are Everything' is denoted by a "triangle" symbol, 'Why She's' by a "square" symbol. The UK covers come in two varieties, one with 'Are Everything' as the "front" side, and a reversed one with 'Why She's' as the front side.
