Reviews & Opinions

JULIAN COPE, HEAD HERITAGE: 'Time's Up' is, in the humble opinion of your writer, not only the best record ever to bear the Buzzcocks' name, it is the most authentic, shambolic and thrilling LP of the entire first wave of punk and, just possibly, the finest unofficial album ever released by anybody, ever. What makes 'Time's Up' so great... is not just the quality and delivery of its songs, but the overall sound and feel of a great PUNK band at its primal best going all out for thrills and fun. At no point in the subsequent careers of any of its protagonists was this primitive edge and vibrancy ever in such evidence, and it pains me to admit that many of the qualities of the Buzzcocks' official output - even 'Another Music' - pass me by thirty years on. Those slickly-engineered records have dated badly, but this sulphate-ridden gem still shines on in its cheap and glorious way. This is 1976 in a bottle: ragged and real punk rock at its most mesmerising and original, and - than than anything else - the Buzzcocks at their early peak.
