A Different Kind Of Tension, Buzzcocks’ third studio album, and their last to feature the line-up of Pete Shelley (vocals / guitar), Steve Diggle (guitar / vocals), Steve Garvey (bass) and John Maher (drums), was recorded at Eden Studio in West London in the summer of 1979 with producer Martin Rushent, who had worked on their previous two albums.
Singles Going Steady was initially released on September 25th, 1979 on I.R.S. Records - a U.S. only release put together as an introduction to the band for the American public, side one featured their eight United Artists U.K. singles releases to date in chronological order, while side two featured the corresponding B-sides. The compilation perfectly captured the band’s effortless ability to write three-minute-mini-masterpieces.
