Steve Diggle - Demos 1-27-81

Here are some demo songs recorded by Steve Diggle in his home studio one month before the Buzzcocks split up in 1981. These songs feature guitar, drum machine and some vocals. None of the songs are finished and only the songs Drift Away and In The Back were ever re-recorded (with a line up of Diggle/Garvey/Maher) and released (on a Flag Of Convenience album). These recordings provide insight into the songwriting process and also gets one wondering what a fourth Buzzcocks album might have sounded like in 1981 had they continued at that time.

track list: [from cassette tape]
01. Can You Dig It
02. Drift Away
03. In The Back
03. Dancing At Dawn
04. By My Side
05. Don't Come Back


  1. Hope you didn't forget this one. We are anxiously waiting for this one and the Manchester 1980 recording. Thank you in advance.

  2. I haven't forgotten about this one or the other one. Just been very busy lately and haven't had time to get to it.
