The Buzzcocks in Coventry

Pete Clemons with his latest article for the Coventry Telegraph. They recently played the Godiva Festival and back in the 70's they played Mr Georges with Neil O'Connor's punk band - The Flys who continued to tour with them after that. I saw the Buzzcocks gig at Tiffany's with Penetration c 1978.
