  • Wish I Never Loved You
Single title: Wish I Never Loved You
Artist: Buzzcocks
Label: Cooking Vinyl
After the recent all-star cover version of Ever Fallen In Love?, in a misguided tribute to John Peel, I bet you thought the Buzzcocks' legacy couldn't be brutalised any further. Well you're wrong, 'cos here are the 'Cocks themselves, now middle-aged and balding, determined to diminish their own legend by a few notches more. At their age shouldn't they be singing about something other than misplaced love? If any career is to have longevity it has to develop and mature, and by stubbornly sticking to a tired formula the Buzzcocks have only highlighted their own irrelevance. [Milo McLaughlin]
