This spectacular CD reunites two of the original members of seminal punk band, The Buzzcocks, singer Howard Devoto and guitarist Pete Shelley. The results show a maturity that is definitely not punk, but the logical progression from those musical roots. The music is richly textured and powerful alt rock driven by Shelley's distinctive guitar sound and Devoto's oddly compelling and charismatic vocals. Pete Shelley has always been active since to 70's, but it's a joy to hear Devoto return so powerfully after a long absence when Luxuria collapsed in 1990. This is a great partnership that I hope has some legs. Now, if only some label would release a CD version of "Jerky Versions of the Dream", there would be many happy buyers.
