I still can't believe it! One of my dreams came true: yesterday i saw Buzzcocks live!!!

They were playing at "Rock in Idro" festival in Milano, together with The Damned, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, The Toasters, The Bouncing Souls, Gogol Bordello, Eagles of Death Metal, and other bands that i don't like.

Buzzcocks played (only) for 40 minutes (more or less) on main stage, but at a stupid time (4:30 pm). Only few people were there to see them, maybe 1000 or less. And nobody knews all their songs. This seems ridicolous to me, but it's usual with stupid italians.
I was in first line, so i could enjoy everything. I'm trying to remember which song they played (random):
Flat-Pack Philosophy
Sell You Everything
Orgasm Addict
What Do I Get?
Love You More
Promises
Harmony In My Head
Noise Annoys
Fast Cars
I Don't Mind
Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've)? (or just Ever Fallen in Love?)
I Don't Know What To Do With My Life

They didn't played Lipstick, which is maybe my favourite song for some reason.
They played without breaks, Pete was great, Steve was amazing, a real rocker! And I think now it's hard to find musicians playing their music having fun on stage, being so enthusiastic after 30 years of shows, but Buzzcocks did it. They're just great. A lot of people should learn from them.

At the end of the show i met Danny, the drummer, watching Gogol Bordello's show, I talk a little bit with him, he was so nice!! And I asked him a picture. Oh! I'm so happy!!! I fell like i'm Sixteen Again

    thanks for the pics...wow! the Buzzcocks and The Stooges at one fest, that's fantastic. don't worry, it's not just Italians, i'm sure most americans wouldn't know the Buzzcocks songs if they were playing in front of them either. it's too bad because they are one of the classic bands.

    That's pretty cool. I don't think they tour around the pacific coast of the US unfortunately but I guess I'm gonna have to make my way across the Atlantic to hear the Buzzcocks. But hey, tomauto, we *or atleast the ones interested in good music* can recognize a buzzcocks song a mile away. It's all good looks though, no worries.
