PETE SHELLEY

Hello and welcome back....Pete Shelley (aka Peter Campbell McNeish) was best known as a singer & guitarist in the 70s punk band "The Buzzcocks".
I first heard Pete Shelley on a compilation album called 1982 With A Bullet, with the song "Homosapien"... Moving away from guitar orientated sounds and replacing them with a synthesizer.
The BBC banded the song "Homosapien" due to the references to gay sex.
The song "Telephone Operator" is a personal favorite of mine, I love the raw sounding synths, Its an excellent song.
Enjoy
