Manchester legends Buzzcocks bring their Another Bites Tour to the region this week, with dates in Norwich and Cambridge.

The gigs will see Buzzcocks perform their first two classic albums Another Music in a Different Kitchen and Love Bites in their entirety plus other hits.

Buzzcocks' first album, Another Music in a Different Kitchen, was released in 1978 and is full of fire, wit, speed and philosophical lyrics, as well as the sly psychedelia that always made them stand out from the pack.

Love Bites was also released in 1978, and an extraordinary year for the group.

As well as the albums, the released five singles - all of them hits, with two in the top 20 - and toured relentlessly.

One of those singles, Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've?) is now acknowledged as a pop classic.
