The Buzz Club: The Mighty Lemon Drops to The Stone Roses


(This photo is of loads of the live recordings of various Buzz Clubs by Dave Driscoll. I’ll include them as I write about the relevant gig)

From 1985 until 1993 myself and Danny Hagan put bands on in Surrey and Hampshire (and once in London) as The Buzz Club. Over the years we put on The Stone Roses, Primal Scream, Blur, The Happy Mondays, Suede, Elastica, The Charlatans, Cornershop, Shed 7, Dodgy, Spiritualized and in the early days, lots of the C-86 bands.

Buzz Club playlist. Every band I could find on Spotify in the order they appeared at the Buzz Club. 

I’ll document all the fliers, posters, live recordings and memories I have here. The Buzz Club lasted 7 years, mainly from The West End Centre in Aldershot. It’s taken me over 10 years to gather what I have so far…who knows, maybe more stuff will get sent to me and I’ll keep going! Please do get in touch if you went to any of these Buzz Club gigs, I’d love to hear from you.
