Leyton Buzzards - BBC In Concert 1979

Leyton Buzzards were from London and existed from 1977 to 1980. In that time they released 5 singles and an LP besides recording four John Peel Sessions. The first single 19 & Mad is a favorite of mine for its raw sound and teen anthem appeal. The rest of their output is soft in comparison but still enjoyable to listen to. This BBC live show features much rawer versions of songs from their album. This is a radio broadcast and the quality is excellent.
