Ramones.

Kings of the 2-minute and under weight-division, the Ramones pack quite the copious wallop of mordant lyrics into their creations. And Joey Ramone leaves no doubt in these masterful performances of his total command of the vocal art. Remarkably inventive, powerful, sublime.

The Buzzcocks, and Pete Shelley.

The Buzzcocks, founded in 1976 by Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto {who departed to pastures new in ’77}, are one of the preeminent punk bands to emerge from the UK. Extremely lyrical as well as hard-edged, they strung together many brilliant tunes, due mainly to the genius of composer and lead vocalist Shelley. Included here are a few from Pete’s solo career, as well as some particularly rewarding live group efforts.

Your ELO, and Maestro Jeff Lynne.

Steppin’ Out.
The Way Life’s Meant To Be.
From the End of the World.

The stunning talents of Jeff Lynne. Quite something. Few are his peers. The braintrust of Electric Light Orchestra, Lynne composed, arranged, and produced nearly all of the band’s material, while also contributing lead vocals and multi-instrumentalism. A musical polymath, and an immensely gifted artist.
