  • Punk Rock Pioneer Pete Shelley, Buzzcocks Singer, Dead At 63

The singer's brother later confirmed on his Facebook page that Pete had died after suffering a heart attack. Shelley, who had been involved with gay politics at college, remarked of his sexuality that. Like their contemporaries, the Buzzcocks scorned what they considered the pretensions and bloated style of mainstream groups and turned out brief, stripped down songs, performed at manic speed.

"Someone in the office just said 'Weren't The Buzzcocks just a one-hit wonder?' and there's almost been a fight", wrote the BBC's Jeremy Vine. I listened to Singles and tension as much as any records I've owned. "R.I.P. Pete Shelley". "You will be missed".

"Pete Shelley wrote flawless three minute pop songs", added The Charlatans singer Tim Burgess.

But where the Sex Pistols had an angry, political edge, Buzzcocks were cheekier, with polished three-minute songs about teenage romance like 16 Again that featured strong melodies and harmonies. "You'll be missed Pete but you'll be remembered for a long long time for your brilliant music".

Since news of Shelley's passing was announced, tributes have flooded in on social media, including from author Neil Gaiman, who tweeted: "Part of my youth dies with him". To that end, the Buzzcock sound was defined by Shelley's adenoidal love-and-sex-obsessed sneer, which was often wielded in service of a vaguely aloof, sometimes paranoiac satire of that everyday type of life.

Ginger Wildheart adds: "So sad to hear about Pete Shelley".

Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright said Shelley was a "huge talent".

He formed Buzzcocks in 1975 with fellow Bolton Institute student Howard Devoto, united by a love of the Velvet Underground.
