Format: Audio CD
The first page of the C/Z Records flyer that came with this CD states "That's what makes us special...we have no pride." Apparently the company has no shame either, as they chose to fill out what could have been a very nice tribute compilation with several god-awful tracks by unknown and never-heard-from-again bands from the C/Z stable. It seems likely that these bands weren't even Buzzcocks fans as they chose the most obvious numbers. "Orgasm Addict" and "Why Can't I Touch It" are especially heinous and virtually unlistenable.

That's not to say there isn't much to like on this disc. Most of the bands are quite good and will be recognizable to those familiar with underground music of the late 80's. Naked Raygun, Didjits, Big Drill Car, Coffin Break, and The Fluid all contribute worthy efforts. They tend to stick fairly close to the source material, while adding a bit of thrust. Raygun fans will be especially pleased as they have contributed two tracks, not surprising since they are well-known to be Buzzcocks lovers.

The only track that truly surpasses the Buzzcocks original is done by the incredible New York acid punk band Alice Donut. Their crazed version of "E.S.P." is quite trippy and balls-out rockin' at the same time. This song alone is worth the bargain-basement price of this CD, in my opinion. Lunachicks also chose to play around a bit, cutting into their version of "Noise Annoys" with a chunk of "Promises" for a blast of riotous fun that I really liked.

Despite a few throwaway tracks, Something's Gone Wrong Again is a worthwhile addition to the libraries of Buzzcocks fans and 80's/90's punk fans alike. Buy it, rip it, and toss the junk in your recycle bin.

The other review here is well written, and they are definently entitled to thier opinion, but I whole heartly disagree. First off, I like tribute albums, they all might not be all good, but they do make you hear a song, in which you're familiar with, in a totally new light. This tribute not only does that, but it does what it ultimately is supposed to do, be entertaining & fun! It takes some of the best "unknown" artists from the 90's and turns them loose on a catalog that you can do no wrong with. Let's be real, you can't top the original, with the Buzzocks, or the Clash for that matter, but you can rock it & pay tribute to your heroes. If you're a fan of the Buzzcocks, then you're a fan of any one of the bands on here. For Christ's sake look at the price...click it and rock out!

I love a great cover or tribute album. The essence of one is when the bands can either cover the original song in a way that offers a new take on the song or that covers it in a way that it's almost like an outtake by the original band, a good outtake.

There's the rare case when a cover is actually better than the original as in a CLASH tribute CD where a band does Death or Glory really well with gusto and upon hearing the original one can see its one of the few CLASH songs that's a bit flat.

There's no such song here. I'd say the BUZZCOCKS do every song better then these guys do here. Some are pretty good covers, DOSE especially I think captured the general BUZZCOCKS sound well. As with the CLASH when a band does like a punk or, actually, a sorta hardcore punk version of one of their songs its not all that good because the BUZZCOCKS (and the CLASH for that matter) aren't hardcore bands and the essence of their artistry sorta gets plowed away when done that way.

What this CD shows me is that I really like the BUZZCOCKS' vocalist's sound. No one really measures up to his distinct sound. The best covers here sound more faithful to the original although none of them are simply duplications of the originals.

I wouldn't rush out and buy this. I may never listen to this again actually. I think I'd explore more BUZZCOCKS albums rather than listen to particularly to this or make like a best of version of this using say 5 of the best songs as a sort of ep. chrisbct@hotmail.com

So very mid nineties. If you love The Buzzcocks this is an opportunity to finally own some so-so covers of their songs.
