S helley’s first legitimate post-Buzzcocks salvo was surprisingly soft club music that featured pumping synths, strummed guitars and Shelley’s earnest if underwhelming voice. Edgy stuff at the time more for the implied subject matter than the music behind it. Although I never warmed to the idea of a Petey Shiney Synthi Shelley, it’s not the radical departure it seems on the surface. Strip away the synthesizers, speed things up a little and you’ve got the makings of another buzzsaw Buzzcocks classic. The B side’s even better (“Guess I Must Have Been In Love With Myself,” a Buzzcocks title if ever there was). As for the lyrical meaning behind “Homosapiens,” you’ll find the answer (maybe) in Mick Sinclair’s 1982 interview with Mr. Shelley.
