Spiral Scratch is an EP and the debut release by English punk rock band Buzzcocks. It was released on 29 January 1977. It is one of the earliest releases by a British punk band (preceded by The Damned's "New Rose" in October 1976, and both the Sex Pistols' "Anarchy in the . and the first two singles by The Vibrators in November 1976).

Spiral Scratch's hand-pressed, blurry black-and-white sleeve housed four tracks - each one a uniquely compelling experience, marrying raw, youthful zest with belligerent intelligence. The EP's release achieved several things at once. It opened up the independent scene, making . labels the natural springboard for aspiring musicians.

While it does sound pretty standard alongside the many similar albums that followed its release, Spiral Scratch really is timeless in its delivery. In typical 70’s punk format, the songs are fast, fun, and undoubtedly catchy, focusing on giving the listener a dose of quick and easy entertainment as opposed to lengthy, embellished soundscapes.

Buzzcocks’ first line-up split before they could record an album (Buzzcocks II became Top Of The Pops regulars, Devoto formed the equally influential Magazine), but they recorded the first truly independent 45, the Spiral Scratch EP, and a series of demos, some of which would be polished to a silver sheen on the superb Another Music In A Different Kitchen. Time’s Up remains a largely very good collection.

Notes

This is the original 1977 New Hormones release with the following specifics:
• No “With HOWARD DEVOTO” under the band name on the front cover
• The label address is printed at the bottom of the back cover
• The record itself has a moulded plastic label
• Most of the information is stamped into the runout area (as opposed to inscribed)

The label reissued the record in 1979 with different characteristics than above and a slightly simpler label design (see entry here).

All recorded 'live' at Indigo Sound Studio in Manchester, England. Dec 28 1976 on 16 track.
