what happened next
Buzzcocks split in 1981 which Shelley and Diggle pursuing solo careers. They have since reformed, initially with the above line up but now the core duo of Shelley and Diggle remain. John Maher runs a Volkswagen racing team.

They helped open friars phase four in 2010.

The classic lineup reunited in 2012 for a couple of gigs

Ludus lasted till 1984.

odds and trivia
Did you know the band got it's name from a review of seminal 1976 TV show Rock Follies? The review, in reference to Julie Covington's streetwise character, headlined its' review, "It's a buzz, cock"

Ludus' Linder Sterling was an artist/designer involved in early Buzzcocks/Magazine covers.
