The Buzzcocks had a few hit records behind them, but the last two didn't do especially well and the general consensus was that they were yesterday's news. The album they were touring had not fared well and was met with a decidedly mixed reaction. Whereas a scant two years earlier they had been the snotty upstarts, now Joy Division were.
