Pete Shelley (born Peter Campbell McNeish; 17 April 1955 – 6 December 2018) was an English singer, songwriter and guitarist. He formed early punk band Buzzcocks with Howard Devoto in 1976, and was the lead singer and guitarist from 1977 when Devoto left, releasing "Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've)" in 1978. The band broke up in 1981, reforming in 1989.

Only 4 left in stock (more on the way). Originally intended as demos for the 4th Buzzcocks studio album, Shelley and producer Martin Rushent (hot off the heals of his work on the Human League's "Dare" album) holed up in Genetic Studios working on new material and overhauling some of Shelley's pre-Buzzcocks songs. Happy with their results, Shelley announced his departure from his legendary punk outfit and released this electronic pop masterpiece. Pete Shelley sheds his punk image in favor of a nu-wave look and sound that was quite a departure from what he was doing with the Buzzcocks.

Continued singles success came with Promises (20), Everybody’s Happy Nowadays (29) and Harmony in My Head (32). However, growing tensions in the band coupled with friction with EMI, which had purchased United Artists, prompted Shelley to break up Buzzcocks in 1981. He was born Peter McNeish in Leigh, Lancashire.

Pete Shelley’s solo career came completely out the blue and faded just as fast. It’s now seen as little more than a subplot in the Buzzcocks story, but Shelley’s two solo albums were revealing, entertaining and in some ways pioneering, embracing gay pride, computer technology and electropop with real enthusiasm. It was followed by 1983’s chunkier XL1, which added guitar and further layers of ’80s synth-pop production. Disco Pete and Rushent also recorded several longer mixes, dub medleys and B-sides, which appear on the third LP.

Pete Shelley is an English singer, songwriter and guitarist, best known as the leader of Buzzcocks. When Devoto left the group shortly afterwards, Shelley took over as lead vocalist and chief songwriter.
