Pete Shelley ‘Homosapien’

I don’t know how many people watched Buzzcocks on Top Of The Pops, and thought ‘that Pete Shelley, he’s a bit camp’, or ever wondered if Ever Fallen In Love With Someone (You Shouldn’t Have Fallen In Love With) was not sung by a man to woman, but by a man to a man, but surely when this fantastic single was released in 1981 the penny must have dropped on punks and post-punks everywhere. ‘I’m a cruiser, you’re a loser’… ‘Homo-superior, in my interior’ and so on. Brave stuff for the early 80s I’m guessing. Great song. This one’s for RM.
