Enduringly credible, Magazine have always been the connoisseur's choice and frequently name checked by some of the most gifted musicians of recent years including Radiohead, Morrissey, Jarvis Cocker & U2.Magazine's front man, Howard Devoto co-formed Buzzcocks with Pete Shelley after the pair had seen The Sex Pistols in early 1976 and promoted the now legendary Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall gigs. Devoto left in 1977, after the seminal 'Spiral Scratch' EP had been released, and created Magazine. Their first record was the post-Punk anthem 'Shot By Both Sides'. Four ground breaking albums later and the band had parted company, leaving behind an influential body of work which was re-mastered & released by Virgin EMI in 2008.In February 2009 Magazine reformed to play a handful of concerts across the UK. It is the first time Magazine had played live together since 1980. The 'Real Life Thereafter' shows quickly sold out and received widespread critical acclaim.In summer 2009, Magazine played 'The Soap Show: Episode 2009' at the Royal Festival Hall and Manchester Bridgewater Hall. They also played selected European festivals including Benicassim and Latitude. The band rounded off the year's activities with appearances on BBC TV's 'Later? with Jools Holland', 'The BBC Electric Proms' and released a live DVD/CD entitled 'Real Life Thereafter: Live at Manchester Academy 17.02.09'.2011 sees Magazine return to the studio with an album and tour expected in the autumn.
