Magazine - Definitive Daze - Demos and Live 1977

From a recently circulated package of Magazine early demos and live tracks. The following words are from the original sharer who unleashed these rarities...
"What can I say? This band were phenomenal, and these early recordings were given to me by Martin Jackson (bless you for that, Martin), who I was friendly with for a number of years through to his Swing Out Sister days. He then relocated and went onto other things. Oh, how we used to laugh...Anyway, The demos are just that, a raw but controlled run through of material that ended up on their first classic album, Real Life.
The live tracks were recorded at the club in Manchester that was the home of most of the early punk activity. The recording was made with a view to having one track included on the 10" vinyl album 'Short Circuit:Live At The Electric Circus' but for one reason or another none of the tracks made it. For those of you who may not remember the album culled tracks by The Fall, Joy Division when they were know as Warsaw, Buzzcocks, the brilliant John Coope Clarke, Steel Pulse and The Drones recorded over the final weekend that the club was open. I am a little dubious of the date of the recording as on the tape Martin gave me it was clearly written that it was 2nd Nov 1977. But I have seen reference to the album that states that it was October. Anyone with definite confirmation of which is correct please let me know. I believe it to be the November gig as Magazine played their first gig in October (28th I think) and their Electric Circus gig was definitely after that."

Magazine Melkweg, Amsterdam 8th June 1980

In my last 20 from '80 post I mentioned in passing Magazine. This band certainly had their moments of brilliance. With their 1978 debut album 'Real Life', Howard Devoto and Co. turned punk on its head by delivering up something that teetered on the brink of progressive rock! For sure in the shape of Barry Adamson and John McGeough they had two musicians of musical ability that was not far removed from the prog musicians that punk had swept aside in '76/'77.

Here's a short, but good quality radio broadcast from Amsterdam in the summer of 1980.

Magazine - 20091022 - Roundhouse, Camden Town, London

I was ripping this for myself, and figured it was so good it had to be shared.

From London's Camden Town Roundhouse, this blistering Magazine set was broadcast as part of the BBC's Electric Proms festival.

And boy were they hot.
I don't think I've heard so much energy from a reformed band as apparent on this recording.
The songs sound alive and fresh; delivered with style and vitality; no evidence here of a band merely going through the motions.

The set list is perfect. A collection of A and B sides.
Beginning with the dynamic 'Shot By Both Sides' and ending perfectly with 'I Love You, You Big Dummy', a song they colonize so expertly, it's easy to forget that it was conceived by someone else; and that's saying something about a Beefheart cover.

Devoto is on top form too.
He does ham it up a little for the first few numbers, but as the band settles, Howard loosens up, actually sounding like he's having a good time: enjoying every minute in fact.

After such a blinding set as this, the big question is: what now?
New material? An album?

Norman Fischer-Jones (Noko) has been recruited in to fill the empty space left by the late John McGeoch; during this set he totally justified that choice; and I'm not sure that Jonny Greenwood - often mentioned as a potential collaborator with Magazine - would have made a better job.

But for me, apart from the band's startling sonic effects, it was always Barry Adamson's bass playing that made their sound. And he certainly hasn't lost his touch; playing this set with great gusto and real energy.

I enjoyed this a lot.
I can't recommend it enough.

Thanx for the kind words guys.

It's all about passing it on. The 'bootleg community' is sharing.
Humanity is sharing. Greed is evil.

All hail the original poster! :77:
(heh, maybe that will become a religion in a thousand years? Church of the Original Poster?)

Thanks, great post.
Saw them live in Paris in May 79.
The Toronto 1980 show is just amazing. Superb sound quality. "Because You're Frightened" is a killer.
Paris Theatre 22 11 1978 appears as one continued Ogg track. Beside that, great quality as well.
