Well, since no one else has bothered to do this tour, I guess it must be down to me.

'Welcome to Magazine v6.0 SP1. Thank you for upgrading...'

It would seem that Magazine's novelty factor has worn off, this was only about half full - you could even get to the bar with ease...

You won't hear me say this very often, but I really wish they'd played MORE off the new record, they really caught fire on the four songs they showcased.

I had to slightly edit (where possible) the idiot 12 feet behind me who kept shouting 'Devo' and 'Are we not men?' and (most bizarrely) 'Talking Heads'. Must've been visiting from 1978... git. He's still in evidence during Parade though... right lyrics, wrong position in song. Shouldn't spoil your enjoyment too much, as the worst has been excised.

As always, share and enjoy!



  1. Well, craigie*, it does look like it's been up to you, and we're all the more grateful for your and tarquin's work - unique recordings, which if you hadn't bothered, we couldn't enjoy, for which a big tip o'tha hat, and in thanks, find all the Magazine unofficial recordings I could here:

    Ta muchly! Dave Sez.

  2. And it's a real cracker of a recording too, no EQing necessary! Wa-hay! Cheers, Dave Sez.

  3. Hi,
