In from the bullpen comes Dave Sez with a Magazine Mega-Post!

So, yes, really, I AM about sick of Hendrix.....I think I have another week or so of stuff for that, whether I post daily while on vacation next week depends upon various factors (whether or not I feel like it, etc).....anyways, a bit of reprieve from ol' James Marshall this evening, as longtime friend and contributor Dave Sez provides us with this huge Magazine Mega Post, which even includes a bunch of video clips (I haven't seen them yet).....I'll be brief and let Dave Sez run the show, he has written texts, included artwork, etc, (he's more together than myself, but then again, GG Alin likely was as well).......

I thought Magazine were a fine pop/power-punk band with Buzzcocks roots and ties (Howard Devoto), best known, of course, for the single "Shot By Both Sides", but also lottsa other great stuff as you shall see if you are unfamilair........so, I will be quiet and let Dave Sez run the show, back tomorrow with YAY more HENDRIX!!!

A 'What's On' special featuring the Buzzcocks and Magazine, broadcast on Granada TV on July 27th, 1978 and presented by Tony Wilson. This copy appears to be taken directly from the production master, complete with slates. I've created a DVD out of it using TMPGEnc. Here are the technical data as reported by G-Spot: Audio: 48000Hz, 256 kb/s, stereo (2/0), Video: 704x576, 25fps (4:3) PAL. The programme lasts nearly 40 minutes and consists mainly of Tony Wilson interviewing Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto, but there is also live footage of both bands shot at the Lesser Free Trade Hall in Manchester on July 21st, 1978.

An alternative partial source allegedly including Shot By Both Sides can be found here, but the mega link seems not to work: Audio (different source, 66MB): http://noiseaddiction2.blogspot.com/2012/12/magazine-metropol-berlin-10-30-80.html.
Right, that should keep you busy (and make you happy) - go and thank the original posters and keep an eye out on the comments section below for anything else I can find. Part 2 of the megapost covering the Magazine reformation in 2009 will follow. Cheers for now, Dave Sez.
