This band and certainly this album get short shrift around these parts. What a great, angular, spiky, art rock album Real Life (1978) is from British post-punk outfit Magazine. Howard Devoto, ex-Buzzcocks on vocals. Pete Shelley has a couple of co-writes on here and the whole thing still sounds fresh and current. Barry Adamson (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds) on bass, produced by John Leckie (XTC, Simple Minds, Human League, The Fall, Stone Roses etc etc) and John McGeoch on guitar (Siouxsie, Visage, PiL). This album is highly recommended for anyone potentially into this genre. Get hold of this rewarding, influential and somewhat forgotten classic.
