Magazine - Real Life

One of the first (and best) post-punk albums ever by Howard Devoto's Magazine, which he formed after he left The Buzzcocks. It's full of classics from top to bottom with songs such as "Shot by Both Sides" and "Definitive Gaze" which you've probably heard somewhere without even knowing it. Magazine aren't the gloomy Joy Division-esque post-punk or the dancy PIL/Gang of Four post punk, they remind me more of Roxy Music with a certain theatrical grandeur(at times), catchy piano/synth riffs and vocal melodies.

  1. What probably makes Howard Devoto special is that he is already on the next thing while he laying down his current thing...
