Mirror Badge and Thank You 7"

Just purchased some more Magazine items from the USA and UK - My collection is beginning to build up again. I just wish I'd never ever sold my original collection all those years ago.

Buzzcocks - Howard Devoto

I recently bought a number of items from Australia, USA and the UK as I've started re-building my collection.  All I collect is anything related to the Howard Devoto period and was lucky enough to find a really great bloke called Kez who sold me some of his items, mainly re releases of Spiral Scratch.  I've not had time to photograph them yet but I will and will upload it all here once done.

For now here's a taster.

1. Buzzcocks, New Hormones photocopied promotional pamphlet for the reissue of the Spiral Scratch E.P. signed by Howard, Steve Garvey and Pete Shelley.

2. And here's the W/Label promo for the 12" Spiral Scratch release along with the promo copy rear cover for the 7" e.p. and underneath it all is the Time Up Bootleg.  I have another two of these different labels I think.

Magazine - Howard Devoto - Australian TV Interview 1980

Magazine - Festival Hall

Bruce Butler posted on the Magazine Facebook page, the following image of the badge and his comments which I've included below and have posted, separately the TV interview Howard gave.

The Festival Hall concert was a double bill with XTC and Magazine supported by local bands Models and Flowers (later Icehouse). I know both XTC and Magazine's entire sets were filmed and recorded. The XTC set has done the rounds as a bootleg but I've never seen the entire Magazine set, only the five tracks released on the 'Nightmoves' DVD. When the 'Play. +' CD was released and I heard it was to be two discs I had hoped the second disc would be the DVD of the same show. A shame and a missed opportunity that it wasn't. Maybe Magazine can give us an idea if the video will ever see the light of day. Meanwhile, here is the promotional badge for this event. There were also sweat-shirts, one of which is being worn by John Peters in the above interview.
