Tick Tock

Hope you all had a great Christmas and looking forward to another year. My Fiance Cheryl bought me this fabulous Magazine 'Shot by both Sides' clock as part of my Christmas Pressie's and which we'd seen for sale on one of the stalls at the Manchester Markets pre-Christmas.    It will now take pride of place in my office in the new year.

Merry Christmas "Feed the Enemy" fans.

Wishing all you Big Dummies a fantastic Christmas and all the very best for the New Year. Thank you all for supporting this blog and helping me to celebrate all things related to these fabulous artistes. I predict 2014 will see something from Howard and the band and if not well, that's our loss and theirs.

Magazine - Wonderlust Glasgow Tiffany's 29 April 1980

The previous Wonderlust (soundboard) CD unfortunately, on playing, sounded like Howard was singing through mud and I think the original tape source that the show was taken from was damaged sadly as it sounded like a great gig. This version in the same cover is from the fabulous Live show they did at Glasgow Tiffanys in Scotland 29th April 1980.

Sweetheart Contract - Australian Tour 1980

Another cracking scan from his collection - Thank You to Rockin Robin Tate for this great Australian Tour 7".

More Magazine Goodies from Rockin Robin Tate's collection

German PS and Australian 7" without P/S   This is the Japanese Promo Copy  My thanks to Rockin Robin Tate who has kindly allowed me to share some of his Magazine and Devoto related collection including these two items.  I have to say it's really good that other fans of the band are keen to share with other fans their items in this way. Many collectibles remain safely stored and archived away and with the disappearance of record stores and collectors shops etc. many of these might never be seen by especially the newer collectors and fans of all things Howard Devoto etc.   The Internet has been a godsend in that respect. If you have any items or images that you'd like to share then please, by all means send them to me and a brief description of what they are and I'll share what I can on the blog. Many thanks again to Robin.

Magazine Autographs from 1978

Full Set of Magazine Autographs from 1978 I have just shown the most remarkable restraint by not bidding on a full set of genuine Magazine autographs from Liverpool Eric’s in 1978. Finally sold for £42 on eBay. The guy selling them provided the following information.  "From 1978, these autographs were signed at a Liverpool Eric's, on the Shot By Both Sides tour. Featuring an autograph by the late, great John McGeogh, along with Howard Devoto, Barry Adamson and Dave Formula as well as Magazine's 2nd drummer Paul Spencer.  I got the band to sign this paper and the autographs have been in my possession and well looked after ever since."
