      I am tempted to re-purchase The Correct Use of Soap, one of my
      favorite records ever.


      Magazine Reissue Studio LPs
      Plenty of people know the Buzzcocks, Public Image Ltd., and Siouxsie
      and the Banshees, but Magazine is one of a large number of post-punk
      bands that have slipped between the cracks of history, despite
      boasting members from each of those three bands.

      Magazine songwriter and frontman Howard Devoto left the Buzzcocks in
      1977 to form the kind of band that would cover both Sly and the Family
      Stone and Captain Beefheart. Over the course of their four studio
      albums in as many years as a band, Magazine explored a weird, indirect
      kind of pop music, and they worked with producers Martin Hannett (Joy
      Division) and John Leckie (the Stone Roses) in the process.

      On April 24, Virgin Records will reissue the band's four albums, Real
      Life (1978), Secondhand Daylight (1979), The Correct Use of Soap
      (1980), and Magic, Murder and the Weather (1981).

      All four of the reissues come digitally remastered and expanded with
      bonus tracks, with the aforementioned Beefheart cover ("I Love You,
      You Big Dummy") featured on Secondhand Daylight. Together, these
      reissues form the band's complete recordings, a Magazine encyclopedia
      of sorts.
