Magazine – The Correct Use of Soap (1980)

The Correct Use of Soap

I picked up a re-issue of the band Magazine’s album “The Correct Use of Soap” and it’s a good one! I had never delved into Howard Devoto’s band back in the day. This was their third record, generally acknowledged as best. I compare it a bit to what Wire was doing back at that time on Chairs Missing and 154; it uses keyboards along with guitar/bass/drums, and it’s just a little creepy sounding at times. I love the cover of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Thank you (falettinme be mice elf agin)” and the song “I want to burn again”!

Here’s a good short overview on Magazine.
