* GriefSong: Sarcastically averted by "Hello [[Music/JoyDivision Mr Curtis]] (with apologies)", which proclaims Devoto's desire "To die like a king -- Like Elvis, on some godforsaken toilet".

Magazine are a rock band, originally from [[OopNorth Manchester]], England, noted for (arguably) being one of the TropeMakers of the PostPunk genre. Their lead singer, Howard Devoto, was originally [[FaceOfTheBand lead singer]] of the {{Music/Buzzcocks}}, but left after their first release, ''Spiral Scratch,'' allegedly believing that punk would be short lived and that something would need to be ready to take its place.

They soon released a single, at the time sans keyboardist, entitled [[EpicRiff "Shot By Both Sides"]], followed by an album, 1978's brilliant ''Real Life.'' The following year, they released the far more laid-back ''Secondhand Daylight,'' followed by 1980's more popular (though not necessarily better) ''The Correct Use Of Soap.'' This in turn was followed in 1981 by ''Magic, Murder and the Weather'', but by then [=McGeoch=] had quit (going on to develop as a bit of a {{New Wave|Music}} guitar god in [[Music/SiouxsieAndTheBanshees other bands]]), and although the band found a series of short-term replacements, Devoto broke up Magazine and more or less quit the music business to work as a photo archivist.

Magazine [[PuttingTheBandBackTogether reformed]] in 2009, with Noko taking the place of [=McGeoch=], who had [[AuthorExistenceFailure died]] in the interim. Adamson - who since their breakup had since carved himself out a career as a composer of soundtracks and a successful stint playing in Music/NickCaveAndTheBadSeeds - left after a while, being replaced by Jon "Stan" White, and the band released a new album, ''No Thyself''. At the last count, they were officially still going, if not very visibly active.

* {{Nerd}}: The band may play powerful post-punk rock and weird faintly jazzy electronic pop, but the scrawny, [[BaldOfAwesome balding]] Devoto comes across as a Music/NewWave nerd. He added horn-rimmed glasses to his look when the band reformed.
