I'm not that surprised, myself. Almost every half-decent band from that era seems to have appeared on the re-union circuit over the last five years or so. After seeing the Only Ones play again - which I'd never have thought possible - I don't find the prospect of a Magazine re-union so unlikely.

Magazine : 2009

Magazine, one of Britain’s most influential bands, are to reform
for just two concerts in February 2009.
Original members Howard Devoto, Dave Formula, Barry Adamson
and John Doyle are to be joined by an as yet unnamed guest guitarist,
to walk in the not inconsiderable footsteps of the departed, and sadly missed, John McGeoch.
It is the first time Magazine have played live together since 1980.
They are to play The Forum, London on February 13th & The Academy,
Manchester on February 14th. Tickets are released next Monday,
the 15th of September from the venue box offices and usual suspects.

The Forum / 0844 847 2405 / www.kentishtownforum.com
The Academy / 0161 832 1111 / www.ticketline.co.uk

Enduringly credible, Magazine have always been the connoisseur’s
choice and have been frequently name checked by some of the most
gifted musicians of recent years including Radiohead, Morrissey,
Jarvis Cocker, U2 & Maximo Park. This year, NME.com included
Magazine in a poll as one of the most influential bands of all time.
Magazine’s front man, Howard Devoto co-formed Buzzcocks with
Pete Shelley after the pair had seen the Sex Pistols in early 1976 and
promoted the now legendary Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall gigs.
Devoto left in 1977, after the seminal “Spiral Scratch” EP had been
released, and created Magazine. Their first record was the post-Punk anthem “Shot By Both Sides”.
Four ground breaking albums later and the band had parted company,
leaving behind an influential body of work which was re-released by Virgin EMI last year to critical acclaim.
The concerts are being staged in association with The Gig Cartel
and Wire–Sound and will be recorded for possible release later in 2009.

London: February 13th or Manchester: 14th.
I think I'll probably plump for Manchester. Which one are you going to?
