Magazine

They recruited Barry Adamson, Bob Dickinson and Martin Jackson to form the first lineup of the band, which signed to Virgin Records. Bob Dickinson left shortly after the release of the band's first single "Shot by Both Sides" and was replaced by Dave Formula.

Magazine was formed by Howard Devoto after he left Buzzcocks in 1976. In April 1977 he met guitarist John McGeoch and they began writing songs which would become the first Magazine material. They recruited Barry Adamson, Bob Dickinson and Martin Jackson to form the first lineup of the band, which signed to Virgin Records. Bob Dickinson left shortly after the release of the band's first single "Shot by Both Sides" and was replaced by Dave Formula.

Magazine's music had an incalculable impact on post-punk music of the late 1970s and early 1980s and continues to be an influence in modern music today. Radiohead in particular draws on the lyrical style of the group, and former Smiths' singer Morrissey covered "A Song From Under The Floorboards" during his 2006 world tour, and released it as a B-side on some versions of the single for "The Youngest Was the Most Loved".
