There is a common belief that the Rock and Roll Hall has a predisposition towards Punk Rock bands. There may be some validity to that but what of Post Punk? With this thought, we explore Magazine, a band that some critics have stated really defined the Post Punk movement.

Magazine may have been formed by former Buzzcock, Howard Devoto, but his new band seemed to bare little resemblance to his old one. Keeping Punk’s raw energy, Magazine experimented with Art Rock and a wide assortment of keyboards. Their sound was a form of Art-Punk and was influential in future New Wave acts. Much of their experimentations were heard in later British Alternative acts and like many of that era, they produced influential albums over a brief time span. By 1981, Magazine was finished though their albums certainly lived on. A band that flies the Post Punk flag could get in one day, though we bet this isn’t the one to do it.
