Magazine Secondhand Daylight on Import 180g LP
Leading the vanguard of post-punk new wave, Magazine's sound was built on the enigmatic combination of Howard Devoto's social poetry, Dave Formula's swirling keyboards and John McGeoch's innovative guitar work. The band has been cited as influences on the likes of Morrissey, Jarvis Cocker, U2, Muse and Radiohead among others. Originally issued in 1979, Secondhand Daylight is the band's second album and follow-up to debut Real Life (1978). The album served as Colin Thurston's first official production job. He had previously worked as an engineer for David Bowie's Heroes and Iggy Pop's The Idiot and would later produce The Party's Over by Talk Talk. One single, "Rhythm of Cruelty," was released from the album.
