Stiv Bators Do You Believe In Magyk? on Import LP
Recorded in May 1990, Do You Believe In Magyk? features the last ever recordings made by Stiv Bator (The Dead Boys, The Lords of the New Church), issued briefly in France as The Last Race. The album finds Stiv covering songs by The Ramones, The Young Rascals and The Lollipopp Shoppe, plus a song written especially for the proceedings by Tony James (Generation X, Sigue Sigue Sputnik). He also tackles his own old Lords of the New Church rehearsal song "Two Hearts." Do You Believe In Magyk? boasts contributions from Godfathers guitarist Kris Dollimore and Monte Cristos and ex-Sigue Sigue Sputnik guitarist Neal Whitmore. Both Johnny Thunders and Dee Dee Ramone were originally present for the recordings but due to a disagreement both departed without contributing to the album despite urban myths of the contrary.
