Magazine Play 1980 1978

Play is a live album by British new wave band Magazine.

The original release featured ten songs recorded in concert at the Melbourne Festival Hall in Melbourne, Australia on 6th September 1980.

In 2009 it was reissued as Play+ and had two more songs from the 1980 Melbourne concert together with another nine from a concert at the Lesser Free Trade Hall in Manchester on 21st July 1978.

Magazine were formed when Howard Devoto left The Buzzcocks in early 1977 and are most famous for the single Shot By Both Sides (which I bought and then left in the record shop in Stafford in 1978).
