winteracademy - sorry for the slow reply... no news yet about whose producing the new Magazine album. A new song though, funnily enough apparently called 'Hello Mister Curtis' surfaced at their recent gig in Wolverhampton - check it out on YouTube!

Howard also performed this song back in March 2004 at that Bridgewater Hall event in Manchester, so it's actually a few years old. The recent Magazine live versions from Kent and Wolverhampton sound great though, hopefully all the songs on the new album will be as good.

I went to that, is that the one he did with Pete Shelley?
I know they did some Buzzkunst things.

Well, sort of. Songs like Stupid Kunst and So There I Was from the Buzzkunst album were also performed, but Howard appears to be alone on stage using backing tracks and is only joined by Pete on guitar for 'Til The Stars In His Eyes Are Dead. Pete apparently did a separate solo set too. I wasn't there though, I've just seen some short video clips so I could well be wrong. There's a brief review here

My  second favourite band is Killing Joke who supported Joy Division in 1980. Jaz Coleman always speaks highly of the late Ian Curtis in interviews. KJ are back with the original 1978 line up of Jeremy 'Jaz' Coleman - vocals/keyboards, Kevin 'Geordie' Walker - lead guitars, Martin 'Youth' Glover - bass guitars and 'Big' Paul Ferguson -drums. KJ were once banned from playing a gig in Glasgow after they used a Nazi poster to promote it, like JD used a Hitler Youth drummer image on the cover of their Ideal for Living record. KJ are still playing live and going strong.

I thought KJ retired a couple of years ago...I saw one of the last shows were they played (with Youth on bass!) all the 1st album... it was great indeed... so they are still playing?

Yes Killing Joke are still very much alive and kicking! There will be a UK tour in 2012 with the original 1978 line up of Jaz (vocals), Geordie (lead guitar), Youth (bass) and Paul Ferguson (drums). The new album 'Absolute Dissent' is a gem. For the 2012 tour dates see the official website:

how could Killing Joke be "alive and kicking" at their age is beyond my comprehension... I think for bands there is an age for everything also for retiring...or they could become a pathetic post punk version of the Rolling Stones? Mick Jagger is still alive and kicking or just another old man, ex rock star?

Joy Division is my main favorite (of course :-)). Judging by my records, CDs and recordings collection Coil is definitely second, with the Velvet Underground, Front 242, Sonic Youth, Dead Can Dance, System 7 and Unwound following closely.

Have just discovered The Duke Spirit - wow, they are really superb - my favourite new band for about 30 years I'd say!

in this period there is a duel between two "second favorite" bands:

one is Monochrome Set
the other is the Pack/Theatre of Hate

is a duel between a joyful, happy, poppy band (with a punk past) and a dark, deep, obscure project
probably they reflects the 2 aspects of my personality -  

also JD had a very dark side: that of Eternal
and a poppy ligther one: Ceremony (even thought the lyrics here are very enigmatic, to say the least)

Remember hearing Eine Symphonie Des Grauens for the first time on the John Peel show. Bought the single soon after. Excellent band.

KJ are in their early 50s. 
Peter Hook is 55 and still touring with The Light playing JD songs.
Good for them.
I also like Section 25 and the post-Punk/Neo-folk music of Death in June.

I also like Death in June very much, especially the first period until the Wall of Sacrifice (1989)
Doug P will be here in Italy in december playing with Fire and Ice... dont know if i will go...i find these old guys still touring a bit pathetic...the Rolling Stones of neo folk!

Death in June play live in England on Friday 23rd December 2011 at The Underworld, Camden, London.
I like the early 80s stuff like 'We Drive East', 'Fields' and 'Nation' (see Youtube).

'Sons of Europe' by Death in June is another great track.

Other likes: 'She Said Destroy' and 'Honour The Silence' by Death in June.
'Haunted' (about Ian Curtis) and 'Dirty Disco' by Section 25 (who are playing live in Manchester in January 2012).

I am looking forward to seeing Death in June in London.

I think it will be an all acoustic show with Doug doin' the old classics with his 12 string guitar and some drumming in the background
"The guilty have no pride" (1983) is an exellent post punk mini album
you can check several videoes from an 1982 show posted on you tube with the historical line up of Doug P, Tony Wakefiord (after in Sol Invictus) and P.Leagas (after in 6 Comm)
also the pre-death in June punk band Crisis is not bad at all: check the "Hymns of Faith" mini lp (1981) which I think is being republished recently

I watched Sol Invictus + 6 Comm + While Angels Watch at Electrowerkz/Slimelight in Islington, London on 25th June this year. Good show! I like 'Looking for Europe' by Sol Invictus.

I also saw Sol Invictus and 6 Comm recently: great shows - Leagas (alone!) was in great shape and so was Tony (too bad Blake left)
But the last Sol Invictus album, the cruellest month, is horrible (to say the least) - maybe is time for Tony to retire
