The Buzzcocks and Magazine hardly resemble each other at all, really. Magazine was still punky, but it sounds to have been influenced by art groups like Roxy music, rather than the 60s pop and Krautrock influences on The Buzzcocks. I'd compare them (Magazine) to The "Rattus Norvegicus"-era Stranglers, Public Image Limited and The Fall.

Apparently nobody thinks about them much at all.

yeah, I'm not sure if Magazine are Hall of Famers myself though I would hardly complain if they got inducted (which isn't going to happen unfortunately), the similarities (or lack thereof) between Magazine and the Buzzcocks has already been mentioned so I won't dwell on that.

Just realized my contradiction (not discussing the similarities then mentioning that trivia bit), oops.

Magazine was one of the great post-punk bands. If their current reputation has faded a bit, it may be because while each of their first three LP's were very good (excluding the final one, Magic, Murder and the Weather), none was an absolute stunner like Unknown Pleasures, Pink Flag or Entertainment! Many of their best moments came on singles like "Shot By Both Sides" (the Real Life version doesn't match the original 45) and "Give Me Everything." Some of these 45 tracks have been added as bonuses to reissues of Real Life, Secondhand Daylight and The Correct Use of Soap; in that context, they feel like add-ons, not really the best way to hear them.
