One of my favourite tracks ever, ‘Shot my Both Sides’ by Howard Devoto and Magazine. Great on stage, wired, frenetic, edgy and every thing a punk band should be. The track and album was released in 1978 the year I left school (and went to college). I saw the band live twice that year I think. Great times.
Jubilee year is bringing all this back to me, though this particular track was released the year after. For me 1977, the year of Queenies Silver Jubilee was about bad behaviour, punk music, jelly shoes, pins, spikey black hair, wearing my Dad’s shirts ripped up, going to loads, loads, loads of gigs, bad boys, beer, fierce make-up and more gigs.
