For our second exclusive of the week, we’re giving you a whole darn album by a gifted English pop-rock band
This Friday (28 April) English pop-rock group The Magic Es’ debut album, It Goes On, is made avilable via general release. However, you, dear listeners, are not the general public. No, you are special and as such you get to hear this terrific LP a day early.
Speaking of the band’s history, frontman Pete Thomson says:
“We’ve all been playing music for years. Stuart, Phil and I were playing at a friend’s wedding. The gig was in a marquee, which happened to be in Jasper’s garden. It turned out that Jasper not only had a garden fitting for a rock ‘n’ roll wedding; he was also a bass player of some pedigree and in the band Then Jerico. We shared stories about our various musical adventures, influences and aspirations and the band grew quickly from there.”
They’ve been likened to The Replacements, Teenage Fanclub, Big Star and The Jam. We certainly agree that fans of those four band’s will enjoy It Goes On, while we also think that it will find favour with those who are fond of The Raconteurs and The Smithereens. As always, though, we’ll let you decide how accurate those comparisons are…
