ANIMAL MAGIC John Peel Session 20th January 1982

 

MagicI saw ANIMAL MAGIC play a number of times around the end of 1981 start of 1982. They were much of the post POP GROUP put the funk back into punk variety. I liked the singer’s desperate squeal, which was very much a la POP GROUP. They had a girl trumpet player that looked everything like the librarian lost when wandering on to the stage but her cheeks would puff up dizzily-gillepsie like when the band started bouncing around the stage. I had a friend at Bristol University. I went to visit him as THE FALL were playing at the Uni. I remember nearly breaking my neck hacking down 3 flights of stairs to go from ANIMAL MAGIC to THE FALL.. Only to repeat the exercise 35 minutes later hacking up the stairs to catch BLACK ROOTS & THE THOMPSON TWINS (No don’t … Don’t mock poor Fruity)
Anyway here’s ANIMAL MAGIC’s Peel Session which I believe was released as an EP (I have it .. It’s in the loft but it would require me to go up there & check). They also had a single “Standard Man” which I was always (still am) very fond of.
