The Magnificent – Bad Lucky CD (JSNTGM) Although Leeds punkers The Magnificent have been around a while this is my first encounter with the trio. I usually trust my initial impressions when hearing a band for the first time, and this impression is definitely a winner. Kicking the album off with a swagger and a lick straight from the pages of the rock n roll history books, opening tune “1981″ sets the lads off on a winning course right from the start, with a really powerful anthem. It kind of reminds me of Liverpool’s own Down & Outs so no surprise when I saw in the liner notes that Mark from the said act adds his backing vocals to a couple of tracks on here as well as co-writing the opener! On further inspection the name Jeff Pezzati as one of the backing vocalists also jumped out from the page, blimey how can you go wrong when you’ve got the singer of Naked Raygun/ The Bomb on your album?! But enough namedropping, as The Magnificent more than hold their own in terms of songwriting, sound and style. If there’s one thing I would like to have seen here it would be a more comprehensive packaging – especially with cd sales being in a sorry state, but it’s a minor gripe. I believe they started out with more than just a nod in Rancid’s direction, but they have definitely outgrown this and their style is much more melodic and straight forward – you could easily see these fellas rocking alongside Dillinger Four or Snuff for example. There is a streetpunk touch on a couple of songs, and all in all this is a really solid album that is proud to wear the punk badge on its sleeve.
