From Manchester in the mid-80s, Magic Roundabout have waited over three decades for the songs they recorded to finally be released.
Up was recently remastered after Ian Masters from The Pale Saints discovered their old recordings from 1987 and they’re finally released on Jack White’s Third Man Records.
During their original run they played gigs with the likes of The Pastels, The Blue Aeroplanes, Spacemen 3, Loop, My Bloody Valentine and Inspiral Carpets.
We play several tracks from the album throughout the show. There’s also the usual mix of new releases and nostalgia. The tracklisting is below.
