John Cooper Clarke, Magazine, Morrissey, The Nosebleeds
The Ritz
8th May 1978

Poster advertising a gig by Magazine at the New Ritz, Manchester on Monday 8th of May 1978. Support came from John Cooper-Clarke and the Nosebleeds (who were at that time fronted by Morrissey: Paul Morley reviewed the Nosebleeds performance at the gig in the NME as follows: "The Nosebleeds have also noticeably metamorphosed though probably due more to personnel changes than anything else. Last year they were the entirely forgettable Ed Banger and the Nosebleeds (who 'created' the dirge-like single "Ain't Bin To No Music School" for Rabid Records); now Banger has gone his own so-called eccentric way. The Nosebleeds re-surface boasting A Front Man With Charisma, always an advantage. Lead singer is now minor local legend Steve Morrisson, who, in his own way, is at least aware that rock'n'roll is about magic, and inspiration. So The Nosebleeds are now a more obvious rock'n'roll group than they've ever been. Only their name can prevent them being this year's surprise.")
