what happened next
After two albums, the band split in 1981. Devoto did record again with old Buzzcocks band mate Pete Shelley in 2001. John McGeoch became a Banshee following their problems in 1979 and played for both bands. He also featured in a later incarnation of PIL.  McGeoch died in 2004. Dave Formula was also part of Visage (Fade to Grey etc) as was Barry Adamson.

Magazine reformed for shows in 2009
