‘The Correct Use Of Soap’
15 May 1980
POP MATTERS wrote: “Magazine’s ‘The Correct Use of Soap’ is such a wayward, iconoclastic record, so willfully out of kilter with its own time, that its sound-world and emotional landscape remain unique in pop. The band drafted in producer Martin Hannett, who had earlier mixed Spiral Scratch under the moniker Martin Zero. In its poetry, its emotional richness and rare intelligence, The Correct Use of Soap represents the zenith of Magazine’s art. The LP stands as a monument to a band that, even amidst the convulsions of punk and its aftermath, dared to be different.” Full review right here.
