The Magnificent are a punk rock trio from West Yorkshire, England. I think they sound like Billy Bragg, Smalltown, Ringers, The Clash, and so on. When I heard these recordings I jumped at the opportunity to put this out. I’ve played them countless times since then and am extremely excited for this record is finally available!
From the band: “There is a lot of global unrest at the moment, and people of our generation don’t know what to do with their lives. This album is about how a generation struggles to emulate the feats of their parents, ‘the baby boomers’. Everyone is poor these days and everyone struggles to meet the cost of living. The album is about being born into a world ruled by economics that no-one truly understands or has control of. ”
