Ipso Facto and Magazine::support and collaboration

This year Ipso Facto supported Siouxsie Sioux, next year it's Magazine. The legendary post-punk pioneers have chosen the Ipsos as their support for their reunion gigs next February, after making contact via MySpace. Not only will Ipso Facto be warming up the crowd in London, Manchester, and Glasgow, but also singing doo-wop backing vocals on some songs from 1981's Magic, Murder and the Weather album. The four-piece are known to be enormous fans of Magazine, who have reformed despite the death in 2004 of guitarist John McGeoch (to be replaced on the upcoming tour by Norman Fisher-Jones), and Rosalie Cunningham has described her group as 'starstruck' by the opportunity. Tickets are selling out fast.
