Buzzcocks vs. Magazine :: Lipstick vs. Shot by Both Sides

Pete Shelley’s the man. I haven’t been able to get the Buzzcocks out of my head lately (insert Harmony in my Head joke here). When you listen to Pete Shelley, you can’t help but move along to Magazine, fronted by ex-Buzzcocker Howard Devoto.

The great thing about having two artists who were once creative partners split to make their own bands  is this: you occasionally end up with two unique takes on an identical piece of art. In this case, both Shelley and Devoto riffed on the same guitar riff.

Here’s Shelley’s take in “Lipstick”.

Now, here’s Howard Devoto and Magazine’s version in “Shot by Both Sides”…

So, who do you think did it better?
