This north Indiana outfit ruled the roost in the "Michiana" region in the mid-'70s, attracting
huge crowds whenever they played live.
Often compared with Led Zeppelin, this 5-piece outfit rocked the area with a tight and raw
sound that combined in-your-face hard rock with undisguised psychedelic tendencies and
lashings of fuzz.
It must be said the boys didn't do themselves any favours by issuing their only known album
with a cover reminiscent of a Journey photo shoot, but regardless of their dubious hair and
sense of dress, Magi certainly deserved more than the obscurity into which they ultimately
Win Or Lose, recorded at Uncle Dirty's Sound Machine studios in Michigan in 1976, and
which boasts a series of solid songs propelled by a tight rhythm section and some more-than
respectable vocals, is always reviewed enthusiastically:
"superb heavy rock fuzz spectacular with some psych feel"
" r a re Led Zep-like masterpiece of killer ro c k "
"hard ro c k i n ' with a psych edge that makes it totally unique"
In another place or time this band could have been huge. As it is, we only have this one
incredibly rare album to judge them by, but based on the evidence, Magi definitely receives an
unqualified thumbs-up. Highly recommended Track listing: 1. Win Or Lose
2. Undecided Man
3. I Didn't Ask You
4. Steves Jam
5. Fryin' Away Time
6. Snow Bound
7. Runnin' Low
8. Everytime I'm With You
