Classic Pop  |  Jul/Aug 2020  


So... it’s been a while. Thanks for bearing with us while we briefly pressed the pause button on the magazine to make it through the initial impact of the pandemic. So what have we got for you in our new issue? Well, we’re delighted to welcome back Sparks to the magazine as they embark on a busy 2020; a new album, a Hollywood musical and a documentary directed by Baby Driver’s Edgar Wright – it’s all going on for the Mael brothers. Plus we take a detailed look at the back catalogue of Nick Heyward for our latest Album By Album feature and we have interviews with synth icons John Foxx and Neil Arthur, returning with charged-up new albums by The Maths and Blancmange respectively. Elsewhere, make sure you check out a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Stone Roses’ historic gig at Spike Island in all its chaotic glory. With the live music scene currently forced to sit it out, we’ve expanded our new albums and reissues section to fill the void. Now more than ever, our favourite musicians are helping to get us through some tough times with a whole host of exciting new releases. Enjoy the issue!
