Classic Pop

Nov/Dec 2023 In the latest issue of Classic Pop we have an exclusive full band interview with Duran Duran who reveal all about their Halloween-themed new album Danse Macabre that features covers, reworked songs from their own back catalogue, as well as all-new material. We also meet OMD’s Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys who take us inside their stunning – and what very well may be their final – new studio LP, Bauhaus Staircase. Eddy Grant tells us how he’s made chart smashes from hard-hitting topics and reggae superstars UB40 reflect on 45 years at the top (and the rift that still rankles between brothers Robin and Ali Campbell). Elsewhere, we put Depeche Mode under the microscope for our Album By Album feature and hear from former Cure member Lol Tolhurst about his star-studded collaborative album, Los Angeles. Our latest classic album is a-ha’s Scoundrel Days and we also give some much-needed love to The Style Council’s Modernism: A New Decade. In our packed reviews section we give our verdict on new album releases including Duran Duran, OMD, Madness, Vince Clarke and The Rolling Stones plus there’s a comprehensive reissues section featuring Prince & The New Power Generation, New Order, Marc Almond, Soft Cell, Bryan Ferry, Kirsty MacColl and much more. We also check out live shows by UB40 and Dexys.
