Classic Pop  |  Jul/ Aug 2022  

In the latest issue of Classic Pop we have an exclusive interview with Karl Bartos who reveals all about his life in Kraftwerk.
We also serve up an exclusive chat with Keren Woodward and Sara Dallin, as the pair take us inside Bananarama’s lockdown-inspired new album, Masquerade. Equally productive during pandemic downtime, Clare Grogan tells us why she’s reconvened Altered Images as a recording outfit with husband Stephen Lironi and neighbour Bernard Butler, to serve up Mascara Streakz – the band’s first new studio LP in almost 40 years. .. read more
Elsewhere, we take a deep dive into Whitney Houston’s back catalogue for our Album By Album feature and meet Thomas Robsahm, the director behind the new fly-on-the-wall a-ha documentary.
Annie Lennox’s stunning Diva is this issue’s Classic Album and we meet The Revolution’s Wendy & Lisa who give us a fascinating insight into what life was like on stage in Prince’s backing band as the latest archive release from the Purple One’s vault reveals a must-listen triple live LP.
We also head down the front to catch the ground-breaking Abba Voyage avatar live show plus catch gigs by Blondie and the Pet Shop Boys.
Our comprehensive reviews section features new albums from Dave Stewart, Bananarama, Neneh Cherry, Sun’s Signature and Hot Chip, while our expanded reissues section includes Madonna, George Michael, Roxy Music, Depeche Mode and Swing Out Sister.
