Classic Pop  |  Apr/May 2015 - Classic Pop Awards Special  


We're excited to announce the inaugural Classic Pop Awards!

There are 12 categories in total, including; Best Single, Lifetime Achievement, Best Breakthrough Artist, Best Producer, Best Album, Maverick Spirit, Best Designer, Best Cover Version, Best Classic Album, Best Reissue, Best Film, and Best Compilation.

Any and all artists were eligible for every award, no matter when they first started recording, or how long they've been performing. All except for one category, Best Breakthrough. In order to choose our winner for this one, we surveyed the current music scene, and found a gem. Look inside for interviews with all the recipients…

Also in this issue… Classic Pop remembers Steve Strange, Duran Duran live, The Human League's classic album 'Crash', the lowdown on Bananarama, Prince and more interviews with Marc Almond, Daryl Hall, Rumer and The Blow Monkeys.

First launched in October 2012, Classic Pop is a monthly British music magazine, that celebrates the most influential pop music from the 70s, 80s and 90s.


In each issue, Classic Pop dedicates a minimum of five pages to the creation, influence and history of one of the most significant albums from the pop genre. From Duran Duran’s ‘Rio’ to ‘Fantastic’ by Wham! or Primal Scream’s outstanding ‘Screamadelica’, Classic Pop magazine covers all of your favourite pop music classics.


As well as it’s regular monthly editions, Classic Pop has released a number of special one-off issues that celebrate the most influential, classic pop icons such as Michael Jackson, ABBA, Elton John, Prince, Madonna, David Bowie and Paul McCartney.
