Issue Cover

Classic Pop  |  Classic Pop David Bowie  

We celebrate David Bowie with 'When Bowie Went Pop', a massive article on David Bowie's Eighties music and influence, featuring new interviews with his guitarist and creative collaborator Carlos Alomar, bass player Carmine Rojas and author of Starman: The Definitive Biography Paul Trynka. We look at how David Bowie's music defined the 1980s pop landscape and also study the work that he made during that decade - from Scary Monsters to Never Let Me Down.

Tears For Fears reveal the background of their 1983 classic album The Hurting; we reveal The Top 50 12-inch singles that defined a music format and a generation; Mark Frith talks Sheffield, the city that spawned The Human League. Heaven 17 and Cabaret Voltaire; exclusive interviews withTony Hadley, Giorgio Moroder, Belinda Carlisle, Wet Wet Wet, Howard Jones and Jim Kerr; Labelled With Love on Virgin Records, the label that produced so many classic recordings; Kate Bush on The Hounds Of Love; The Police, The Lowdown; and reviews of releases from New Order, Heaven 17, Saint Etienne, Belinda Carlisle, and Nik Kershaw plus live reviews of Blondie, Depeche Mode and Glastonbury.

We really hope you'll join us for our latest celebration of the fabulous world of pop!
