Madchester icons Happy Mondays talk us through the pills, thrills and bellyaches of their storied career – Shaun Ryder is on particularly fiery form – and we play Mr and Mrs with China Crisis mainstays Gary Daly and Eddie Lundon.

If your first introduction to chart music was via Now That's What I Call Music compilations then check out our fond look back at the series, which includes a rare interview with the man who put them all together, Ashley Abram.

Bjork, U2, Midge Ure and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds head up our new album reviews while Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, Marc Almond and Liam Gallagher lead the charge in our packed line-up of live reviews.

   The mag that pop fans deserve Reviewed Saturday, January 21, 2017
About time - a mag for great pop music that treats us like grown-ups. Brilliant. Loads in there from bands like Depeche Mode, Human League, The Smiths and 90s stuff too.
   Stunning tribute to George Reviewed Saturday, January 21, 2017
Wow. Just opened my new issue of Classic Pop and there's so much inside. I'm a lifelong George Michael and Wham! fan so I was blown away by the features devoted to George. Solo stuff, Wham! stuff - all the albums, singles and videos. So much better than the other mags out there.
