Issue Cover

Long Live Vinyl  |  May  

The new issue of Long vinyl celebrates 40 years of beguiling brilliance from music’s ever-evolving prince of darkness, the peerless Nick Cave – from Birthday Party to Bad Seeds. Our cover story features contributions from many of Cave’s trusted allies and bandmates and we also bring you an essential collector’s guide to his labyrinthine output on vinyl.

Elsewhere in a packed issue, we speak to Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien about his debut solo album as EOB and check in with Ghostpoet, BC Camplight, Kelly Lee Owens and Brendan Benson to hear about their new records.

In these ongoing uncertain times, we find out what record shops are doing to stay alive – and how you can help. Our Classic Album is The Cure’s 1980 sophomore release, 17 Seconds, we tell the great what-if story of Big Star, meet Nirvana sleeve artist Robert Fisher and bring you expert crate digging guides to punk 45s and Colombian choice cuts.
