About Long Live Vinyl

In issue 26 of Long Live Vinyl we’ve enlisted an all-star cast to tell the inside story of 2 Tone, the label and scene that gave hope to a generation. Jerry Dammers and his former Specials bandmates join members of The Beat and The Selecter to talk us through the history of one of the great British musical movements in a series of exclusive interviews you won’t want to miss. Elsewhere this issue, we speak to Foals and Sleaford Mods about their brilliant new albums, and The Antlers reflect on the 10th anniversary reissue of their cult classic Hospice. We also revisit Pixies’ timeless second album Doolittle on its 30th birthday, meet legendary Buzzcocks designer Malcolm Garrett and visit the best record shops in South Wales. If all that’s not enough, you’ll find reviews of new releases and reissues by the likes of New Order, The Chemical Brothers, The Fall, Gang Of Four and Kevin Morby, plus the latest new turntables, amps and speakers. Enjoy the issue!
