Classic Pop

Jul/Aug 2024 In the latest issue of Classic Pop we have an exclusive interview with Marc Almond who reveals all about his new covers album I’m Not Anyone and the future of Soft Cell. Elsewhere, in another exclusive, we meet Fairground Attraction’s Eddi Reader and Mark Nevin as the band reunite after 35 years for a brand new studio album and tour. As it gets a surprise reissue, Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert of New Order side project The Other Two take us inside their debut album and Marcella Detroit revisits her 1994 solo LP Jewel ahead of its 30 th anniversary expanded edition release. Our classic album is Talk Talk’s It’s My Life and we also reappraise Tears For Fears’ Everybody Loves A Happy Ending. Echo & The Bunnymen’s back catalogue goes under the microscope for our Album By Album feature and we also catch up with Nick Heyward to hear about how the new Haircut 100 LP is shaping up. Meanwhile, Classic Pop gets academic with Professor Thomas Dolby ahead of his return to the UK for some rare live dates and Bernard Butler explains why he’s rebooting his solo career for new LP, Good Grief. In a packed reviews section we give our verdict on new album releases including Marc Almond, Dexys, Charlie XCX, Bon Jovi and Blur plus on the reissues front we feature Duran Duran, Nik Kershaw, Erasure, David Bowie, Seal, Dead Or Alive and much more.
