MARCH 2024


THE BEATLES IN 1964 - As 1964 dawned, the Fab Four’s horizons were widening as Brian Epstein plotted domination of foreign territories – first priority, of course, being the US. We tell the story of those seismic first weeks of the year, accompanied by Paul McCartney’s candid snapshots of the cultural whirlwind whipping up around them
MARTIN REV -  His former partner in sonic subversion, Alan Vega, may no longer be with us, but as the former Suicide revolutionary looks back, he insists he is still hungry
DWIGHT TWILLEY -  Despite being a prime mover of the 70s power pop scene, the late Oklahoman deserved many more hits than he achieved. We revisit an under-explored career and back catalogue
X-RAY SPEX -  Poly Styrene and Lora Logic cut vibrant and influential female figures on the punk scene. The latter and her erstwhile bandmates discuss their all-too-brief, sax-spattered explosion onto the punk scene
ANTHONY NEWLEY -  Known to some as a one-time paramour of Joan Collins, this maverick songwriter, playwright and performer left his mark in so many other ways
SHED SEVEN -  Notching no end of hits as banger-friendly underdogs and critical joke-butts during Britpop, York’s most famous indie-rock exports are revitalised on a new album
FROM THE VAULTS -  Reissues from The Waterboys and Linda Smith, comps from Martin Carthy and Can... and the rest
NEW ALBUMS -  New long-playing product from The Jesus & Mary Chain and Liam Gallagher/John Squire among others
BOOKS -  Memoirs by Richard Norris and Adrian Borland plus our pick of new DVDs
SINGLES -  New 45s by Blossom Toes, Soft Machine and Crazy World Of Arthur Brown
LIVES - Clapton’s benefit for Gaza gets top billing as our eye witnesses report back
