As the exhaustive new 15-disc David Bowie boxset, Loving The Alien, hits the streets, Long Live Vinyl lifts the lid on the period between 1983-88 when Bowie became a global pop megastar.
Through exclusive interviews with Nile Rodgers, Carlos Alomar, Reeves Gabrels and Hugh Padgham, we bring you the inside story behind Bowie’s biggest decade, as well as an in-depth look at the reimagined Never Let Me Down 2018 album that’s the highlight of the new boxset.
Elsewhere in this packed issue, we speak to Mark Lanegan about making his most spontaneous album to date with Duke Garwood; Hookworms reveal how they’ve become one of the UK’s most exciting live acts – while holding down day jobs; Cornershop look forward to their long-awaited new album; and Matt Berry kicks off the countdown to National Album Day.
Dennis Morris tells us about his career photographing bona fide music legends including Bob Marley and the Sex Pistols; our Classic Album is Primal Scream’s 1991 collision of garage rock and dance music, Screamadelica; we round up 40 Essential Queen albums; and The Trip heads to Bordeaux on a French cratedigging adventure.
If all that’s not enough, we bring you the widest range of new album, reissue, turntable and accessory reviews anywhere on the newsstand.
