No. 36 — Black Sabbath cover story

We’re turning it up to 11 as Long Live Vinyl pays tribute to 50 years of Black Sabbath and the birth of heavy metal…

Our cover story digs deep into the early years of Birmingham’s kings of heavy rock, while we also pick out 40 essential metal albums from a genre that has twisted and evolved in multiple directions over the past half-century.

You’ll also want to strap yourself in as we join Iggy Pop on a debauched journey through the 1980s, and our packed features section bulges with interviews with the likes of Johnny Marr, Supergrass, Wire, Editors and Isobel Campbell. 

Our Classic Album feature takes a fond look at the record that emerged from the feuding egos of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young back in 1970, Deja Vu, and we sit down for a cuppa with one-of-a-kind cover artist Robert Crumb.
