The new edition of Classic Pop magazine, which I received today, is chock full of goodies this month – a dissection of electro-pop godfathers’ Kraftwerk’s seminal album, Autobahn…a main article on the Mandela 70th Bithrday concert – which has a second feature of Sir in amongst it (I will share these in separate posts)…a feature on John Foxx’s new Metamatic reissued boxset, amongst other things. Really worth the buy this month.
Here’s a little melting pot of things that caught my eye, for now…
Sir talks Don’t You (Forget About…my hair), there’s a rather scathing review of Eighth Wonder’s singular album release getting a red vinyl reissue, a review of Byran Ferry’s gig at the London Palladium (oh, don’t I wish I could turn back time by just FRACTION so I could go!), and finally, new pin-up boys on the block in 1979, Tubeway Army…featureing the Kerr doppelgänger, Billy Currie (just in case I need to point him out, standing just behind Numan’s left shoulder).
Enjoy the mishmash for now…the rest will be posted shortly.
