THIS MONTH’S MOJO MAGAZINE bursts with big names. David Bowie’s friends and bandmates – plus the elusive Tony Defries – relive the beauty and daring of Hunky Dory on the occasion of its 50th birthday. Only 30 but no less potent, we revisit Nirvana’s Nevermind with Krist Novoselic, Butch Vig and more. Jimi Hendrix’s lost Joni Mitchell tape is uncovered. Bruce Springsteen’s glory days are exposed. We explore the tenacity of The Hollies, the tragedy of Bill Evans, and Jeff Wayne’s indestructible War Of The Worlds. Plus: Elvis Costello en espagnol; Manic Street Preachers’ Nicky Wire says sorry. And: The Beach Boys; Blackbeard; David Wiffen; Kevin Coyne; George Harrison; Prince; Villagers. Then it’s all back to Jakob Dylan’s!
THIS MONTH’S COVERMOUNT CD explores the chamber pop legacy of Hunky Dory, with tracks by Plush, Cardinal, Richard Swift, John Grant, St Vincent, Father John Misty, Mike Garson and more!
