Issue 28 – Bowie '69
1969 was the year that changed everything for David Bowie, and in our exclusive cover feature we speak to his former girlfriend Hermione Farthingale, plus bandmates John 'Hutch' Hutchinson and George Underwood to get the inside story. With three new Bowie boxsets out this year, you won't want to miss these rare interviews with the people who knew Bowie best – and our stunning collector's cover.
Elsewhere this issue, we meet the ever-engaging Richard Hawley for a pint and a chat about his new album, Further, while Calexico and Iron & Wine tell us about their collaboration LP, Years To Burn. On the 40th anniversary of Joy Division's stellar debut Unknown Pleasures, Peter Hook takes us inside the making of the album, and we look back at another classic, Talk Talk's The Colour Of Spring. We also pay tribute to US indie label Merge on their 30th birthday and hear from James Lavelle about working with DJ Shadow, Thom Yorke, Richard Ashcroft and Danny Boyle.
If all that's not enough, we bring you 40 essential vinyl samplers and meet Super Furry Animals artwork designer Pete Fowler. Plus you'll find the widest range of vinyl and hi-fi gear reviews anywhere on the newsstand.
Long Live Vinyl is the only magazine dedicated to all things vinyl. We care deeply about the format and share the passion of the crate diggers, record labels and shops that are the beating heart of the vinyl revival.
Each month, we bring our readers a curated mix of interviews with their favourite bands, alongside the best columnists, in-depth features and expert buying advice.
Our reviews section is the most comprehensive on the newsstand, giving readers dozens of recommendations on the latest new releases, reissues, boxsets and hi-fi gear.
We're also the publishers of the official Record Store Day guide, a free magazine packed with details of every one of the 500+ Record Store Day releases and distributed to each of the 250 participating independent record shops every year.
At Long Live Vinyl we care about all things vinyl, and so do our readers.
