Bob Dylan
Fifty years on, MOJO goes deep inside the double mega genius of Dylan’s Blonde On Blonde with contributions from Al Kooper, Greil Marcus, Michael Simmons, Sean Wilentz, Sylvie Simmons and Bob Mehr.

Prince: Saluting His Purple Reign
Focusing on four dramatic chapters, we celebrate the remarkable life and music of the already much-missed pop wonder.

Sean Lennon
The son and the heir of pop and art-rock legends speaks about his life in music, from jukebox inspirations to new prog experiments.

The Associates
They were one of the greatest bands of the ’80s, a high-flying opera of surreal, breathless drama. We tell the story of their unique, short-lived glory.

Max Jury
We meet the melancholy Midwest kid and 21st century Gram Parsons searching for some country truths.

Radiohead
As the band come up for air after an extended hiatus from the studio, MOJO dives straight into Thom Yorke and co’s A Moon Shaped Pool.
