IN 2017, DAVE GROHL is a world-straddling rock titan with his band the Foo Fighters, touting a brand new album of his best songs yet; but 25 years ago, as he prepared to take the Reading Festival stage with an embattled Nirvana, his future was on a knife edge. ONLY in this month’s MOJO magazine, he relives the moments and celebrates the influences that made the songwriter and star of today, while a 15-track FREE CD showcases the American alternative rock revolution of 1989-92, with fierce tracks from Afghan Whigs, Pavement, Mudhoney and more. Also in the issue: David Gilmour goes back to Pompeii; Cat Stevens reclaims his past; while Sparks wave their freak flag high. Plus: Ian Dury & The Blockheads; Elvis – The Last Mystery; unseen Lou Reed by Mick Rock; LCD Soundsystem return… And: how Jimmy Webb struck MOR gold on PCP!
ON SALE FROM TUESDAY, October 28, 2014, the new MOJO salutes rock’s eternal voyagers Pink Floyd as they release The Endless River, the last music, they say, ever to be issued under the band’s name. In our 21-page special, we visit David Gilmour and Nick Mason in their lairs to talk at length about the album’s fragile genesis, and revisit the dramatic twists and turns of the group’s near 50-year career. Also: the first family of British folk – Thompsons Richard, Linda, Teddy and Kami – spill the beans on their unexpected but highly welcomed reunion; punk superstar Billy Idol walks us through his dark and debauched ’80s MTV years; Mick Fleetwood bares his soul; those present there recall Kurt Cobain’s bizarre last-ever photo session; and California psych-aholic Ty Segall reveals his curious modus operandi. All this and more, plus a synapse-sizzling free CD compiling the best of the new psych-rock wavers.
On sale from Tuesday, July, 30, the latest issue of MOJO magazine commemorates the 20th Anniversary of In Utero, Nirvana’s final, splenetic studio album, with a free CD entitled Sub Pop Silver Jubilee, celebrating 25 years of Nirvana’s legendary original label, starring Mudhoney, The U-Men, Low, J Mascis, Daughn Gibson, Shabazz Palaces and Pissed Jeans – the cream of Seattle and beyond. Also in the issue: The Beatles Help! escapade; Elvis Costello’s collaboration with The Roots; Peter Gabriel’s designs on Dolly Parton; and albums from Goldfrapp, Franz Ferdinand, Devo, Chic and Nilsson.
