THIS MONTH MOJO commemorates the 50th Anniversary of Jimi Hendrix’s musical revolution with an exclusive step inside his studio realm – courtesy of his closest sonic confidant – and a celebration of the 27 songs that landmarked his too-short life. Our covermount CD is also Jimi-themed: Kiss The Sky is a 15-track trek from the blues to the stars and beyond. Also in the issue: The Clash take punk to the provinces in spring ’77; Roger Waters picks a fight; Dan Auerbach says The Black Keys will have to wait; The Selecter relive their 2-Tone travails. Plus: Father John Misty trips out; Depeche Mode go live; Steve Earle by his own hand; OK Computer rebooted; Warren Zevon reassessed; And: U2; Scott Walker; Oumou Sangare; The National; Kraftwerk; Ride; farewell, Chris Cornell, Gregg Allman, Saxa; Dylan at Newport ’63. And finally: how John Lennon freed John Sinclair with a bagful of drugs.
BOB DYLAN’s BLONDE ON BLONDE album is a landmark in music: the ultimate combination of rock’n’roll thrills and lyrical mysteries. 50 years since its inception, MOJO devotes 19 pages to its wonders, with all-new interviews with the men who made it, plus an in-depth look at Dylan’s brand new album, Fallen Angels. Meanwhile, our free CD is a specially commissioned tribute to Blonde On Blonde, with covers by contemporary stars including Phosphorescent, Ryley Walker and more. A LIMITED EDITION package, with the album on double ‘blonde’ vinyl and a Dylan art print, is also available. Drill down for a 10-page celebration of the music of PRINCE; the wild and tragic tale of The Associates; Sean Lennon in his own right; 122 Reviews – including Radiohead, Laura Mvula, Paul Simon and The Beach Boys; and finally… Fat White Family meet Lady Gaga!
