MOJO MAGAZINE IS 20 YEARS YOUNG, a fact celebrated in a special collectors’ issue of the magazine, featuring a free 20-track CD showcasing some of the best music of the magazine’s lifetime – starring Arctic Monkeys, Jack White, Black Keys, Boards Of Canada, Animal Collective and many more.
Add to that exclusive interviews with 20 world-changing musicians looking back on their 20th year, a special presentation wallet (pictured) and a front cover design by 24-carat music legend Kate Bush, and you’re looking at a unique, unmissable package.
Phil Alexander, the Editor-In-Chief of MOJO says: “When we started talking about celebrating 20 years of MOJO we felt that we wanted to genuinely reflect what the magazine was all about: the music – the people that make it and the people that listen to it. The ideas we came up with revolved around that rather looking back at the history of the magazine itself which, while admirable, we felt was less exciting than asking Ringo Starr about what it was like to play Butlin’s in 1960, or how John Lydon felt in the year he became Johnny Rotten. The idea of everything revolving around the number 20 seemed obvious but it gave us the option of delivering great stories, as well as celebrating 20 years of great music.”
Additionally, we unveil The 20 Greatest Albums Of The Last 20 Years, as voted by MOJO’s readers, and explore how they were made with the people who made them.
Then there’s all the usual stuff, including Fleetwood Mac icon Stevie Nicks in the MOJO Interview, plus definitive reviews of albums by Midlake, Tears For Fears, Jake Bugg, Oh Land, The Who, Motörhead, Paul McCartney, White Denim, Billy Bragg, Rod Stewart, Woody Guthrie, King Crimson, The Grateful Dead and tons more.
Here’s that celebration CD tracklisting in full…
