Mojo 288 / November 2017
WITH BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS and rare pictures, the latest MOJO delves into the most fascinating phase of David Bowie’s career: his late-’70s spell in Berlin, and the paradigm-shifting albums that sprang from it. Tony Visconti, Carlos Alomar and more help us decode Low, “Heroes” and Lodger while our 15-track Free CD, Neu Decade, celebrates the music that fed into Bowie’s Euro-exile – including Can, Cluster, Popol Vuh and Michael Rother. Also in the issue: Otis Redding’s climactic 1967; Dhani Harrison on life as a Beatle’s boy; Taj Mahal takes the blues to the world; Chris Hillman remembers the Byrds, Burrito Brothers and beyond; and we celebrate the staggering legacies of Holger Czukay, Walter Becker and Glen Campbell. Plus: Slade; KLF; Tricky; First Aid Kit; Lukas Nelson; Wolf Alice; The Smiths; Robert Plant; Liam Gallagher; St. Vincent; Beck; Kevin Ayers; Peggy Seeger and… Crass!
