Issue 318 - May 2020

    COVER STORY: FOO FIGHTERS Twenty-five years on, Dave Grohl and co return to the mid-’90s’ post-Kurt crunch, when success was far from assured. Plus! US alt-rock’s broader crisis, the Foos’ new film (with Ringo!) and new album news.

    1970: THE GREAT DIVIDE James Taylor or the MC5? Supine singer-songwriters or revolting rockers? Jon Savage relives 1970 – the first year rock seriously considered its past, and future.

    ART GARFUNKEL The eccentric top end of the disharmonious duo rues his Bad Timing and regrets S&G’s untaken Irish direction. “I’m trying to be normal,” he insists.

    MARGO PRICE Obscurity and family trauma were the neo-outlaw country star’s formative ordeals. But neither is success stress-free: “I still don’t know why I’m here!”

    JARVIS COCKER Sex, cave art, Britpop: an eclectic smorgasbord of topics is served by the ex-Pulp frontman, back with his best music since the mid-’90s.

    JOHN ENTWISTLE Fellow musicians regarded The Who’s bassist with awe; fellow carousers thought him unfellable. But the rock star life he loved had his number in the end.

    THE JESUS & MARY CHAIN How the battling bros of ’80s UK indie survived the Psychocandy shitstorm to prove doubters wrong on Darklands: “We thought, Let’s make an album about the songs.”

    PUNK IN LONDON Sheila Rock’s photographs of Lydon, Strummer, Siouxsie (and incinerated human remains?) recreate a scene shot through with innocence and idealism.

    Issue 316 - March 2020

      MARKING 40 YEARS SINCE their epic final album, Closer, and Ian Curtis’s tragic suicide, Joy Division’s surviving members revisit their 1980, while MOJO’s covermount CD, Atmospheres, traces the band’s fertile milieu and legacy through Wire and A Certain Ratio to Idles, Jehnny Beth and Black Country, New Road.

      Also in this issue: how The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway spelt the end for Peter Gabriel’s Genesis; Curtis Mayfield’s early-’70s bid for autonomy; The Black Crowes’ battle royale. Plus: Beastie Boys, John Prine, Peter Green, The Necks, Maria McKee, Mosey Sumney, Hank Williams, Tame Impala, Etta James, The Chocolate Watch Band, Neil Innes RIP, and Brian Jones… on acid!

      When you hear the crisp robo-electro of "Don't Stop The Rock" it immediately transports you back to the mid-eighties when these sounds were first emerging and blowing up the streets. A real favourite of cult Detroit DJ and original light flasher The Electrifying Mojo, it will still have you doing back flips to this day with its jerking beats and serrated synth lines all looking to the future. On the flip, the urgent space crusade that is "It's Automatic" surges with galactic chords with robotic vocals that bring a brilliant retrofuture feeling. This is an essential little 7" that really packs a punch.

      Cybotron

      Clear / Alleys Of Your Mind

      Tunes don't really comes as influential or groundbreaking as Cybotron's seminal "Clear", one of Juan Atkins first foray into producing from 1983 which laid the blueprint for electro and many others to come. Rarer than hens teeth on 7", here is a full digitally remastered version, complete with the debut "Alleys Of Your Mind" from 1981 on the B side. Limited edition.

      Various Artists

      Walkin' Girl - The Rhythm, The Blues, The Hot Guitar Part 1

        The Mojo Man says: You’re holding a "fine frame, no parts lame" platter filled to the brim with boss gee-tar tunes from the golden age of music. It’s hard to stand still. All the cats conjugate to elucidate. Very different guitar styles from "slick" to "mean" and everything in between. This disc is loaded with hepcats from all fronts, mad aces in their places. 

        Reel Big Fish

        Everything Sucks

        This is Reel Big Fish's punchy ska-core debut, brass sections whip up a storm, quirky rhythms, grungy guitar and pithy lyrics. It's cool.
