Lost & Found: Soul Mining by The The


When the musical history books are written, The The – Matt Johnson’s arthouse indie group – will largely be remembered for the album that introduced them to the masses, 1986 opus Infected. However, it’s that album’s predecessor, the band’s 1983 debut Soul Mining, that stands up to repeated listening. There’s a freshness and delicacy to [...]

Rewind Up North


We’ve just returned from the last Rewind of the year and the first Rewind North, which took place at Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire the weekend before last. The highlights? Billy Ocean closed day one, but the real climax came just before with a short but suitably theatrical set from Marc Almond. Other highlights from the [...]

Think Out Loud

We were so busy finishing off our latest issue that we forgot to make a fanfare of our second birthday! Classic Pop is officially two years old, and we’re celebrating by taking stock and pausing for thought. In other words, asking you what you think of the magazine, what you’d like to see more of [...]
