Available at WHSmith, Asda, Morrisons, Easons and independent newsagents, it’s an extra special occasion for us, too, as we celebrate going monthly. We’ve pulled out all the stops with a corker of an issue featuring an all-star cast. We meet the reunited Bananarama – now back as a trio with original member Siobhan Fahey returning to the fold after an absence of almost 30 years. For our cover feature, Paul Lester catches up for an in-depth and revelatory chat with Siobhan, Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward.

Classic Pop also talks to all three members of Take That as they traverse the country with their stunning Wonderland Tour. Gary, Howard and Mark talk to us about their new album, the spectacular stage show and plans for their 25th anniversary. Will the Robster make a reappearance once again? Read our feature to find out more…

Elsewhere, we count down our pick of the Top 40 girl groups of all time. Who makes our list, and who misses the cut?

Blondie’s co-founder Chris Stein talks us through 40 years of hit-making as the band re-enter the fray with new album Pollinator and we’re granted a very rare interview with another returning hero, The The’s Matt Johnson who gives us an insight into his collaborations with his sleeve designer brother, Andrew.

Bjork’s stunning Debut is given the once-over in our Classic Album spot and we drill down into the detail of the musical career of The Smiths for our comprehensive Lowdown feature.

We also talk to 80s legend Adam Ant as he revisits his Kings of the Wild Frontier album in his latest themed live show and take a look at Tom Sheehan’s beautiful photo book on The Cure.

Our reviews section is as packed as ever and features Gorillaz, Paul Weller, Erasure, Depeche Mode, Pet Sop Boys plus many more.

Enjoy the issue!
