issue 32

The new issue of Classic Pop magazine is on sale now!

Available from WHSmith, Tesco, Waitrose, independent newsagents and Eason, this issue’s cover star is the remarkable Belinda Carlisle. We meet the iconic singer to look back on her punkish beginnings with The Go-Go’s, mark the 30th anniversary of her classic Heaven on Earth LP and chat about her first new album in 10 years, Wilder Shores.

Classic Pop also catches up with two iconic synth-pop bands – OMD tell us about their new record The Punishment of Luxury and a near-death experience plus we’re granted a very rare audience with the original Blancmange duo Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe.

The kings of quirky pop Sparks return with new long-player Hippopotamus – they’re on wonderful form once again in our extensive interview – and we also meet legendary producer John Leckie.

We take a look back at the career of INXS in our Lowdown feature and Michael Jackson’s Bad is this issue’s Classic Album.

Our packed reviews section includes the aforementioned new albums from OMD and Sparks plus Gary Numan and a superb comeback from LCD Soundsystem. We’ve also returned from the frontline to bring you gig reports for U2, Grace Jones, Chaka Khan and many more…
