Issue 40Available from WH Smith, Tesco, independent newsagents, Asda and Easons, in Issue 40 of Classic Pop we celebrate 30 years of Kylie Minogue with the ultimate celebration of the Princess of Pop’s career – from the PWL early days through to the iconic noughties classics and her new No.1 album, Golden. We also take an in-depth look at Kylie’s Fever for our Classic Album feature.

As a special treat for Kylie fans, we also have an exclusive limited edition special fan pack issue of the magazine available with four fantastic A4 glossy art cards of the star.

Elsewhere, we are granted a rare audience with the genius behind Scritti Politti, the mercurial Green Gartside, Classic Pop serves up our Top 15 sophisti-pop albums of all time and there’s a buyer’s guide to the wonderful Prefab Sprout in The Lowdown.

The issue is packed with great interviews including a chat with Kim Appleby about her latest small screen appearance and the prospect of new music; Sophie Ellis-Bextor talks to us about her new album of orchestral reworkings of her back catalogue and the mighty Daphne & Celeste return to the pop fray.

Our album reviews section features a surprising new collaboration between Sting and Shaggy, the new studio effort from CHVRCHES and an enticing live document of Alison Moyet’s recent Other tour. Classic Pop’s reissues section returns to John Foxx’s seminal solo debut Metamatic, The Human League’s Secrets from 2001 and we dig deep into Brian Eno’s expansive Music For Installations boxset. On the live front, we elbow our way to the front for gigs by Erasure, Morrissey, Paul Weller and Lloyd Cole.
