In the latest issue we have a world exclusive with INXS about the forthcoming Michael Hutchence documentary Mystify and hear how their legendary 1991 Wembley Stadium show is about to hit cinemas in the form of a revamped Live Baby Live release.

Elsewhere, we chat to Five Star’s Denise Pearson about the latest chapter in the group’s history and meet director Tim Pope to shine a light on his game-changing music videos for The Cure, Soft Cell, Talk Talk and more. We also interview 80s icon Kid Creole as he launches a new record label and take an in-depth album-by-album look at the back catalogue of the imperious Grace Jones.

Black Box’s Daniele Davoli takes us inside the controversial story of Ride On Time and Berlin’s Terri Nunn tells us about the band’s latest studio LP, Transcendance.

Our classic album this month is Janet Jackson’s game-changing Control and we look at the early years of Depeche Mode as the band recovered from the exit of Vince Clarke.

On the reviews front, we run our critical eye over new releases including The Lilac Time, Liam Gallagher, Simple Minds, Elbow and Mika while in our packed reissues section there’s reviews of OMD, Mel and Kim, Haircut 100, The Specials, Prince, Midge Ure, A-ha, Marc Almond and much more.

For live reviews, we check out Pet Shops Boys’ latest theatrical show Musik and elbow our way to the front for gigs by Edwyn Collins and Salt n’ Pepa before finishing the festival season at Victorious, Towersey and Paredes de Coura.
