If you’ve ever wondered what happened to acid house trailblazer and super-producer/DJ Tim Simenon, well, we’ve got the answer this month. We tracked down the Bomb The Bass man to Prague where up until recently he’d been running a bistro.

And Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas in Classic Pop land without a smattering of Band Aid. This time, we’ve updated the story to look at the follow-ups to the iconic 1984 single.

We’ve also got our traditional writers’ pick of the finest releases of new albums, reissues and more throughout the past year to ensure your 2019 overview is bang up-to-date.

We take a deep dive into the world of New Order for our regular album by album feature and speak to former Everything But The Girl mainstay Ben Watt about his superb new solo album, Storm Damage.

Public Enemy’s Chuck D called it the greatest hip-hop LP of all time – we put on our Adidas to take a look at Run-DMC’s game-changing Raising Hell for our latest Classic Album feature.

On the reviews front, Classic Pop runs its critical eye over new releases including Louise, Harry Styles, Courteeners, Bombay Bicycle Club and Gabrielle Aplin while our packed reissues section features Supergrass, Phil Collins, The Go-Betweens, Mick Jagger, Elton John, The Durutti Column and much more.

For our live reviews, we catch the sensational London date on Björk’s Cornucopia tour plus the latest shows by Adam Ant and The Chemical Brothers.
