In the latest Classic Pop Issue 74, our cover stars are Tears For Fears. We meet Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith to hear the remarkable story behind their comeback album, The Tipping Point..

Issue 74

Also back with a new record – and it’s an ambitious double album – is Johnny Marr who tells us about the epic Fever Dreams Pts 1-4, his Bond movie soundtrack and why he loves being a bohemian.

We put Bananarama’s back catalogue under the microscope for our Album By Album feature and gaze into our crystal ball to reveal what lies ahead for pop fans in 2022.

The returning Boo Radleys give us the lowdown on their own comeback LP and our classic album is The Cure’s stunning Wish.

We remember TV pop favourite Razzmatazz and serve up some unseen photos of Betty Boo causing carnage back in the day.

Brand new for this issue is our My Pop Life interview, Line of Duty star Craig Parkinson is in the hotseat and in the first of our sub-genre overviews, we look at the C86 scene.

Our reviews section is bigger than ever. This issue we check out new releases including the aforementioned Tears For Fears and Johnny Marr plus Soft Cell and Spiritualized while our expanded reissues section features Electribe 101, China Crisis, Paul Young, Linx and Sheena Easton.
