In the bumper 108-page new issue of Classic Pop, our cover stars are The Associates­ – we take a trip inside their remarkable career and majestic album Sulk with Alan Rankine, Michael Dempsey and producer Mike Hedges.

Issue 75We also meet xPropaganda’s Susanne Freytag and Claudia Brücken to hear about their stunning comeback LP The Heart Is Strange and try to keep up with the mile-a-minute mind of Dave Stewart who reveals all about his ambitious new solo project Ebony McQueen.

Janet Jackson’s back catalogue goes under the microscope for our Album By Album feature and we also delve into the myths surrounding Talk Talk’s enigmatic frontman Mark Hollis. Elsewhere, we meet David Joseph, the man behind the Hollis-influenced Held By Trees plus 80s icon Daryl Hall who talks us through his new solo compilation.

George Michael’s Older is this issue’s Classic Album and we check out what’s in store on the live music front this summer with our 2022 Festival Guide. We also meet EMF’s James Atkin and get ethereal with our look at Dreampop.

Our comprehensive reviews section features new albums from xPropaganda, Liam Gallagher, Wet Leg, Dubstar and The Waterboys, while our expanded reissues section includes The Associates and solo Billy Mackenzie, Sparks, Rick Astley, The Police and Kraftwerk.
