In the latest issue of Classic Pop, we meet Haircut 100 for an exclusive interview ahead of their 2023 reunion and the deluxe reissue of debut album Pelican West as they reveal all about lessons learned in the pop spotlight.

Elsewhere, Neville Staple and Lynval Golding pay an emotional tribute to Terry Hall as we examine his legacy and work with Fun Boy Three. We also profile Robert Palmer and argue the case for him being one of his era’s most underrated singer-songwriters.

Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth take us inside their time in Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club plus The Blow Monkeys’ Dr Robert explains how having great cheekbones isn’t always what’s it’s cracked up to be.

The back catalogue of Kylie Minogue goes under the microscope for our in-depth album-by-album feature and we give Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s second studio LP Liverpool some much-needed love.

Warm Leatherette by Grace Jones is our latest classic album and we also serve up our selection of the Top 20 pre-stardom tracks for artists before they burst onto the world stage.

Our comprehensive reviews section features new releases and reissues including U2, Gorillaz, The Bluebells, John Foxx, Haircut 100, Robert Palmer, a-ha and Madness.
