Hello Tumblr people! Here’s our latest issue, celebrating the life and times of the great Johnny Cash, ten years after his sad passing. The free CD, Johnny Cash… And Friends, shares the genius of The Man In Black on tracks by Jerry Lee Lewis, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Willie Nelson, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Townes Van Zandt and many more. Also: Janelle Monae’s sci-fi R&B revolution; Roy Harper on madness, rebellion and cricket; The Smiths Unseen. PLUS! Charles Bradley, Wilko Johnson, an audience with Amy Winehouse’s amazing vintage jukebox and albums from Arctic Monkeys, Bill Callahan, Haim, Manic Street Preachers, Elton John and more.
The new issue of MOJO commemorates the 20th Anniversary of In Utero, Nirvana’s final, splenetic studio album and comes with a free CD, Sub Pop Silver Jubilee, celebrating 25 years of Nirvana’s legendary original label, starring Mudhoney, The U-Men, Low, J Mascis, Daughn Gibson, Shabazz Palaces and Pissed Jeans – the cream of Seattle and beyond.
Also in the issue: The Beatles Help! escapade; Elvis Costello’s collaboration with The Roots; Peter Gabriel’s designs on Dolly Parton; and albums from Goldfrapp, Franz Ferdinand, Devo, Chic and Nilsson. And there’s more. Much more…
What rotten news. George Jones, one of the greatest voices in country music, has died at the age of 81. Take a listen to the title track from one of his greatest albums, the devastatingly beautiful A Picture Of Me (Without You). RIP.
