New MOJO magazine Issue #346 (September 2022) out now.
COVER STORY: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN‘s 50 greatest songs. Entrapment and escape, love and betrayal, murder and mayhem, cars and girls: all human life encapsulated by a force of nature and his Swiss Army band. Plus: Springsteen Alone – Nebraska at 40 by David Fricke.
DEXYS MIDNIGHT RUNNERS: It’s 40 years since Too-Rye-Ay, the Celtic soul-pop milestone that was a double-edged sword for mainman Kevin Rowland. But have the wounds finally healed?
ELVIS PRESLEY: As Panto Presley hits the screens, the King comes to life in the jaw-dropping photographs of Alfred Wertheimer. MOJO gets first dibs from a new book.
DANNY THOMPSON: Punch-ups with John Martyn. Pub sessions with Nick Drake. On the bus with Roy Orbison. Sixty-odd years of low-end high jinks with the British bass master.
BURNING SPEAR: Last standing of the roots originals, reggae’s wise one grants a rare audience. “I don’t deal with colourism, nationality, or religion,” he reminds David Katz.
JOAN JETT: The Runaways derailed at their peak, but their ever-stubborn guitarist has forged on – to the delight of Riot Grrrls, Nirvana and The Goddess Of Rock.
DANGER MOUSE & BLACK THOUGHT: The über-producer with feet in the Black Keys and Kiwanuka camps gets down with the Roots’ revered rapper. Voilà! Hip hop like mutha used to make.
PROCOL HARUM: How Guy Stevens, J.S. Bach and a drug dealer’s cat paved the way for A Whiter Shade Of Pale. And how angst over attributions drove them apart.
