NEW! UGLY THINGS #28
Ships mid/late March 2009
208 rock’n’roll-packed pages!
Our big-name cover stories this time around include an exclusive interview with Trevor Burton of The Move, featuring lots of wickedly cool and rare photos. Also, a feature on Roky Erickson’s pre-psychedelic adventures in Austin with The Spades, along with a big feature review on the upcoming 13th Floor Elevators 10-CD box set. Plus the great but terminally neglected Dave Clark Five, including interviews with Dave Clark, Lenny Davidson and producer Adrian Kerridge.
Sixties garage rock predominates as always with stories on The Good Feelins, The Daughters of Eve, The Boy Blues, The Living Children and TV’s Shindogs featuring the late Delaney Bramlett. We also reveal the strange but true tales of ‘70s Parisian proto-punks Angel Face, the Northwest’s once mysterious New Dawn, hard rockers Troyka, and New York cult underground heroes Hackamore Brick. Not to mention the bizarre saga of Philippe Debarge, the millionaire French playboy who made an amazing 1969 psych album with The Pretty Things.
And that’s not all… Jon Savage takes a look at the History of Rock Fanzines, Aaron Milenski gives us 50 Reasons Not to Hate the Synthesizer, and of course there’s our extensive review section, covering all the latest reissues and music-related books and DVDs.
