Issue 61 / November 2015 - OUT NOW!




Double trouble, double whammy, double the fun. Our November 2015 issue is a 2-in-1 extravaganza; two covers, two sides and two editorials. Read from Side A and you’ll find mythical Liverpool garage band THE STAIRS on board their weed bus heading into the Mersey sunset; read from Side AA and you’ve got legendary father of all things synth and disco GIORGIO MORODER, moustached waxed and perm primed; flip it over halfway through with Tom Bell's trippy stream of consciousness report from the upside down world of Psych Fest. While Jamie Bowman caught up with The Stairs ahead of the release of their previously long-lost player to discuss cult status and reformations, Austin Wilde spoke Studio 54 with Moroder and details the impresario’s impact on disco and popular culture. Two quality sides to put any aspiring popsters to shame.

Spanning across these two sides, there’s plenty to delight as we head into cold November nights: Christopher Torpey travels to West Kirby to meet the polymathous musician and producer BILL RYDER-JONES and explore the influences behind his latest album, while Bethany Garrett navigates the strange world of TVAM – the Wigan musician who records his music onto VHS with visuals to match and showcases these by way of wheel-on television in his live performances. In our Q&A with cult US psych-popper KELLEY STOLTZ ahead of his 24 Kitchen Street gig, Richard Lewis chats to the NorCal based musician about writing new material, disciplining himself to produce other bands, and the Bay Area’s struggle with gentrification. In our Music For Empty Spaces feature, we speak to musicians who have composed pieces inspired by unused or changing spaces across the city, in response to the programme run by Radio Merseyside’s Roger Hill, which aims to draw attention to and re-think some of these places. Lastly Stuart Miles O’Hara speaks to Ivan Mitin, the founder of Ziferblat, about the ideas behind the new creative space in the Albert Dock. 

Our hard grafting team of reviewers were out covering the best gigs in town: TAME IMPALA’s Tuebrook takeover and THE POLYPHONIC SPREE’s stint at Arts Club are featured, along with DIY’s Neu Tour featuring THE BIG MOON. Interspersed with PEACE, THE BOHICAS and FIESTA BOMBARDA, we have reviews of experimental outfit XIU XIU playing the music of Twin Peaks, Lizzie Nunnery’s play NARVIK, and plenty more. There's also the usual array of news, previews and guest columns stuffed inside this double delight of pink pages to keep you twice as entertained for a month, until we spin it out all over again.
