The new issue of rock ‘n roll mag Vive Le Rock (No 76) is out now and it’s full of features on recent Cherry Red releases.
Off the back of the deluxe reissue, Mark McStea meets Sigue Sigue Sputnik’s Tony James and discovers that if you’ve got it, Flaunt It!
The release of the comprehensive five disc boxset encompassing The Boys’ productive period on the Safari label provided Vive Le Rock’s Dick Porter with a perfect excuse to ask band stalwarts Matt Dangerfield and Casino Steel about how it all went down.
With the recent release of the Shellshock Rock boxset celebrating Northern Ireland’s contribution to punk, Dermot Campbell digs deep into the coming together of band’s that led to 1980’s Belfast Punk Rock Festival.
Alongside these excellent features are reviews of everything from Jim Bob’s recent charting album Pop Up Jim Bob, Pere Ubu’s live album By Order Of Mayor Pawlicki (Live In Jarocin), Jah Wobble’s In Dub II and the storming No Future Complete Singles collection, amongst many more!
