Yesterday’s kids, today’s legends

The Jam’s Setting Sons was released 35 years ago. It marked a turning point in the band’s career where it became clear their impact would last. But they had faced a fight to get the record heard. Tim Peacock talks to key figures in the making of an album that sounds every bit as vital today 1978 was arguably the most turbulent year of The Jam’s decade-long career. The poor reception …




Spacemen 3 made indie music with a hint of the Velvets, a heap of hallucinogens, and an almost religious fervour. Too intense to last, in absentia the band is loved more than ever. Ian Shirley plays with fire… "I wish we didn’t have to do this interview,” Peter Kember, aka Sonic Boom, told a Melody Maker journalist in March 1989. “I wish we could just sit around and …

BOOK REVIEW From Issue 434

GEORGE HARRISON - The Apple Years 1968-75

Comprehensive early works by George In the wake of The Dark Horse Years, praise be for the emergence of its tastier companion, The Apple Years, a 7CD box set with a bonus DVD and book. (The albums are also available individually, all bar one with a sprinkling of bonus tracks.) Firstly, it’s heartening to see 1968’s Wonderwall Music and (the bonus-less) Electronic Sounds reappearing: …
