  1. Hi Andy. Thanks for the kind words about the CD! I've let Tom know... Sorry to hear about the skipping track. DM me your address and I'll see what I can do. Cheers!
  2. Hey folks, Subs copies are already arriving, I notice, but here is the first official reveal of our June 2021 issue. You might have gathered from the palaver on Friday around our Bob Dylan covers CD that we've gone big on Dylan's upcoming 80th birthday... and, indeed, we have. Our all-singing, all-dancing tribute is on sale from Thursday. There’s more, of course. Paul Weller, Marianne Faithfull, Can, Spiritualized, Field Music, UB40, Stephen Stills, The Strokes, Will Oldham, James, The National and My Bloody Valentine for starters... As ever, let us know what you think.
  3. Hi there. Can you drop me a line at michael dot bonner at uncut dot co dot uk and I'll see what I can do. Incidentally, I've edited your original message to remove your home address - while I think everyone on these boards is super friendly, it might be best not to post a residential address on a public forum. Thanks!
  4. Hey folks, A heads up for you all: we're about to announce our the CD that will accompany our next issue. Called Dylan Revisited, it includes 14 brand new covers of Dylan songs recorded exclusively for Uncut alongside one, previously unreleased Dylan track. There's Richard Thompson, Cowboy Junkies, The Weather Station, Low, Frazey Ford, The Flaming Lips, Brigid Mae Power and many, many others. We humbly think it's one of our finest CDs - we hope you like it too. You can find more info about it here - http://bit.ly/uncutdylan2021 - and we'll reveal the full issue conte
  5. Some of you might have gathered what was afoot from my none-too-subtle Playlist post last week, but here's the first official look at our next cover: The Velvet Underground. In UK shops from Thursday, or you can order one from us here: bit.ly/velvetsuncut
  6. So in preparation for the new issue of Uncut - more on this Exploding Publishing Inevitable coming next week - here's a playlist of The Velvet Underground deep cuts to see you through the weekend. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3xD0012eDxbRZ5v6lmIP9C?si=V2w5DiITQ6OUz5XrsSPPLA
  7. Hey folks, For anyone who missed the original RSD pressing of our wonderful Wilco covers CD, a red vinyl edition is now available while stocks last.. You can find it here: https://www.juno.co.uk/search/?q[title][]="wilcovered+(reissue)"&hide_forthcoming=0 and here: https://www.roughtrade.com/gb/various-artists/wilcovered/lp-plus-x2
  8. Hey, @Matt Keenan and @Pádraig, I mailed you both Weather Station CDs yesterday. Hopefully, they should be with you sometime next week - maybe the end of the week for yours, @Pádraig. Thanks, folks!
  9. Hi @Zeno. You should have received the Weather Station CD. Can you DM me, please? Thanks!
  10. Hey @Jim Beers, @Matt Keenan, @Aleksandar Somogyi. Sorry to hear you didn't receive the Weather Station CD with your subs copy this month. I've relayed this to our fulfilment house, who handle subscriptions. The good news is that I have a small stash here... so if you'd like to DM me with your addresses, I'll pop a copy in the post to each of you. Apologies again.
  11. Squeeze is a funny one, for sure. I'm not making any grand claims for it, mind; but it's one of many strange and compelling footnotes that comprise the post-Lou/Sterling years. You may be surprised to learn that there are two post-Lou/Sterling line-ups, including one that features no original members of the band... But critically, I think the 3rd album and Loaded are both brilliant records. Astonished, too, at the 'unreleased' material on VU, like Ocean. An amazing creative patch.
  12. Morning folks, Not sure if everyone's seen this, but Entertainment Weekly have run an interview with Todd Haynes, previewing his Velvet Underground doc: https://ew.com/movies/todd-haynes-velvet-underground-documentary-first-look/ Has this whetted your appetite at all..? I'm not alone in noticing that the focus of Haynes' doc seems to be the Nico/Cale/Warhol years - one of our writers (and a VU expert), Tyler Wilcox posted on Twitter last night that he feels the Doug Yule years will be "diminished" in Haynes' doc. Anyone else feel strongly that the Yule period (3rd albu
  13. Hey folks, Apologies for the shameless bit of promo, but here's our first issue of Uncut of 2021! Join us, as we journey from Sutton to Eritrea in pursuit of Leonard Cohen's strange and compelling 1970s. Also inside you'll find The Clash, an amazing interview with Sonny Rollins, The Black Keys, Kraftwerk, Jane Weaver, Arab Strap, Bootsy Collins, Alice Cooper and plenty more besides. Please shop responsibly and order a copy for free UK home delivery from us here: https://bit.ly/38BEqfT And of course, we'd love to hear what you think of the issue when you've had a chance to read i
  14. So the news is polarising opinion in our Twitter feed this evening. Everything from “Cannot wait for this!!! 👍” to “How much more can they wring out of this half of a one trick pony? Barely a smudge in the timeline of music history.“ What do you all think of it here..? And here’s a link to our original story in case you missed it... https://www.uncut.co.uk/news/danny-boyle-to-direct-new-six-part-sex-pistols-biopic-129131/
  15. Hopefully, some of you might have already got wind of this... but all print subscribers will receive a lovely and exclusive Weather Station CD with the next issue of Uncut, in addition to their regular free CD. A thank you, from us to you, for your patience and loyalty during the last year. Here's to a better 2021!
