The 27th Uncut Playlist Of 2014

The 27th Uncut Playlist Of 2014
John Mulvey

A bit of a manic week, for various reasons, not least the fact that we've finished two magazines: the next issue of Uncut, which should be coming your way on July 29; and an Ultimate Music Guide dedicated to the genius of…

Tom Waits! More about all that in the next few days. In the meantime, here are the records, tracks and so on that have kept us going this week. Special attention: a new Hiss Golden Messenger video; a free Tim Hecker download; Mary Lattimore, Purling Hiss and a track from the wonderful Steve Gunn. Can't wait to share some of this Chris Forsyth album with you…

Editor's Letter

Robert Wyatt interviewed: "I'm not a born rebel..."

Today (January 28, 2015), social media reliably informs me that Robert Wyatt is 70, which seems a reasonable justification for reposting this long and, I hope, interesting transcript of an interview I did with him at home in Louth back in 2007, a little before the marvellous “Comicopera” was...
