The Fifth Uncut Playlist Of 2013: listen to MBV, The Knife, Arbouretum live...

Today’s looking like it might shape up as Stephen Stills day: as I write, we’re on track 16 (“Helplessly Hoping”) of his new career boxset, with 60-odd more to come.

Tread carefully.

Especially positive vibes, though, for the MV & EE live set among this week’s new entries, and for the mysterious Number Four, which I’ll hopefully be able to talk about soon…

Editor's Letter

Inside the new Uncut...

On the morning of July 29, 1966 Bob Dylan became distracted while out riding his Triumph motorbike. Writing about the incident later in Chronicles Volume 1, Dylan rather gnomically recalled, “I had been in a motorcycle accident and I’d been hurt, but I recovered.” Of course,...
