This month in Uncut!

The new issue of Uncut, which hits shelves today (July 27), features Joe Strummer, Captain Beefheart, Bob Dylan and Animal Collective.

Strummer is on the cover, and inside is the story of the late Clash legend’s secret history – the wilderness years between the end of his group and his final creative rebirth.

Captain Beefheart’s whole story is told by The Magic Band, while Bob Dylan’s live show at Hop Farm is reviewed and Animal Collective talk us through their back catalogue.

Elsewhere, The Making Of… looks at the creation of M|A|R|R|S’ “Pump Up The Volume”, Uncut spends time with the Chris Robinson Brotherhood and Mark Knopfler, and The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne answers your questions.

The expansive 41-page reviews section features Ry Cooder, Elton John, The Kinks, Bill Fay, Conor Oberst, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti and Ride, and films and DVDs including Homeland, Art Will Save The World and Berberian Sound System.

John Fogerty and Paul Simon are reviewed in the live section, and books including When Ziggy Played Guitar by Dylan Jones and Wilko Johnson’s Looking Back At Me are rated.

The free CD features tracks from Ry Cooder, Dirty Projectors, Sam Lee, Bill Fay and more.

The new issue is out now.
