First of all, heartfelt thanks for all your kind words about our Bowie memorial special issue. They were very much appreciated by all of us here at Uncut; I don’t recall a response quite like it during my time at the mag. If you haven’t been able to find a copy yet, there are plenty still available in the Uncut online store, along with copies of our Bowie Ultimate Music Guide, our new Byrds Ultimate Music Guide, sundry volumes of the History Of Rock, and God knows what else, to be honest.

Moving on, though, it occurred to me today that, for various strong reasons, I haven’t posted a playlist yet this year. To try and remedy that, here are a bunch of records I’ve been listening to this past month (There were a lot of Bowie records played as well, obviously, including “Blackstar” daily, but I’ve left those out).
