Venture into the slipstream!
Available now: a lavish celebration of one of rock’s most “moody, unpredictable, perverse, often downright wilful” visionaries. Uncut’s latest Ultimate Music Guide untangles the wild tale of Van Morrison, from fiery garage rock beginnings with Them, to the canonical high of Astral Weeks. From fervid sessions in Woodstock and California, through the mystical quests of the ’80s and beyond, into less feted but equally rewarding territory.
We’ve investigated every Van album anew, and rediscovered volatile old interviews from the archives of NME, Melody Maker and Uncut. Pieced together, they build up to a complete portrait of a man apart, unstinting of vision, and blessed with a voice like no other.
