It’s been scientifically proven it’s not possible to make great music if you have hair stuck above your top lip. The penny seems to have dropped at Shindig! this month who’ve had a smart revamp and the new issue is the most mod friendly for ages: articles/interviews with The Birds, The Remains and The Purple Hearts, an in-depth look at Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush, half a million reviews and barely a moustache in sight. That would be enough in itself but it now comes with a Happening! supplement focusing on current bands and events to keep things moving forward. Plus – there’s more – a 21 track download (Mojo take note) featuring the likes of the Len Price 3, The Fallen Leaves and Race Horses. The best music magazine just got better.

Increasingly available from better stocked newsagents or see, priced £4.95.


  1. Ooo I'd better keep my eyes peeled! Still haven't digested the last issue w/ Lee Hazelwood & Nancy! Purple Hearts AND The Birds? Priceless!

  2. Further proof that Enfield is a cultural desert - almost a week on and still not in Smiths. Had to get it in town again.
