Inside we've got a David Bowie feature, Johnny Marr, Cillian Murphy, Stereophonics, James Blake, Passenger and Gabrielle Aplin...
The new issue of Hot Press is now on shelves with a distinctively David Bowie feel.
In our Bowie feature Stuart Clark speaks to Gerry Leonard, Bowie's Irish right-hand man who reveals what it's like to work with a living legend and brings us behind the scenes of the new album. While Laura Sheeran, Ian Dempsey, Gavin Friday, Julie Feeney and Jerry Fish reveal their top ten Bowie essential songs.
We also catch up with Stereophonics, who after a four-year hiatus are back with a new album, and play two Irish shows this fortnight. Kelly Jones opens up about writing, fatherhood, and the tragic death of his former bandmate, Stuart Cable.
Elsewhere we speak to former Smiths man Johnny Marr, who discusses his debut solo record The Messenger and reveals how these days he's embracing a more clean-living lifestyle.
Also in this issue we speak to Cork actor Cillian Murphy for thr Hot Press Interview, while over in our new Music Nation section we catch up with Gretta Gunn, Passenger and Gabrielle Aplin.
Over in Frontlines, Adrienne Murphy continues her investigation into why water containing FLOURIDE is bad for Ireland's health, speaking once again to environmental scientist. We also talk to director Shimmy Marcus about his Lir documentary and catch up with BBC Radio 1 DJ Phil Taggart.
And this fortnight in Critical Mass we've reviewed albums by ASIWYFA, James Blake, Girls Names, Passenger and John Grant, and give live performances from Nick Cave, Lumineers, Everything Everything, Of Monsters & Men and The Killers the once over.
