Blitzed Issue 14

With the release of a new Blitz Club compilation album curated by Rusty Egan, we have an exclusive interview with Rusty himself as we explore the Blitz Club’s vital legacy.


We also meet the Queen of Stiff herself, as Lene Lovich’s musical history is showcased in a new box set focussing on her Stiff Records period. Blitzed also catches up with Neil Arthur of Blancmange, and we speak to Martin McAloon on Prefab Sprout’s legacy.


Musician and composer Dave Formula was involved with both Magazine and Visage in their day, Blitzed speaks to the man directly. The new issue also features interviews with power-pop outfit The Priscillas and veteran singer-songwriter Judie Tzuke.


The new Blitzed also celebrates some notable album anniversaries, which includes David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs, Thompson Twins’ Into The Gap, The Style Council’s Café Bleu, The Smiths’ eponymous 1984 debut and Nik Kershaw’s Human Racing.


Plus, we look at imagined futures with our special feature on songs from the New Wave era that could have been singles. In reviews, we look at album releases from David Bowie, Blancmange, Allie X, Blow Monkeys, The Speed of Sound, Miracle Mile and more.


In Blitzed live reviews, we report back from performances by OMD, Wolfgang Flür, Peter Duggal, Tiny Magnetic Pets, Rick Astley, Little Finger, Tin Gun and Donovan Silver. We also review Helen O’Hara’s music memoir on life in Dexys Midnight Runners.


All this plus our regular columns, reviews and features. Keep it Blitzed!
