Issue 65 PDF
This month’s Electronic Sound cover feature celebrates the amazing history of electronic music over the last 75 years, using 75 key records as stepping stones to take us from 1945 to 2020. It’s a hefty read – around 25,000 words – but in 75 easy-to-digest pieces.
John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Wendy Carlos, Suzanne Ciani, Brian Eno, Stevie Wonder, Jean-Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk, Donna Summer, Gary Numan, The Human League, New Order, Phuture, Orbital, Aphex Twin, LCD Soundsystem, Factory Floor and Hannah Peel are among our 75 picks, but we also have a few surprises along the way. Does anybody know where Pete Townshend comes into this story? OK, how about ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’?
Elsewhere this issue, we have interviews with Sparks, Simon Fisher Turner, Ghostpoet, A Certain Ratio, Nikmis, JG Thirlwell and Hattie Cooke. Hattie is one of the artists on the superb 14-track CD we’re bundling with this month’s magazine. There’s lots more inside the issue, of course, including all the latest new album reviews and our regular columnists Jack Dangers, Kris Needs and Fat Roland. Get your copy now!
