John Lennon is on the cover of the new issue of Uncut dated April 2019 and on sale from February 21. Inside, we look back at Lennon's momentous 1969 - with The Beatles' breaking-up, Lennon plans his next move. Join us for free jazz in Cambridge, rock’n’roll in Toronto and Peace And Love For Christmas; radical interventions, performance art and the amazing Plastic Ono Band. “He never said to me, ‘I’m doing this to blow up The Beatles,’” says one confidant. “But I felt that was what was happening.” Elswhere, Keith Richards recalls hairy times for the Rolling Stones and his solo debut, Talk Is Cheap. The reclusive English folk singer Anne Briggs talks about her brief but indelible career – and why it had to end so soon. Edwyn Collins opens up about his new album, Humble Pie's epic reign is celebrated and Lou Reed's '90s renaissance is revisited. There's James Brown, Jenny Lewis, Robert Forster, Judy Collins, Elton: The Movie, Patty Griffin and much more. Our free, 15-track CD showcases the month's best new music including Pond, Ex Hex, Hand Habits, Kel Asouf, Strand Of Oaks and Garcia Peoples.

Everyone loves music right? Hands up all of you who do… good, good. For anyone who doesn’t appreciate music (and I’m not being fussy here – from classical through rock to pop and hip-hop) I feel truly sorry for you, as you’re missing out on a wonderful experience.
Music can lift your spirits, push you to higher planes or even bring you down to earth with a bump. The person listening matters just as much as much as the musician – how you perceive, how you feel the music changes the experience. Imagine watching a movie where the musical cues are reversed – the hero is backed by sinister music, and the villain greeted by a triumphal chorus – and think just how strange it would feel.
