UK Uncut Magazine January 2019: Jack White Fleetwood Mac Paul Weller Prince

UK Uncut Magazine January 2019 Brand New Condition

Jack White, Paul Weller, Elvis Costello, Stephen Malkmus, Courtney Barnett and more join our celebratory look back over the last 12 months

In these pages, you’ll find a comprehensive look back at our favourite albums, archive releases, films and books from the last 12 months. And to help us, we’ve invited some celebrated friends to offer their own thoughts on 2018 – including Jack White, Paul Weller, Courtney Barnett, Stephen Malkmus, Low and Mélissa Laveaux.

Meanwhile, our free, 15-track CD showcases the artists who have helped soundtrack our year – from Father John Misty to Ry Cooder, Cat Power to Rolling Blackouts, Ty Segall to Julia Holter. Elsewhere, we unearth the latest treasures from Neil Young’s archives, salute the return of Fleetwood Mac, preview some exclusive unseen Prince images and learn the ghoulish tale behind Bauhaus‘ “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”.

Oh, and I’d also like to introduce a new contributor – Elvis Costello, no less, who graciously offered to write his own Album By Album feature for us. Astonishingly, this piece also marks Elvis’ first major appearance in Uncut – a mere 260 issues down the line.

But I guess if I wanted to flam together some kind of positive concluding message about the year in music, I’d probably leave it instead to our cover star – Jack White. In an unusually frank and open interview with Peter Watts, White takes stock on his busy year. Along the way, he pauses to explain exactly what it is that keeps him going. “I’m not a pop star so I don’t have to come up with hits to stay alive,” he says. “I’m very glad I don’t have that sort of pressure, because that wouldn’t be interesting. I get to serve the song rather than any image. That’s something people might not know about me, but it’s always about the song. Whatever it takes to keep the song alive.”
