ISSUE 49 MAGAZINE & VINYL BUNDLE

In our Moogtastic new issue we take a look at how Dr Bobs famous early machines defined the sound of the 1970s. The tale of how Moog took hold in the States has been well told on our pages via the adventures of Paul Beaver and Bernie Krause, less known is the story of the British invasion. In our cover feature, we meet Mike Vickers, formerly of Manfred Mann, the proud owner of one of the first Moog IIICs to arrive on UK shores. Vickers was hired by The Beatles to help with the making of Abbey Road following which the synth genie was well and truly out of the bottle.

Elsewhere in our cover feature, we examine the influence of Moog and chart the under-the-radar connections that shaped the sound world of an entire generation. We take a trip from those first Moog adventures with Mike Vickers as our guide, we talk to KPM composers Alan Hawkshaw and Brian Bennett about the heyday of library music and discuss the lasting legacy of their work with Matt Berry who celebrates the classic TV theme tune.

Elsewhere, we meet Sheffields rather excellent International Teachers Of Pop, who does what their name promises, we tell the unheard story of Scottish synthpop almost-rans Secession and catch up with the trailblazing Ultramarine as they prepare to release an excellent new album.   

More? Youll find Stephen Mallinder telling us the tale behind Cabaret Voltaires epic Nag Nag Nag, Hacienda legend Graeme Park talks us through some of his favourite things in Under The Influence and we relive the birth of Pan Sonic in a Brixton backstreet club in the early 1990s in Time Machine.  
 
We start the year as we mean to go on by packing our Back section with reviews of the essential releases coming your way this month and filling up our Front section with all manner of synths, hi-fi, books, toys, gadgets and events thatll have you wondering how we do it. How do we do it? That would be telling.

Dont delay, our issues sell out faster than a fast thing. Ensure you dont miss out and secure your copy of Issue 49 right now. Oh and Happy New Year.

LIMITED EDITION SINGLE: ELECTRONIC COMPOSITIONS FROM THE KPM LIBRARY MUSIC ALBUM A MOOG FOR ALL REASONS

Taken from 1972s A Moog For All Reasons album recorded for the KPM music library, our limited edition seven-inch single features two tracks by Mike Vickers. Formerly of Manfred Mann, Vickers was transfixed by the idea of Robert Moogs magical machines and, without even having been near one, ordered a monstrously pricey IIIc modular, figured out what it could do and quickly became the go-to producer for your more adventurous artistes, working with The Beatles on Abbey Road.

“I did a lot of library music,” says Vickers, “but I became someone who went out for hire with the Moog. The next thing I knew I was in some studio or other, with someone wanting it to sound like strings or a French horn, which wasnt the way I wanted to think, I just wanted to play around with it.”

And play around he most certainly did. On the two extraordinary KPM tracks featured on our seven-inch, Vickers really was able to let his imagination run riot with the Moog. Example? The lead track on our seven-inch is The Adding Machine, an intense five minute Moog workout.

“I remember that,” says Vickers. “It was just one note and I gradually add more and more until its a huge jumble at the end. I was quite impressed with that one!”
