Leonard Cohen – in depth – on UNCUT magazine’s website

November 19, 2008
UNCUT magazine has a Leonard Cohen feature although, unlike the current MOJO, Lenny doesn’t grace the cover (Paul Weller does).

Stealing a march on its great rival, UNCUT has cleverly used the out-takes from the interviews with Cohen associates for a series of traffic-building bonus articles on its website.

Recommended.

Leonard Cohen celebrated in new MOJO

As Leonard Cohen prepares for the next leg of his triumphant world tour, the new (“December”) issue of MOJO, the London-based heritage rock monthly, has an impressive 11-page feature on the great poet-musician. Recommended.

Most of it’s taken up by a probing new interview and a buyer’s guide to the Cohen discography, both by Sylvie Simmons.

MOJO also has a Lenny cover – a recent portrait complete with grey goatee beard and rakish peaked cap – and a free CD of new covers of Cohen songs.

(The US edition apparently has a Metallica cover, lending support to the line peddled here that the US doesn’t really get Laughing Len as much as Europe – or Canada.)

MOJO the most grown-up rockpop mag in 2008 first half

June 11, 2008

MOJO, Uncut and The Word, the three London-based rockpop magazines, occasionally cover music for grown-ups, though only about 20% of their content – mainly their cover features – is of interest to this website.

 

In the first half of 2008, MOJO has had the most grown-up covers – five out of a possible six.  Its covers have featured Radiohead, Mozza, Stones, Paul Weller and the Sex Pistols.

 

UNCUT has had four grown-up covers: Dylan, Stones, Led Zep and Bowie.  While, so far in 2008, The Word has had three: Mozza, Elvis Costello and Radiohead.

 

It’s a reversal of the tally for the whole of 2007, which was headed by The Word, with 9 covers, followed by UNCUT (8) and MOJO (a mere 5 covers).
