In another format breaking episode, we're jumping in the Delorean and rolling up into 1984. It's a completely different rock scene, with Heavy Pettin, Raven and Charon, although there's still a Deep Purple feature so we’re not exactly in uncharted territory. Also lots of Meat Loaf!
In a first (and probably last) we've got Prince on the cover, and a whopping great feature on him, which gives us a chance to gush over our favourite pint sized musical genius.
Also in the mag, acts like U2, The Alarm, Neil from The Young Ones and Phil Collins, proving that Kerrang was, at one point at least, a lot more diverse than we might have thought. I’m not sure The Moody Blues sit well here though.
In addition we’ve got the rock news, where we review seeing Busted live, and reveal which of the Can I Pod With Madness team was obsessed with Hanson in their teenage years. We also touch on The Children of Green Knowe, Shakin Stevens, Seven, sci-fi prog metal, American Psycho, swimming pool etiquette, Limahl, Police Academy, the conga, and Chris De Burgh: The Alan Partridge Years.
