The Pretty Things and the Small Faces the our two cover stories this time. In the most revealing interview he's ever given, Phil May spills his guts about his fractured childhood, life as a teenage art school outsider and the first hell-raising year of the Pretty Things. Plus: an exclusive chapter from Phil's upcoming autobiography. Not only but also... The Small Faces: there are fabulous interviews with Ian McLagan and the late, great Steve Marriott. Also big features on 60s pop-psych songsmiths Carter & Gilbert and the Rainy Daze, Texas garage heroes Thursday's Children, California cult pop sensations The Hitmakers, Cyril Jordan's memories of 1967, and an exclusive interview with the elusive Julian Covey a.k.a. Philamore Lincoln. And there are also thrilling conclusions of the serials on The Haunted and The Radiators From Space, European beat group scoops on The Loosers and the JocoDev Sextett, LA punks The Gears, and even the pre-'Kung Fu Fighting' mod-soul years of Carl Douglas. Not to forget the extensive review sections covering all the latest reissues, rock'n'roll books and DVDs.
