Roll up, roll up, for the latest in Uncut’s legendary and extravagant Ultimate Music Guides. This time, our subject is none other than Tom Waits – radical beatnik, one of the greatest singer-songwriters of the past 50 years, and a true American original. Once again, we’ve gone deep into the archives of NME, Melody Maker and Uncut to fish out the wildest and most surreal interviews with Waits, a man whose stories are every bit as good as his songs. And once you’ve learned that, among many other things, “A hero ain't nothing but a sandwich,” we’ve given our team of Waitsian scholars the job of reviewing anew all of his storied albums: every one an eccentric and compelling winner, is the verdict. Throw in the usual blend of rare pictures, discographies, a complete collectables guide and all manner of junkyard weirdness, and you’re left with Uncut’s Ultimate Music Guide to Tom Waits. Hoist that rag!

Oh I just don't know where to begin…" So sang Elvis Costello in 1979, opening one of his most enduring singles, "Accidents Will Happen". The best place to start investigations of this brilliant and complicated artist, though, is Uncut's latest Ultimate Music Guide: Elvis Costello. Inside, you'll find a wealth of old NME and Melody Maker features, printed in full for the first time in decades, that capture one of the most pointed British songwriters of the last four decades in full ferocious effect. "There's a lot of rock music that's become exclusive and it's of no use to anyone. Least of all me," Costello announced in his first Melody Maker interview, in 1977. "Music has to get to people. In the heart, in the head." From those first explosive salvos, up to the deeper and more exploratory albums of recent years, through raging polemics, superstar collaborations and esoteric detours, we've also written insightful new reviews of every single Costello album to help you through that labyrinthine back catalogue. Plus, there's the customary Ultimate Music Guide array of rare pictures, discographies, tall stories and meticulous research. It's the complete Costello magazine: our aim, rest assured, is true!

This year, Oasis’ first two albums – ‘Definitely Maybe’ and ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory? – have been reissued. Looking back now, and taking the current music scene into consideration, it’s hard to imagine how big, how culturally relevant and how all-conquering Oasis were from 1994 – 1996. In his new book about ‘Definitely Maybe’ for the 33 1/3 series, author Alex Niven sums it up like so: ‘Oasis wrote songs that came closer to narrating the collective hopes and dreams of a people than any other band in the last quarter century.’ They sold more albums than any other band. They played bigger gigs than any other band. They had more newspaper articles written about them than any other band. They were better than any other band. And this NME Collector’s Edition is an attempt to bottle up and present the wild spirit of the times: Liam’s charisma, Noel’s inability to write a bad song, the hope, optimism and chaos that followed the band. Over 100 pages it tells the story of every song they wrote, recorded and released during the time, delves into the NME, Melody Maker and VOX archives to pick out some classic interviews, and builds up to the peak of their career: playing to a quarter of a million people at Knebworth Park in August 1996. Liam Gallagher, Noel Gallagher, Paul ‘Guigsy’ McGuigan, Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs, Tony McCarroll and Alan White: you changed thousands of lives just by being you. Live forever.
