Stevie Chick When not helping to raise the world’s tiniest Joanna Newsom obsessive, Stevie has been trying to replicate the Meg White pizza mentioned in his Raconteurs feature (p42); the secret (whisper it) is high-grade Parmesan. His book Foo Fighters: The Band That Dave Made is published by Palazzo this autumn. Jeffrey Lewis Acclaimed indie-rock songwriter and comix artist (see Lead LP illo p87) Lewis began recording home-made cassettes in New York City in 1998, and signed to Rough Trade in 2001. Many albums and comix later, Jeffrey’s band still tours regularly. Paul Trynka One-time MOJO editor Paul Trynka first saw Prince in 1987, and witnessed many landmark performances. This month he assesses a posthumous collection from the fabled Prince vaults – and also appears on the MOJO Innovators Podcast, discussing David Bowie, drawing on…

a third man records anthology

01 THE GREENHORNES Saying Goodbye The Cincinnati garage heroes were a key inspiration to Jack White, and their crack rhythm section would become half of The Raconteurs. Logical, then, that The Greenhornes’ 2010 reunion album would find a home at Third Man – kicked off by this crunchy, Who-like anthem. (Fox, Lawrence, Keeler) published by Each Hit Below Me Music (BMI) & Domino Publishing ℗ &©Third Man Records, LLC, from the album ★★★★ (Third Man Records); https:// thirdmanstore.com/bands/the-greenhornes/the-greenhornes 02 JACK WOOD Born To Wander Record collectors by instinct, the Third Man crew gave a deserved reissue to this 1966 rave-up recorded at Great Lakes Studios in Michigan. Only 100 copies of this garage rock/Northern soul curio were originally pressed by Wood on his short-lived Lawrence label; the last one to surface on Discogs sold for a…

all back to my place

Peter Perrett STILL THE ONLY ONE What music are you currently grooving to? Mostly to music made between 1964 and 1969. I’m quite particular. Having said that, I do listen to stuff like Courtney Barnett, but only because she sounds like the old days. What, if push comes to shove, is your all-time favourite album? It would have to be [Bob Dylan’s] Highway 61 Revisited or Blood On The Tracks. I don’t think I could choose between them though – that’d be like Sophie’s Choice. What was the first record you ever bought? And where did you buy it? I bought the first Rolling Stones album when I was 12, but I was so disappointed with it. The only track I liked was Tell Me! I’d been given a record voucher for Christmas and I…

theories, rants, etc.

ESCAPISM, AS ANY BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN scholar will tell you, is not without consequences. On Hello Sunshine, the first single from Springsteen’s remarkable new album, he sings of lonely towns and empty streets, about how he “always liked that empty road/No place to be and miles to go.” But freedom is complicated: “Miles to go,” he notes reflectively, “is miles away.” This month, MOJO’s David Fricke takes a long road trip into the American wilderness, and into the psyche of Bruce Springsteen, as Western Stars heralds a dramatic new phase in this most epic of careers. There is widescreen romance, and human fallibilities, and plenty of insights from Springsteen and those closest to him. Plus, we have amazing interviews with The Raconteurs, Madonna and the survivors of Trout Mask Replica; a rarities-packed…

who were you

“Bonehill’s group were arrested after leaving a fake bomb on an underground train.” THE WHO BRING their symphonic Moving On! tour to Wembley Stadium this month, in advance of their highly-anticipated twelfth album. The distant roots of this latest chapter can be gleaned in these previously unpublished, circa-1962 photographs of Pete Townshend and several of his fellow Ealing art school students on assignment in the streets of west London. Of unknown provenance, the pictures were given to MOJO by ex-Ealing art student Liz Fenn, who rediscovered them years later in a filing cabinet. In one, Townshend waits outside a telephone box in which an upside-down student makes a call; in another, his group feign public unconsciousness. “The students had been told to go out into Ealing and make something happen,” Townshend’s art…
