The FREE covermount CD, entitled “Paint It Black” features 15 tracks that illustrate mid-’60s rock’s turn to the weird, from The Yardbirds, The Seeds, 13th Floor Elevators, The Rationals and more.
Also in this issue: Miles Davis’s ’70s freak out (and new movie); Graham Nash opens up; Bob Mould on Hüsker Dü and after. Plus: PJ Harvey, Black Sabbath, The Last Shadow Puppets, Lovin’ Spoonful, Thomas Cohen, Adam & The Ants, White Denim, how to buy Earth, Wind And Fire, and XTC’s Andy Partridge on his idea of ‘heaven’: “Imagine your ex-missus bollocking you, for ever…”
