The new issue, out Wednesday, has a very positive review of the album on page 90, while on p107 he is this month's 'Personal Shopper' where he recommends all sorts of loveliness to spend your hard earned on.

Yay! I've become a bit of a fan of 'Word' since picking up my first issue last month. And it helps that they like Neil, of course!

Get a subscription! £30 for whole year, plus free gift. When I did it, it was the double CD of Aladdin Sane. Think it's a Motown story DVD this month.

That alone is worth the subscription.

Indeed, was going to subscribe anyway, but the offer sent me dashing home like a fool to make sure I was one of the first 100 who could have it. Curiously, the year before, when I began my subscription to Mojo, the freebie was the double of the 30th anniversary Ziggy.

I remember when he did Adam and Joe's 'Vinyl Police'.. That was ace!

Dang. What next? 'Diamond Dogs' with the *gasp* original cover reproduced?
I'd be scrambling like a mad dog for that one.

PS. Going to see Bowie in concert in May. Yay. 4th time I think.

There was a short piece in the Mojo Bowie special about those 30th anniversary reissues. They said they were going to do more of them, but I can't remember if Diamond Dogs was going to be one of them. It would be if there was any justice. Though the same issue had "Sweet Thing / Candidate" really high in the list of all time best Bowie songs, which I agree wholeheartedly with.

It will be Diamond Dogs next. The article featured an interview with the EMI catalogue boss, Nigel Reeve, who said that Dogs would be next and that he hopes to do Stage, David Live and (rather fabulously) The Buddha of Suburbia in the near future. Not a bad magazine that, the mojo special. Though, not quite as comprehensive as the Q REM special.

That was a random guess on my part; the 'Diamond Dogs' mention.
It just seemed like the next logical choice from where I sit, and perhaps a bit of wishful thinking too. I need to subscribe.

Yep. I'll miss the Spree by 9 days. No robes that night.

Alfie-------> Smile on the autobiographical book title, and then Flips addition to it.
I haven't posted on your congrats thread, so I'm just saying it here. Congrats. I dare not forget you my child.

Firstly, I suspect the issue won't be out until Thursday actually. That said, shops like HMV and Virgin tend to shove their music mags on the shelf as soon as they get them cos they receive them early as they don't have such regular dealings with newsagenty people.
Secondly, may I suggest that if the Stereophonics are appearing as support you arrive after they have taken their trogladyte noise away, and left the rest of the audience sapped of all enthusiasm for music, if not life?

Got 'Word' today. Nice little review that! And a big fat full-page ad for Absent Friends. Lovely.
