Roger Waters interview and Pink Floyd exhibition feature in Uncut Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Tuesday, 16 May 2017

Uncut magazine, cover date July 2017The new issue of the UK's Uncut magazine (cover date July 2017) arrives in UK shops on Thursday, and in due course will be available in selected outlets in Europe and elsewhere, and features Roger Waters on the cover.

Uncut have previewed the magazine thus: 'The small matter of 25 years after his last rock album, an urgent, raging Waters has returned, with much he needs to say. Is This The Life We Really Want?, according to producer Nigel Godrich, gives Waters a "reboot in the same way The Force Awakens gave Star Wars back to the fans." And in our exclusive interview, Waters elucidates. "It's not much of a leap from 'Is This The Life We Really Want?' to 'Money', 'Us And Them' or 'Welcome To The Machine'," he says. "They're all interconnected in ways that are… unsubtle."

'There’s plenty to talk about, of course, as Pink Floyd's retrospective exhibition opens at the V&A in London and Waters plots his imminent Us + Them live extravaganza. In a wide-ranging conversation with Michael Bonner, Waters touches on Floyd and The Beatles, 9/11, Brexit ("All through my youth I fought the Farages of this world"), Bernie Sanders and, of course, Donald Trump. "There’s a resistance everywhere," he says. "I want people who come to the show, particularly in the United States Of America, to understand that what I'm doing is symbolic of the general resistance to the absolute inhumanity of the status quo."'

The magazine can be purchased online through Newsstand.co.uk although not right now; this new issue will be shown there shortly, so we suggest you give it a few days before trying.
