Prog magazine issue 34In UK stores now is the new issue of Prog magazine, and within its pages you'll find a new four-page interview with producer and musician Alan Parsons, talking about the making of Pink Floyd's 40th anniversary-celebrating album, The Dark Side Of The Moon.

Written by Stephen Humphries, a friend of, and occasional contributor to, Brain Damage, the interview covers degrees of expected ground - no surprise in a general music publication - but also has a few new nuggets. In one segment, Parsons talks about how some of the sound effects were created, such as coins or clocks chiming. He also explains about the steps and breathing heard in On The Run - according to him it was not recorded in the pedestrian tunnel from South Kensington Underground station to the Science and Natural History Museums (as Roger Waters has noted in interviews), but at Abbey Road itself.

Elsewhere in the magazine, there's coverage of The Moody Blues, in the run-up to the release of their career-spanning 17-CD box set Timeless Flight. In their most revealing interview ever, Justin Hayward and his colleagues reveal a career that included popping pills with The Who, jamming with Jimi Hendrix, living it up with Jefferson Airplane and hanging out with The Beatles.

The magazine is housed in a cardboard slip cover, which also contains a free CD. You can purchase the magazine, either single issues or as a subscription, internationally through this direct link. Prog is also available on iPad, Google Play, Kindle and Nook.
