Prog Magazine issue 105, with Pink Floyd The Wall 40th anniversary feature

Just arrived in UK stores, and available worldwide online is the new issue (issue 105, January 2020) of the UK's Prog Magazine. Always a decent read, this month's issue has three features in particular of interest to Pink Floyd fans.

First, there's a two-page look at Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets, and in particular, the band's UK and Ireland tour this year. With comments from Nick and guitarist Lee Harris, it finds the band missing the stage, and looking forward to being back on it in the spring when the dates resume.

The main feature is a celebration of the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd's epic double album The Wall in a ten-page feature. They talked to Nick Mason, Bob Ezrin, Gerald Scarfe, and Bob Geldof about how the album evolved into a live extravaganza, a movie and how it pretty much broke the band. It's a lively, and fascinating, look at this wide-ranging project.

The Wall feature is followed by a two-page interview with the Floyd's Creative Director Aubrey 'Po' Powell, and Andy Jackson, long-time collaborator with the band who mixed and produced much of the music on The Later Years. There's also brand new and exclusive interviews with Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant, Marillion, Sons Of Apollo, The Flower Kings, Edison's Children, Kaprekar's Constant, Nightmare Scenario, The Blackheart Orchestra, American Tears, Field Music, Lee Abraham Music and more...

Plus there's the results of the 2019 Readers' Poll (with Nick Mason in the top ten drummers, and the Saucers in the top ten event category), and a look at 50 years of the legendary Friars Aylesbury venue. And music from Oak, The Dave Foster Band, Stuckfish, Moonshot Band and more on the CD.

If your local store doesn't stock this magazine, you can get a copy, shipped anywhere in the world, through this direct link.
