Mojo Magazine, December 2014 - Pink Floyd The Endless River specialHitting UK stores this coming Tuesday (October 28th) is the new issue of the UK's magazine, Mojo (cover date, December 2014, issue 253).

As you will have spotted, the magazine have gone down the expected route of giving major coverage to Pink Floyd in the run-up to the release of the new album, The Endless River. The album is due for release around the second weekend in November, depending on whereabouts you are in the world.

Other than the eye-catching cover, and the cover mounted CD (with a familiar looking bunch on the cover, beneath the title "brain damage") there's what promises to be an exclusive, 21 page special with David Gilmour and Nick Mason interviewed.

In the interview, Nick compares the period in the band when Roger Waters left, with the death of Russian leader Josef Stalin. "It must have been the same when Stalin died. It took quite a while [to recover], it was a three or four year period."

Mason also sheds light on the meeting at a sushi restaurant in 1984 when Waters revealed to the others his intention to leave the group. "Roger thought we were all going to call it day, and David and I thought Roger was going to call it a day and we were going to carry on," he reveals. "[But] the thing is, these slightly unbalanced people make great musicians. If we hadn't had the mad Syd and the mad Roger, we might have been doing Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep." Mojo should be in UK stores next week, and thereafter in selected stores worldwide as an import. However, wherever you are worldwide, you can order it through this direct link for despatch direct to your home!
