Heyou issue 40Some more magazine news for you this morning! Recently published is the latest issue (number 40 - cover date July 2023) of the Pink Floyd fanzine "Heyou" run by our friends over at the Italian website of the same name. The 52-page dual language magazine (in Italian and English), which is published every six months or so, catches up with things in the Floyd world.

The magazine normally has three main areas of focus for its coverage, but for this issue, the 50th anniversary of The Dark Side Of The Moon is the entire focus. It starts with a reprint of a New York Times article from this year, taking a close look at the album, and why and how it became such an enduring success.

There's a look at the promotional activity in the Italian city of Milan in March this year, which used lighting to recreate the cover in the Piazza Duomo. There's also a lengthy section working through the album track-by-track in an analysis by UltimateClassicRock.

The final section of the magazine is taken up with an eight page interview with collector extraordinaire Stefano Tarquini - also known as Mr Pinky! Stefano's latest book is a guide to The Dark Side Of The Moon on vinyl, revealing over 700 variants known at the time of going to press (Stefano has since added to his incredible collection of this album) and the book can be ordered direct from It's an incredible piece of work, and shows how dedicated us collectors can be at times! Stefano gives background to his life and how his interest in music - and Pink Floyd in particular - grew, and what drew him to collect, and focus on, The Dark Side Of The Moon in particular. As he acknowledges, the book will need an update at some point as more variants have appeared since, quite incredibly.
