ImageThe new issue of the UK's Uncut Magazine (cover date April 2024) has just been announced, and goes on sale Friday, March 1st, from all good stores and available online worldwide. As you might have realised from the cover image, it has a large feature on Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets, with a number of new interviews with the band as they get ready to start touring the UK and Europe from June this year.

Trailing the 11-page article, the magazine talks about the genesis of the band: "There have been many twists in the long-running saga of Pink Floyd, but few could have predicted the events of May 20, 2018. On stage in Camden's Dingwalls Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets opened a surprising new chapter in the band's story, reviving the three-minute pop fantasias and cosmic-progressive freak-outs of the Floyd's foundational years before The Dark Side Of The Moon. In our cover story, Mason looks back on the creation of this magnificent, irregular music while, along with his co-conspirators in the Saucers, he explains how – and why – they've brought it back to life. “The best Pink Floyd gigs were voyages of discovery, accompanied by a sense of mystery and adventure,” Mason tells Uncut. “I was excited about playing music with a sense of freedom, music that involved improvisation. That’s what Saucerful Of Secrets is all about.”"

It's a fascinating, well-illustrated article, with contributions not only from each of the Saucers, but from Aubrey 'Po' Powell, and Saucers lighting technician Rachel Axton. The process of deciding on, and developing, the set list for the shows is discussed, revealing the thought processes behind the decisions. Mason's insights, in particular, are typically amusing and illuminating, covering the early days of Pink Floyd and how that relates to life in the Saucers.

As we mentioned, the magazine should be hitting the shelves in UK stores on Friday, March 1st, and online orders can be made through the publisher's own website.
