Uncut publishes David Bowie special memorial issue

Uncut has published a commemorative special issue dedicated to the late rock legend David Bowie.

This definitive tribute includes a 5,000 word obituary from acclaimed author and Uncut contributor David Cavanagh, which appraises Bowie’s legacy.

Editorial also includes touching interviews with some of Bowie’s key collaborators from the past 45 years.

The memorial cover features the iconic black and white image of Bowie entitled ‘The Archer’, reputedly one of his favourite images of himself.

To complement the special, Uncut has reprinted its deluxe edition of the Ultimate Music Guide honouring Bowie’s legacy, which was one of the bestselling editions from 2015.

The issue includes classic interviews with Bowie from throughout his career unearthed from the NME, Melody Maker and Uncut archives, along with in-depth reviews of his 26 albums.

John Mulvey, Editor of Uncut, said: “Like so many people, last week was tough for everyone at Uncut. I’m hugely proud of the work the team has done to produce this David Bowie memorial issue, and feel very fortunate that we’re able to publish an obituary with the scope, erudition and emotional heft.

“We’ve also made our Ultimate Music Guide to Bowie available again. Hopefully, together, they’re a fitting tribute to an artist who will always cast a giant shadow over Uncut’s world.”

Both issues are on sale now, Uncut is priced at £4.99 and the Ultimate Music Guide is priced at £9.99.
