Bido Lito! Issue 73 Out Now

The last mag of 2016, this most tumultuous of years, hits the streets today. Lots to delve into from an anaylsis of 'BREXIT 2.0', through the return of BALTIC FLEET, to the defining albums of the year featuring BOWIE, BEYONCÉ and ANOHNI. There's also a review of LIVERPOOL MUSIC WEEK, we enter the world of PSYCHO COMEDY and attempt to get under the spandex of BARBEROS. Elsewhere, our trusty photographers pick their favourite moments of the year captured on SD card, we talk to Manchester upstarts CABBAGE and a month in gigs is reviewed. This month's cover star is the brilliant LAURIE SHAW.

THIS WEEK'S ARTIST
This month's cover star is Cork-based, Wirral-born and great.

LAURIE SHAW

"The record was inspired by the concept of 30 7” records being left in the sun to melt and consequently meld into one another.” As far as descriptions go, this one is pretty much perfect. And the man behind it – Wirral-born, Cork-based alt. rock maven LAURIE SHAW – is limbering up to release this audacious new LP Felted Fruit in November, a breathless rampage through fuzzy garage rock, psych folk and mutated pop all dispatched in concise two-minute blasts. Richard Lewis caught up with the prolific auteur to talk about his voracious output, roots and his influences.

Laurie Shaw: "All the songs were different entities themselves and they’d all been chopped up into each other – I like that aesthetic to it. I was trying to make stuff short and snappy."

AOBB
