THE STORY OF THE FACE
THE MAGAZINE THAT CHANGED THE CULTURE
Launched by NME editor and Smash Hits creator Nick Logan in 1980, The Face became an icon of style culture, the benchmark for the latest trends in art, design, fashion, photography, film, and music being defined by a thriving youth culture.The Story of The Face tracks the exciting highs and calamitous lows of the life of the magazine in two parts. Part one focuses on the rise of the magazine in the 1980s, highlighting its striking visual identityembodied by Neville Brodys era-defining graphic designs, Nick Knights dramatic fashion photography, and the Buffalo styling of Ray Petr and its unflinching approach to journalism. Contributors included a host of writers who subsequently made their impact in the wider world, from Julie Burchill, Robert Elms, Tony Parsons, and James Truman to Jon Savage, Richard Benson, and Sheryl Garratt.Part two shows how in the 1990s, after surviving a disastrous Jason Donovan libel suit, the magazine heralded the post-acid house era of Britpop and Brit Art. However, after the magazine had become the engine of the booming British magazine industry, the end of this decade also saw the eventual demise of The Face. Including an introduction by Dylan Jones, The Story of The Face is an engaging behind-the-scenes look at the rise and fall of one of the 80s and 90s most influential music and style publications.

CLASSIC POP presents
THE NEW ROMANTICS
In our latest Classic Pop Presents special, we immerse ourselves in the flamboyant world of the New Romantics. From the scene’s origins as an underground movement born out of the Blitz Club in Soho through to the worldwide surge of popularity that led to mainstream success for some of the major players who made their musical mark, such as Boy George, Spandau Ballet, Visage and Duran Duran.
Inside we tell the story of the Godfather of the scene, Steve Strange, and explore his pioneering band Visage with the help of Blitz DJ and band member Rusty Egan and fellow band-mate Midge Ure, who moved on to front Ultravox.
We chat to Spandau Ballet’s Steve Norman, who guides us through the making of their game-changing debut album Journeys To Glory, plus we head up to the Midlands to the Rum Runner club, which gave rise to another of the scene’s major success stories, Duran Duran.
This issue has plenty more to be enjoyed, including an exploration of David Bowie‘s influence on the movement plus eye-opening interviews with some of the scene’s faces to get their side of this fascinating era, including Toyah, Princess Julia and Mark Shaw.
Raconteur, author, DJ – and Soho’s Wag Club founder – Chris Sullivan shares his hilarious memories of the times, and we strut the cat-walk with Blitz Kids, fashion designer Judith Franklin and photographer Graham Smith for our New Romantic fashion feature.
Also inside, there’s our Top 40 Essential New Romantic playlist, the design styles and artwork of the scene’s many fine releases, and all with stunning photos throughout!
