Issue 8 | October 2022
Things get SPICY this month as we catch up with the fabulous Melanie C!
Looking back over her life and career in a Retro Pop exclusive, ahead of the release of her first-ever memoir - the Spice Girls superstar gets candid on her time in the band and the years that followed.
Since topping the charts with Wannabe in 1996, there have been multiple reunions, between which she’s released eight standout albums, scored hits with the likes of Bryan Adams and Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, and toured the world.
Elsewhere in this month's issue, we celebrate 25 years of Robbie Williams’ solo career as we look back over his early beginnings and his journey to becoming one of the UK’s most successful male artists, while M People legend Heather Small tells all about her latest solo album ‘Colour My Life’ and reveals how learning to love herself helped build her confidence as a musician and performer.
Plus, having celebrated the 40th anniversary of their 1981 Eurovision win last year, The Fizz tell all about ‘Everything Under The Sun’ - which may just be their strongest album yet!
There’s plenty more where that came from: noughties boy band favourites Blue look forward to their new album ‘Heart & Soul’ and reunion tour; Blancmange’s Neil Arthur talks rejoining London Records for his superb new collection ‘Private View’; Sybil looks back on her stellar back catalogue and reveals plans for her first LP in 25 years; and Alphaville star Marian Gold revisits the group’s biggest hits for his brand new orchestral set.
All that and more in the latest issue of Retro Pop!
