Music and film magazine Uncut has revealed a new look following a disappointing ABC result in February.
The IPC title, which lost some 4,000 sales last year to rivals such as Emap’s Q and Mojo, is now focusing more on new music in response to reader feedback, while continuing to feature articles on music legends such as Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix.
The magazine also boasts new regular editorial slots, including ‘An Audience With…’ this month featuring The Kinks’ Ray Davies answering questions from celebrity fans; ‘Fight Club’, kicking off with Franz Ferdinand and New Order battling it out over the legacy of punk; and ‘The Making Of’, which this month covers Primal Scream’s "Higher Than The Sun".
Uncut editor Allan Jones said: "Our readers are incredibly passionate about music and movies, and they’ve told us loud and clear that they want us to feed their insatiable appetite for new stuff.
"Of course they’re interested in the new material from their established favourites, but their tastes are pangenerational and they’re just as likely to be raving about the Arctic Monkeys as riffing on the influence of Jimi Hendrix."
