ζθ   Paul McCartney’s looking younger than usual on the cover of this issue of Uncut — but that’s very much in keeping with the magazine’s old school approach — followed up in articles on John Lydon, Keith Richards, Squeeze, David Bowie, The Sonic, Mercury Rev, and Bjork! There’s also a mountain of music reviews here — 40 pages that look at tons of new music and reissues — and the magazine also comes with a bonus CD of 15 “coming up” tracks by Wilco, Public Image Limited, The Arcs, Lou Barlow, Robert Forster, Low, and others!
ζθ   Below are two questions and answers, and the conclusion to the interview (by the way, the charming detail is included earlier that he has a Lennon calendar in his kitchen at Hog Mill Hill):
Q:  You appeared on 'All Those Years Ago’, George’s tribute to John. But did you think that people expected you to write a song about John?
A:  If you’re not stupid, that does cross your mind. The same thing happened after Linda died. I thought, 'I just want to make the greatest...’ But you’re not always capable of responding to that stimulus. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s too big a thing to deliver. I was probably waiting to see if something came, but I couldn’t just sit down and write a response song. Funnily enough, “Here Today” was written on this spot. When I first got this building, this used to be a series of little rooms, which I cleared out to make this big office. I sat on the bare floor — probably exactly here, it was this end of the room. The bareness of the room was very conducive to focusing my thoughts. I had nothing to look at. So I remember just getting the idea of, 'If you were here today in this very bare room, what would we say, would we talk about, what would you do?’ I announce it in shows as a conversation we never got to have. Which, to some degree, is true. Though it’s a song, not a psychiatric report. There’s one bit that I kinda disagree with when I sing it. “And you said, I really knew you well what would your answer be?/Well knowing you, you’d probably laugh and say that we were worlds apart”. He wouldn’t have said “We were worlds apart.” But anyway. It works in the song.
Q:  The song specifically references your early relationship with John. Was that how you tended to think about him in the aftermath of his death, as the young man you first knew?
A:  I think so. Often when you think about anyone, you go back to your formative years. They are core memories, your big movies. On my last album I wrote a song, “Early Days” — “There’s the two of us dressed in black from head to toe...” — because I’ve got those images burned into my brain. The other thing is, some of the times in the years before he died were painful, particularly around the breakup of The Beatles. Like anyone — sometimes unwittingly, sometimes wittingly — I block the s**t. I don’t particularly want to stay with it and wallow in it. So even now when I think of John I often think of us writing together. “A Day In A Life”. Stuff Like that. “...Mr Kite!”. Whatever. Actually, I was just shown the old original scribbled manuscripted lyrics for “I’ve Got A Feeling” [McCartney is referring to his previous meeting that day]. On my side it’s, “I’ve got a feeling, feeling deep inside/Oh yeah.” His lyrics are to the side of mine. “Everybody had a hard time, everybody had a wet dream.” Those moments are the most priceless for me. I can go to the others easily, if I’m required to, if we’re talking about the s**t. F**king Allen Klein, all that. But I prefer to stay with the good stuff. So “Here Today” and songs like that hark back to the better memories.
Then McCartney looks at his watch. We’re some way over our allotted time. “I could talk for ages,” he says, tantalisingly. But he has other projects to tend. He walks Uncut back downstairs, where he stops by the front door. He chats unhurriedly for another five minutes about seeing U2 play recently at Madison Square Garden, the proposed running time of his Lollapalooza set and the critical rehabilitation of McCartney II. He talks enthusiastically about his desire to perform a show where he is unshackled from playing “Hey Jude” and the big hits, and can instead focus on the lesser–known tracks from his catalogue. As he finally opens the front door to show Uncut out, he asks how we’re getting back to Rye station. One of his studio staff is kindly providing a lift. He nods, then stops us on the doorstep. “Have you got anything to eat on the journey?” he asks. Without waiting for an answer, he ducks back into the kitchen and returns with some fruit. “Here you go,” he says. “A banana and an orange for the train.” And then, with a wink, he shuts the front door.

Interview with Low:
Asks: Laura Snapes
ζθ   http://www.uncut.co.uk/reviews/album/low-ones-and-sixes
A very personal top 140:
ζθ   OK so I’ve decided I can’t wait any longer to let this go; here are my 140 favourite albums of 2015, more or less ranked.
ζθ   As ever, a few caveats. The ranking is predictably pretty arbitrary beyond the top 20 or so; Natural Snow Buildings, say, should certainly not feel aggrieved to be at Number 140, given they could have ended up somewhere inside the top 50 on another day. I know admissions of imprecision like this don’t do much to foster an impression of empirical truth and authority, but I figure it’s best to be honest about how ad hoc the construction of a personal chart can be.
ζθ   Nevertheless, there’s obviously a lot of sport and pleasure in ranking so many albums. I imagine plenty of you will be rather sceptical about there being 140 albums good enough to bother with from 2015, and while it’d be disingenuous of me to claim that every one here is to my mind an unimprovable classic, I’ve enjoyed them all and believe they all, without exception, deserve at the very least a few listens.
ζθ   I probably say this around this time at 12 month intervals, but I remain convinced that every year is a good one for music, if you have the time, energy and enthusiasm to dig deep. That’s why I always think it’s useful to compile lists of such excessive length rather than tight little top 20s, or whatever: I’d like a lot more people to listen to, for instance, Byron Westbrook’s “Precipice” on the Root Strata label, so if I can give a bunch of these things a platform, and contextualise them with a few more familiar albums, that seems like a good plan to me.
ζθ   I should say that for a much more democratic summary of the year’s music, we have a very fine Top 75 in the current issue of Uncut, compiled from the votes of 40-odd writers and staffers. If you’re concerned that Father John Misty and Jason Isbell’s albums are absent from my list, you’ll certainly find them there.
ζθ   I’m sure, though, that a few things have slipped my memory, and that you’ll be able to turn me on to some other records I may have missed, so please post your own favourites/charts/recommendations etc at the bottom of the page. Many thanks, in advance – and thanks for your indulgence in reading this…
