Uncut magazine, trademarked as UNCUT, is a popular monthly publication based in London. It is available across the English-speaking world, and focuses on music, but also includes a film section. The magazine also features articles covering music-related books. A DVD magazine under the Uncut brand was published quarterly from 2005 to 2006.


Uncut (main magazine)

Uncut's contents include lengthy features on old albums, interviews with film directors, music and film news, and reviews of all major new album, film and DVD releases. Its music features tend to focus on genres such as Americana, rock and alternative country. Each month the magazine includes a free CD, which may include both new and older music. Special Issues have covered Radiohead, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Byrds, David Bowie, Demon Records, Eric Clapton, John Lennon, Pink Floyd, Queen, Martin Scorsese, Motown Records, Morrissey, George Harrison, Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin and more.

Uncut underwent a radical redesign in May 2006, as a result of which the magazine no longer catered for books and reduced its film content. Allan Jones has been the editor of Uncut since the magazine launched. A former editor of Melody Maker, he has stamped his own identity on the magazine and writes a regular monthly column, recounting stories from his long career in music journalism.

Uncut Legends

Uncut often produces themed spin-off titles celebrating the career of one artist. This series has been known as Uncut Legends. Artists who have so far had magazines entirely devoted to them include Radiohead, Kurt Cobain, U2, Bruce Springsteen and John Lennon. The Lennon magazine was produced to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the death of the former Beatle. The majority of these titles have been produced by magazine editor Chris Hunt. The series started in 2003 with an inaugural issue devoted to Bob Dylan, edited by Nigel Williamson.[2]

Uncut DVD

In late 2005, Allan Jones and publishing director Andrew Sumner launched a spin-off of the main movies and music magazine, that focused its attention on DVD releases of classic movies. Billed as "the only great movie magazine," Uncut DVD was designed to compete with such established titles as Ultimate DVD, DVD Review and DVD Monthly. Despite glowing reviews in the UK trade press, Uncut DVD folded after three quarterly issues.
