Only magazines featuring interviews, lengthy articles or essays are listed in this section. To include in this list every record or concert reviews and short articles without interviews would be a neverending task, and a pointless one. If you feel something should be mentioned here or if you have more details (topics covered, interviewer name, photographer name, title, etc.), please write to to let me know.

This issue of the NME featured a Morrissey interview originally conducted by Tim Jonze.

This sparked a confrontation between the music tabloid and Morrissey reminiscent of another one from 1992 where the NME editors of the time also tried to portrait Morrissey as racist with the aim of selling more copies (see 22 August 1992 in this list). The only difference is that this time Morrissey's people replied to the accusations instead of ignoring them.
