Blitzed magazine is a bi-monthly lifestyle and music magazine that magnifies and examines all things from the 1980s. The concept of Blitzed Magazine started as a music publication inspired by the Blitz club in London. The music they played there, bands who met there and artists who continue to be inspired by the club. As well as the people who went (or wished they had!)

As things have progressed we’ve realised that the ‘cult with no name’ means so much more. It inspired fashion and lifestyle, helped to promote a more inclusive society sexually and produced some of the icons of the last 40 years. Be enlightened, again, or for the first time.

This issue of Blitzed takes time to speak to Ladytron, the electronic pop outfit who blazed through the 2000s on the back of a series of stunning albums and engaging synth-pop compositions. With the release of new album Time’s Arrow, it provided the perfect opportunity to explore how the band works, how they viewed the 20th Anniversary of their Light & Magic album and what the future holds. We also speak to dark pop chanteuse Polly Scattergood about her intriguing musical journey, collaborating with William Orbit and her involvement with the 6122 tribute album. The death of Depeche Mode’s Andrew Fletcher came as a shock to the electronic music community this year. This prompted the creation of a tribute album that would feature a wealth of talent from around the world who would provide their own take on classic Mode songs. Titled 6122, Blitzed takes a look at the album and also speaks to some of the bands involved in the project. Also, in this issue, we speak to rock-pop outfit The Primitives, explore the artistic talent of Mark Rylance and delve into the world of The Human League with a special excerpt from a new book on the Sheffield electronic music scene. Enjoy!
