Issue 67 of Clash Magazine is out now with a youthful Antony Kiedis and Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers on the cover as we look at the making of their classic ‘Blood Sugar Sex Magik’ album.
By 1991, the self-titled debut album by the Red Hot Chili Peppers was seven years old, and it sounded it. The ascent of the group, though promising and peppered (pun intended) with great tunes, was hampered by modish production skills by producers who failed to harness their increasingly popular and fantastic live shows, and quickly dated. It’s now twenty years since the release of ‘Blood Sugar Sex Magik’, and it still sounds as fresh, invigorating and relevant as it did back then.
