Out Gives Us Aural


British comedy duo Matt Lucas and David Walliams grace the October edition of Out. And they couldn’t look better!

In addition to looking at the Little Britain boys’ new gig at HBO, the new issue’s absolutely brimming with nuggets of musical goodness, like a conversation between Jakes Shears and Carly Simon, as well as a hard look at late and underrated Arthur Russell, whom we simply adore.

No music issue would be complete, of course, without a rundown of great albums. Thus, after surveying 100 gay movers and shakers, the Out staffers compiled the “100 Greatest Gayest Albums of All Time,” a list topped by the incomparable David Bowie. The Smiths, meanwhile, do a double dip in the top ten:

1. David Bowie, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, 1972

2. The Smiths, The Smiths, 1984

3. Tracy Chapman, Tracy Chapman, 1988

4. Indigo Girls, Indigo Girls, 1989

5. Judy Garland, Judy at Carnegie Hall, 1961

6. The Smiths, The Queen is Dead, 1986

7. Elton John, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, 1973

8. Madonna, The Immaculate Collection, 1990

9. Cyndi Lauper, She’s So Unusual, 1983

10. Antony and the Johnsons, I Am A Bird Now, 2005

Of course Judy’s up in there.
