Whilst we do not know the exact publication date, it is likely that this was the first time Shadow appeared on the cover of a magazine.
Magazines are often dated a month ahead of issue, which would mean that this likey hit the shelves in October '96. Give that the above Melody Maker was issued in the final week of October, it is probable that this hit the streets after the November edition of URB.
The article takes the form of a conversaion between Shadow, Brian Cross (B+) and Merlo from the group Spain.
