Q: Iggy Pop - August 2018

 
In the new issue of Q, Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh chairs an exclusive summit between Iggy Pop and Underworld. Welsh gathers the legendary singer and the ‘90s techno dons to a Miami hotel and then on to Pop’s home to find out how their secret collaboration, resulting in the Teatime Dub Encounters EP, came about. “Is there hope for me at two in the morning in Ibiza?” asks Pop of his new friends.

Also in the issue, Victoria Segal heads to Norwich to find out how Let’s Eat Grandma made one of the albums of the year and Laura Snapes hears about the traumatic creation of Years & Years’ second album. Sylvia Patterson joins Johnny Marr between bus rides in Dublin to discover that the former Smiths guitarist’s “storm inside” will never die down and Andrew Perry spends the weekend with Jamaican dancehall star Popcaan. Laura Barton charts the making of Bon Iver’s classic album, For Emma, Forever Ago on the marking of its 10th anniversary and we recall Stewart Lupton’s special talent in the wake of the former Jonathan Fire*Eater singer’s death last month.

Over 25 pages of reviews, we witness Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s spectacular live show and the reunion of raucous Aussie rockers Jet and The Vines. There’s album reviews of new releases from Florence + The Machine, Gabe Gurnsey, Johnny Marr, Kelley Stoltz and more. This month’s subject in Cash For Questions is well-connected indie lad Miles Kane. All this and more in the new Q.
