Liam Gallagher is the subject of this month’s Cash For Questions. Alongside specially commissioned illustrations by Pete Fowler, he answers your queries, filling us in on his lockdown routine and telling us all about the tipi he’s put up in his garden.

The singer-songwriter Donovan has been at the forefront of musical counterculture since the early 1960s - and he has a tale or two to tell. Tom Doyle meets him for an avalanche of anecdotes. This month’s Q Maverick is Sparks. From isolation in LA, the pop innovators look back over a 50-year career and tell Simon Goddard all about their typically eccentric new album. 

We also introduce a new lockdown pastime as two Q writers enlist experts to help them navigate their way through genres of music they’ve always run scared of. With this month’s Out To Lunch feature not an option, instead London rapper Big Zuu gives us a cookery class over Zoom. He teaches Niall Doherty how to master his mum’s jollof rice.
