Unfortunately, this issue is now out of stock. To purchase the digital edition, click here.
In the new issue of Q, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Cure. We gather an army of famous fans to tell us their favourite track and most cherished Cure memories, as well as hearing the choices of Q readers and Robert Smith himself.
Also in the issue, we look back at the life and deep musical impact of Frightened Rabbit’s Scott Hutchison following his tragic death last month. Eve Barlow lends a sympathetic ear to alt-pop superstar Lykke Li in LA, Paul Moody meets DMA’s, three easy-going Australians who are being welcomed as homecoming heroes in Manchester, and Dave Everley heads to France to hear how wanderlust informs the epic new album from Ben Howard. We also watch theatrical metallers Ghost stop traffic in Nashville and delve deep into the creative tensions at the heart of New York’s Parquet Courts.
This month’s Q Maverick is Super Furry Animals singer and Welsh “national treasure” Gruff Rhys and the subject of Cash For Questions is Stockport indie-pop quintet Blossoms. We head Out To Lunch with U.S. Girls, hear about the albums that changed Jon Hopkins’s life and Eminem collaborator Royce Da 5’9” outlines his 10 Commandments for living.
In the Q Review, Arctic Monkeys raise hell with a storming Hollywood gig and Florence + The Machine light up London’s Royal Festival Hall. There’s also reviews of excellent new albums by Let’s Eat Grandma, Lily Allen, Gorillaz, Years & Years, Kamasi Washington and more.
