This May 2017 issue of Q sees Kasabian
come back from the brink as Serge Pizzorno and Tom Meighan recall a roller-coaster year to Q’s Sylvia Patterson. Sylvia spends a couple of days in Leicester with Kasabian’s dynamic duo ahead of the band’s new album. “There’s so much comedy in what we do. We’re psychedelic kids from Leicester,” says Pizzorno, whilst Meighan documents a year of relocating his inner Superman.
There’s also a mammoth 10-page feature with Brit Award winners The 1975. Matt Healy invited Niall Doherty to his East London home for the afternoon as he looked back on a triumphant 12 months for the indie-pop quartet. They’ve had a Number 1 album on both sides of the Atlantic but Healy is aiming for more. “We want a legacy,” he says.
There are also: interviews with Sampha, The Jesus And Mary Chain, Tegan & Sara, Biffy Clyro and this month’s Q Maverick is Wilko Johnson. The subject for this issue’s Cash For Questions is Kaiser Chiefs, whilst the Q Review runs the rule over the month’s new albums, including releases from Depeche Mode, Spoon, Stormzy, Hurray For The Riff Raff, Ed Sheeran, Future Islands and more, while we catch The Weeknd live in Paris and Julia Jacklin in Brighton.
