In this week’s NME…
It’s massive Glasto review time as we look back at the year that had it all: giant headliners, amazing secret sets, blazing sunshine and knee high rivers of shit.
So who smashed it and who bombed? What was going on with Bono’s trousers? Who was that little bloke who got on stage with Beyonce? Where was the best place to lose your mind, and more importantly, who were the amazing secret guests that made this year one of the most epic of all time (Spoiler alert: the cover that you’re staring at RIGHT NOW might be a bit of a giveaway)?
All the answers, the verdict on all the best bands and a massive poster special inside.
On top of that, guitar god Slash talks about the books, films and bands that inspired him to slay his axe, Patrick Wolf talks trannies and fashion faux pas, and we give the verdict on the massive new Horrors album.
As well as that we celebrate The Killers’ return… but can they still cut it? Janelle Monae goes down a storm in Spain and Liam takes America.
Plus the rest of the week’s albums reviewed and rated, the essential gig guide and the best new bands you have to hear.
