On the victory lap. On the ales. On a massive wind-up. In the new issue of Q, out Tuesday 16 January, Niall Doherty joins Liam Gallagher for three nights of noise and confusion. We report from triumphant shows in Cardiff and Manchester before spending an entertaining afternoon in the pub with Liam in London.
Also in the issue, Laura Barton heads to Stockholm to hear how a break-up informed First Aid Kit’s brilliant third album, Dave Everley hitches a ride with Franz Ferdinand as the Scottish indie-rockers launch their glorious reboot in California and Chris Catchpole hears how Leeds experimentalists Hookworms made a modern classic. Rupert Howe delves deep into the early days of Eminem, charting how Dr Dre and aspiring rapper Marshall Mathers III first met, and we speak to Ty Segall, the reluctant poster boy of California’s thriving underground rock movement. Tom Doyle talks to Richard Russell, who explains how a brush with mortality prompted the XL Recordings boss to make a star-studded debut album. This month’s Q Maverick is former Fat White Family founder and Insecure Men member Saul Adamczewski, who lets Simon Goddard in on the secrets of his “songs about the tragedy of surburban England.”
The subject of this month’s Cash For Questions is Paloma Faith, whilst Metallica’s Lars Ulrich outlines his 10 Commandments for life and Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno tells us about the albums that changed his life. In the Q Reviews section, we assess new albums from MGMT, U.S. Girls, Rejjie Snow, Joan As Police Woman, Franz Ferdinand, Hookworms, Ezra Furman and Ought, and report from shows by Jay-Z and The Moonlandingz. All this and more in the new Q, out on Tuesday 16 January.
