"It's great to be in the trenches again, but it doesn't come without the highs and the lows..."
The Libertines break-up was, to use their own song title, a Horrorshow. However, despite all looking lost Pete Doherty and Carl Barat have somehow managed to claw their relationship back from beyond the brink, reunite and – together with bandmates Gary Powell and John Hassall – record their long overdue third album.
Ferried to their Thailand HQ on the back of Doherty’s scooter, Q hears the quartet’s full, emotional and unlikely story: from love and loss to new hopes of rock’n’roll glory.

Also this month Paul Weller, Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler speak in a 22-page special dedicated to The Jam, Dave Grohl discusses broken limbs and Foo Fighters' future, Jimmy Page recalls Led Zeppelin’s final days and Foals look to the future with their impending fourth album.
