THE COVER STORY
SEX PISTOLS – 1977 was the year that punk rock faced the full wrath of Britain’s establishment. John Laydon and other leading combatants relive a year in the eye of the storm.
- ALICE COOPER – God and Satan lock in combat as rock’s showman supreme ponders where Alice ends and Vincent begins: “If I go to a bar, should I bring a snake?”
- BRIGHT PHOEBUS – Lal and Mike Waterson’s uncanny folk rock masterpiece was overlooked for decades. Martin Carthy, Richard Thompson and more draw it back into the light.
- MARC BOLAN – T.Rex’s Bopping Elf began 1977 with a new lease of life, a back-to-basics album and a bevy of punk pals. Making what followed all the more tragic…
- RANDY NEWMAN – The last genius of American song-writing has a new album out, but the usual insecurities and idosyncrasies apply: “I’d do nothing, if I knew it wasn’t bad for me.”
- THE ALLMAN BROTHERS – Gregg Allman’s passing has prompted a surge of love for his Southern Groovers. Alan Light recalls their regal rise and torrid travails.

EMPIRE – August 2017 Issue£4.70
In EMPIRE this month…
THERE IS A small but solid clutch of films that have a massive DO NOT TOUCH OR COME NEAR OR EVEN LOOK AT sticker slapped across them. Don’t attempt a remake and by Christ, don’t attempt a sequel/ As we know, for every The Godfather Part II there is a Breakin 2.
Blade Runner has always sat squarely amongst those films. One of the greatest sci-fi films ever made, Ridley Scott’s portrait of a dystopian world brutalised by social decay and devoid of humanity remains timeless.
As the years have passed, each rumoured sequel (and prequel) has fallen away, our breaths slowly exhaling as they did. It was, we thought, never going to happen. And yet, here we are, 35 years later, and just over the horizon is Blade Runner 2049. It does feel in truth that we’ve been holding our breaths once more, ever since news of the sequel was confirmed. Was Ridley Scott on board with it? Would Harrison Ford’s Deckard return? And in what capacity?
Hang on, is that Ryan Gosling?! And the biggest question of all. The only one there ever is, really. Oh God, will it be good? We can’t answer the last one definitively just yet (Sorry!), but we are more hopeful, and full-lunged as ever. Empire’s Ian Nathan went on set and witnessed Denis Villeneuve’s new world coming to life, and it seems as rich, dark and mind-bending as Ridley Scott’s ever was. Turn to p66 for his full report.
That’s not all we’ve got for you, though. We have the latest Han Solo news, a first look at Detroit, all the details on Steven Soderbergh’s new heist flick and truly one of the craziest stories i’ve ever read on the making of a film. Think Con Air is nuts? The movie’s got nothing on how it actually found its way to your cinema screen. Turn to p110, put your feet up and enjoy.
It’s been a blast this month.

Q July 2017£4.50
The new issue of Q celebrates 40 years of Paul Weller with two special covers to collect. Simon Goddard met Weller on the eve of the release of his new album, A Kind Revolution, which, by amazing coincidence, comes exactly 40 years after his debut with The Jam. From punk beginnings to the biggest band of his generation to The Style Council, to the Britpop breakdown and beyond, we chart his ongoing coronation as mod’s living monarch.
Also in the new issue, Ted Kessler heads to the US to see Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods win over New York and Laura Barton visits avant-pop hero Perfume Genius at his home to hear about his latest transformation. This month’s Q Maverick is Will Oldham, who under Bonnie “Prince” Billy and other aliases has carved a career that’s slowly swayed from lo-fi folk to spectral electronica. Matt Allen met him in New Orleans. Elsewhere in the issue, there’s a Beth Ditto feature by Sylvia Patterson and we speak to the A&R men who discovered the stars. Also in the new Q, Niall Doherty looks beyond Glastonbury, Reading and V to compile Q’s bespoke boutique festival guide.
The subject of this month’s Cash For Questions is Craig David, while Run The Jewels deliver their edicts on how to live in 10 Commandments. We report from Lorde’s triumphant live comeback, head Out To Lunch with Goldie and visit Everything Everything in the studio. This month’s Q reviews section features live reviews of Stormzy and PJ Harvey, and we run the rule over new albums from Kendrick Lamar, The Charlatans, Jane Weaver, The Amazons and more.
