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.

We report from Lorde’s triumphant live comeback, head Out To Lunch with Goldie and visit Everything Everything in the studio.
