Also in this 30th b’day issue:
Q’s team of experts have boiled down the most important records created on Q’s watch (so far) to 476 albums, which we examine in detail across this special edition.
“They are all Modern Classics which thrillingly re-shaped the sonic landscape,” says Q’s Senior Editor Matt Mason of our selections. “They’re the documents that tell the fascinating story of music in Q’s lifetime, full of their own mysteries and tales – laid out by our writers over 120-odd pages. I’m sure people will disagree with some of our selections and approve of others. We’re confident that it’s a robust distillation of all the noise into unimpeachably great music. And, really, that’s what Q’s always been about.
In addition there’s a 15-track, specially curated, Modern Classics CD showcasing music from the likes of New Order, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Billy Bragg, The War On Drugs, Lambchop and more – plus there’s a poster featuring The Stone Roses and Arctic Monkeys
