Few people have affect popular music quite like John Lydon, and with PiL ready to release their first new material in 20 years, it seemed like the perfect excuse to meet him, and find out if he really is the character we’ve all believe him to be.

For this month’s issue (on shelves April 21st), we also met up with Simian Mobile Disco to discuss a career of escaping your past glories, Xiu Xiu main man Jamie Stewart, to talk watermelons, and ex-Lovvers frontman Shaun Hencher, now trading doo-wop under the name Virals.

Futuro RnB duo Polica have created one of our favourite albums of the year so far, so we spoke to them too, and Chicago drone kings Disappears, and sister twosome 2:54.

Plus reviews of records and shows by this lot…

DAMON ALBARN / JACK WHITE / BEACH HOUSE / BEST COAST / GARBAGE / THE SHINS / GEOFF BARROW / VIOLET / FLATS / MYSTERY JETS / LOWER DENS / LOW / FOSTERCARE / I LIKE TRAINS / HERE WE GO MAGIC / SANTIGOLD / ALLO DARLIN / THE MAGNETIC NORTH / TORO Y MOI / RICHARD HAWLEY / ELECTRIC GUEST / TU FAWNING / KAP BAMBINO / THE FUTUREHEADS / BRETON / KINDNESS / SAVAGES… and more.
