In this week’s NME…

As their hyper-hyped album finally lands, we join The Vaccines for fun and frolics in Sweden where the sex ban on the bus is only adding to the nervous tension!

Ahead of the next set of student protests, we have a special report on the sit-ins, walk-outs and future plans of this co-ordinated nationwide rebellion.

There’s also the verdict on the new Strokes album, interviews with Those Dancing Days, Beth Ditto and Busta Rhymes, as well as a special feature on the original New York glam-punks, New York Dolls..

Oh, and not forgetting an amazing ‘on the sea’ feature as we join Black Lips and the sticky cream of American lo-fi at a festival on a boat. Check out the ‘Bruise Cruise’…

Plus there’s your 7 day gig guide, live and album reviews, news, facts, and various angry plots to assassinate Justin Bieber…
