Here's a peek into this week's NME, which you can pick up on Wednesday 10 November...

My Chemical Romance are our cover stars, and we hope you like their new direction as we do. No, it’s not just about the hair dye, as Gerard Way tells us in a smart and surprising interview, they’ve stopped their goth-y whining, and gone pop art. Find out how and why inside...

Warriors of waste, heroes of glam, superstars of sex... Suede are back, and the formerly dirty bastards are in rude health. We speak to Brett Anderson and the rest of the reunited band and discover a band on a mission to remind people that they were the most rock n roll band of the 90’s.

We’ve also got a Mick Rock special. Mick Rock, as in the photography legend who’s photos of his bezzie mates Iggy, Lou, David, Debbie et al, defined the 70’s...

On top of this, there’s interviews with Damon Albarn (now writing on an iPad apparently), These New Puritans (smashing melons causes chaos on stage), Magnetic Man (brilliant on-the-road piece – they’re maniacs), and Alice Cooper (he tells us why he didn’t kill a chicken on stage – it basically killed itself).

Plus reviews, news, gig guide, crossword, cartoon, photos, words, staples, smells, and a lot of bacteria (we’re all ill this end, sorry).
