In this week’s NME, on sale Wednesday 24 November…

Paul Weller stands proud on our cover this week, as well he might. It’s been a hell of a year for the big man, as he’s hit a new level of success with his increasingly boundary-pushing rock n roll. We spent a few days in New York with him and found a man still inciting the youth to revolt

Elsewhere in the issue we have features on psychedelic maniacs – and best live band around – Bo Ningen, as well as Caribou, the super-brainy Professor of Being Amazing Even When Wearing Tie-Dye.

We also visit P J Harvey in her studio for an exclusive comeback interview. Her new album’s about war and peace, which is like, totally a rip-off of Tolstoy.

Plus we check out LCD Soundsystem’s joint tour with Hot Chip, speak to Bobby Gillespie about playing Screamadelica live, and get blown away by Daft Punk’s ‘Tron Legacy’ soundtrack. Your essential Gig Guide and reviews section are there too.

We impartially recommend that you go buy the shit out of it.
