Syd Barrett And Other Cult Heroes - Inside This Week's NME

By NME Blog

Posted on 23 May 11


In this week's NME...

It's a Cult Heroes special, in which some of the biggest names in music - Bowie, Alex Turner, Matt Bellamy etc. - tell us about their favourite cult icons. Yep, the freaks and oddballs who never made it big, but whose influence was immense. We're proud to have Syd Barrett as our cover star for it...

Elsewhere in the mag we've got the latest on Noel Gallagher's solo album, speak to Frank Turner about his dream of 'Being Freddie Mercury", and check out The Strokes live...

Also we join Bombay Bicycle Club in the studio to find out about their new album, take a long hard look at Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way', and tag along with Wild Beasts on the road, in the process getting the low down on who's got the biggest penis in the band ...

Plus reviews, the week's essential gig guide, and loads of other stuff that will make you a WINNER.

Buy it for fuck's sake.
