Tyler The Creator Brings Anarchy To The UK – Inside This Week’s NME

To ‘celebrate’ the wedding of Prince ‘I’m normal, me’ William and Kate ‘I’m aristocratic, me’ Middleton, we have a very special cover star come to spoil the mood. Tyler, The Creator is the most exciting new star in music bar none. And he’s proper evil. Him and his collective group Odd Future have been making huge waves in the States with their nihilistic, visceral rap, and as he prepares to hit the UK we find out about the filth behind the fury…

To tie in with Tyler’s anti-everything stance, we’ve also got a huge special on Rock vs the Establishment. Yeah, those moments when musicians stick it to The Man, big time. It features Iggy, MC5, Oasis, Marilyn Manson, and um, David Hasselhoff…

Also, there’s live reports from Coachella, where Kanye West smacks a few gobs, and from London, where Metronomy see the first evidence that their new album is going to break them big…

Speaking of bands going massive, Wild Beasts also debuted songs from their new album recently, and we’ve got the first report. (Spoiler alert: Properly amazing)

All this along with a massive reviews section, the essential gig guide and a funny cameo from John Lydon.

Buy it or be forever known as a Daily Mail-reading, aristocracy-brown-nosing, commemorative-mug-buying, hooting tangle of turd bunting.
