Cool List 2010 Announced – Inside This Week’s NME

It’s the Big One, the Big Kahuna, the fricking Buddha of issues…the Cool List 2010!

No matter what they might say (“Hfft, what is cool anyway? It’s not cool to be cool…boo hoo hoo..”), it’s the list every musician worth his salt wants to be on. Who’s number one? You’ll have to buy it to find out, naturally…

Have your say – vote to determine the readers’ Cool List

Creation Records? Decent label. Achieved a few things. 18 Wheeler spring to mind. Anyway, Creation: The Movie is coming out soon and we got a sneak preview. Fans of Gallaghers, Gillespies and Gruffs may be interested…

We also go on the road with Frankie and the Heartstrings and Summer Camp, the co-headline tour which resulted in many cocks being painted on dressing room walls. As well as proved that UK indie is as vibrant as Frankie’s sweat glands.

Elsewhere in the issue we go cock-a-hoop for Warpaint’s debut album, check out Plan B’s bonkers live show, quiz Ice Cube on his career, and have Jack from These New Puritans tell us about the problems of playing gigs with a children’s choir. There’s also the week’s essential gig guide, a huge reviews section, and hundreds of puerile jokes.

Buy it or burn in hell. Your choice. But don’t say we didn’t warn you when you’ve got a trident up your jacksie…
