Inside The New Issue Of NME (17 June 2009)

In the new NME, which hits shops on Wednesday 17 June, we celebrate the 30th anniversary of Joy Division‘s epochal debut ‘Unknown Pleasures’.

In Radar this week, meet Yes Giantess, the perverse pop fetishists turning hipster promise into reality.

Blur get back to business in, er, Colchester.

We review the week’s best gigs, including Glasvegas in Vegas and Jack Penate‘s NY party.

No politicking, no rhetoric: Gossip‘s back-to-basic’s new album ‘Music For Men’ goes under the microscope.

Plus – Jay-Z, Blur and Darker My Love head up our weekly run-down of must-hear tracks.
