ISSUE 1649 DEC 10, 2016
HELLO, READERS, and welcome to the very definition of a big issue. Because, not only, starting on p19, do we count down our favourite albums this year, the songs that sorted us right out, the quotes, the books, the films and more more more… but… well, as you might well have noticed when you hungrily tore off the wrapping to this issue, this week the magazine comes with a CD, a tribute to 30 years of Green Day. Happy Birthday, guys! Was a pleasure putting that together – thanks to all of the bands who took part. And look out,tokyo – if you thought this issue was big, you won’t believe what we’ve got planned for you next week. It’s Keeeeeerrrrristmas! Enjoy the issue.
