I had a subscription to Q for a few years.
It set me back a decade.

They actually have some really good journalists writing in-depth pieces on very DIS-friendly bands - can’t remember buying a physical copy in the last ten years, but see some good stuff shared on Twitter by Laura Snapes, Laura Barton etc.

the sad (?) reality of music mags is that of they don’t have one of their “core” bands on the cover they don’t sell any magazines
and presumably only white middle aged men actually buy music magazines
so this is our fault really
Vaguely remember that feature and i remember Tom Hibbert from his Smash Hits days.
Much preferred Vox in the early 90s, which was a bit more Dylan and Springsteen as opposed to Q’s Clapton and Sting.
