Q is 25 years old

And to celebrate, it is producing 25 different covers - which is one for every reader they have left, I think.

Quick hint, Q - if you're looking to mark a quarter century of taste and discernment, this...

Hey Simon, this is Q. They started out with Dire Straits covers in the 80's. So Paolo Nutini is just a natural progression.

Just read that R.E.M. split up today. Surely that means they've got bigger worries than having the wrong person on the cover. It basically means that they've only got U2 left to talk about...

That's not fair. I'm sure they can still rely on Muse and Kasabian for fascinating features too.

Gosh that really is a shoddy-looking, half-arsed cover, isn't it? Reminds me of that completely misjudged Radio Times cover marking their 70th anniversary with an awful tacky badge with a '70' on it. You expect something with just a tiny bit of class, surely?
