THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM: NOW
WITH TEA SANDWICHES

If you can identify everyone in "The U.K. Lonely HITS Club Band," well, give yourself a buttered crumpet. If not, feel free to consult the key below. This lavish illustration features the leading lights of the U.K. music biz—as well as a few Brits who are leading the industry stateside—in a re-creation of a certain iconic album cover. The affectionate homage, commemorating our sorry Yank publication's first-ever U.K. special section, was rendered by our own Van Arno, who was rewarded for his efforts with a steak-and-kidney pie and a pint of warm lager.

Our Contents page VIP, meanwhile, is none other than Adele. With new single “Hello” rampaging across the landscape, the XL/Columbia megastar hasn’t taken long to re-establish her dominance—not merely as a top-selling act but as an unstoppable cultural force. When her 25 streets on 11/20, it’s game over; she’s destined for another record-setting run. Even a Contents shout-out in our miserable mag won’t mar her triumphant reign.
