An anthology of outrageous interviews from the mixed-up, muddled-up music scene

Antonino Tati (founding editor of Cream Magazine) celebrates 20 years of publishing by pulling together an anthology of unorthodox interviews with artists from the international music scene – delving into juicier subjects like sex and sexuality, drink and drugs, money and politics, race and religion, and the pitfalls of fame and faux pas of the famous.
From the veteran likes of Nick Cave, Dave Grohl, Henry Rollins and Patti Smith, to contemporary icons Naomi Campbell, Ellie Goulding, Calvin Harris and Adam Lambert, artists from every genre are prodded, poked and pinned under the microscope for sharper observation.
Interspersed with fascinating listicles and behind-the-scenes antics, There’s your quote, mate adds up to one outlandish and outrageous read: an up-close look at a music industry gone utterly mad.
