New issue out now
Clash magazine - Issue 75 - Patti Smith

The high poetess of Punk, Patti Smith, is the cover star of the new issue of Clash magazine, available to buy today (7th June).

Poet. Artist. Musician. Icon. Mother. Patti Smith is all these things, yet what consumes her most is the future of our planet. She wants you to join her in the "ultimate revolution" which will save the world. Clash went to find out more.

Patti Smith is crying. There’s a room full of people, all awkwardly wondering how to react, as a sixty-five-year-old icon of rebellion gently wipes tears from her eyes while recounting a recent experience with a toothless three-year-old girl. It’s an unexpected emotional outpouring, to say the least, but if there’s one thing you should learn about Patti Smith, it’s that she wears her heart on her sleeve.

Read an excerpt from our Patti Smith interview.

Also in the issue are Beach House, Sigur Ros, Fixers, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, The Invisible, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes and all the month's music, film, fashion and technology news and reviews.
