Despite our recent disappointing news about the print edition of Now Then, we’re back this month with an online collection for you. It’s a shame Jeremy Mann’s art work won’t be featured in a Manchester print edition, but if you’d like to see his portraits and cityscapes in print then you can order the Sheffield edition’s issue 79 here.

On the positive side, without the constraints of a paper page count, we’ve been able to include plenty of words for you, including a new Books section, multiple interviews, including Lamb and Mark Kennedy, listings, reviews, political satire and a round-up from the Food & Drink Festival.

Another bonus of the website is the fact we can bring you a new music mix each time. This time Agent J from Groovement.co.uk has selected some of his ones to watch along with music to accompany his two features in this issue – both the Neal Sugarman (from The Dap-Kings) and GrimmFest pages are worth checking out. Jamie describes his selections in more detail here.

Enjoy the read.
