We’re slightly later with our entry into 2017. Call it the effects of a 2016 hangover. But it hasn’t stopped us fitting in chats with soul singer Lee Fields, psychoactive substance researcher Amanda Fielding and author Mark Stevenson, as well as this month’s featured artist, the ridiculously talented muralist Okuda San Miguel.

Ged Camera has had a busy January, watching, snapping and writing about plenty of bands for your browsing pleasure.

Thick Richard dominates this month’s Wordlife with his acerbic wit, while Brian Rooney shares his thoughts on life, death and rock stars, and Zachary Freeman imagines a close parallel world of Zeus, Murdoch and media control.

Elsewhere, there are film and album reviews, and a plan for that thing we spend 90,300 hours doing per lifetime.

Enjoy the read.
