This issue combines May and June, so we’re crammed with reviews of both Sounds From The Other City and Manchester Jazz Festival, as well as interviews with avant-garde sound artist Holly Herndon and scriptwriter Naomi Sumner Chan.

Lucas Jones gets his teeth into the past couple of election days for Localcheck, and Ged Camera drove his (figurative) Chevy to Levy Library to learn about the community project’s progress so far.

Our featured artist is Liam Woodruff, whose colourful work you can see across our pages in this issue and in real life on 4 June at Night & Day Cafe. We’ve also fired some questions at local documentary photographer David Dunnico, whose Flag of Convenience exhibition runs until 28 June at Stockport Art Gallery.
