Issue 65 April 2019

This month we have a bumper music section, with record reviews (they’re for life; not just for Record Store Day or a quick buck via eBay), a live review and an interview with folk singer-songwriter Gretchen Peters.

We’ve also posed questions to comedian Mark Steel and this month’s featured artist, Anna Forlati.

Also have a gander at Ged Camera’s Manchester International Festival preview, our report on the debut of a Manchester-focused short film showcase named Backlot, and Lucas Jones’s wander round the political landscape of Piccadilly Gardens.

Enjoy the read.
