Thanks to everyone who gave us kind compliments on our 100th issue back in July. We’re really glad we managed to get it all together in time and couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out.

We are back in print this month after a break in August and we’ve got a bumper issue for you to get stuck into. Interviews this month include Dr Genevieve LeBaron, author of Protest Inc: The Corporatization of Activism, and Michael Rother, founding member of the seminal German band Neu!, who are both due to appear in Sheffield in the coming months as part of Off The Shelf and Sensoria Festivals respectively.

It’s a great pleasure to have local oil painter Andrew Hunt back this month after we ran his ‘Goat Herder’ piece as our centre poster for NT#100. Read more about Andrew on page 41, including his call-out for head models, and marvel at his work throughout this issue. We also welcome the new Sad Facts page to Now Then, filling the rather silly boots formerly occupied by Cool Beans.

If you’ve got something to say, get in touch.

This month’s mix comes from Beats and Pieces resident Mr Skiver.
