Get your coloured lights out for this month’s featured artist, Italian duo Carnovsky. Their work responds differently to red, green and blue light, so give it a go if you get the chance.

This month, Nigel Slack tackles devolution (p7) and the question of whether Sheffield will be voting on a new elected Mayor in May next year, I talk to journalist and filmmaker John Pilger (p12) ahead of his appearance at the Crucible on 27 October, and Tasha Franek talks to Neil Hannon (p50), the man behind The Divine Comedy, about his new album, Foreverland.

Elsewhere, I recommend Andrew Wood’s piece on Curtis Eller (p19) and this month’s Sad Facts (p29).

Sheffield was shocked and saddened last month at the passing of local photographer Shaun Bloodworth. On the couple of occasions we worked with Shaun, he was an absolute gent – so generous, open hearted and warm. Long may his legacy continue.
