We hope you’ve been supping Now Then ale all month. If not, you’d best hurry before it’s all gone.

We’ve got some great content in this month’s mag: David Edwards follows up last month’s local
trade piece, this time focussing on collaboration; Alex Murray speaks to writer and documentary
maker Jon Ronson; Dawn M Sanders makes her Now Then debut with a piece on sex and disability;
and I talk to Bob Stanley of Saint Etienne ahead of the band’s live film soundtrack performance at
this year’s Doc/Fest.

Our featured artist for May is suitably seasonal. Bedelgeuse pieces together his intricate work using
old anatomical and botanical illustrations. Bursts of colour fit for springtime.

Don’t forget the return of Peace in the Park down at the Ponderosa next month – Saturday 14 June,
to be precise. As ever, Opus and Now Then will be curating the Other Stage. Keep an eye out for
announcements in next month’s mag.

I’ve done this month’s mix. Stream it below or click through to Mixcloud to listen with the tracklist. Hope you enjoy.
