Issue 108 March 2017

Another action-packed issue for you this month, with an (admittedly accidental) theme of housing and immigration.

I strongly recommend you read Joe’s interview with Nikesh Shukla, who edited The Good Immigrant, an anthology by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic writers which you should read.

In the music section, our writers summarise their favourite releases of the last three months and we talk to Gilles Peterson about his talent-nurturing project, Future Bubblers, which is turning its attention Sheff-ways.

Sad Facts continues to run amok – I’m not sure who let them in, but we can’t get rid of them now – and our featured artist is local painter Phil Lockwood.

Keep in touch and let us know what you think.
