Issue 112 July 2017

As is customary for Now Then, we are online-only this month and next month, before returning to print in September.

We’ve got homegrown talent in NT#112 in the form of graphic illustrator and painter Marcus Method, who’s bright and bold work you may have seen on many surfaces across Sheffield and Manchester.

We also had the great pleasure of interviewing electronic music extraordinaire Chris Clark, ahead of his gig in Manchester as part of his Death Peak tour.

Elsewhere, you’ll find an interesting review of Byline Festival (a “protest against fake news and alternative facts”), a fantastic photo-journalism piece on European refugees, and a short interview with the director-producer of a documentary about doom metal in Sheffield and further afield.

Keep your submissions coming and feel free to get in touch with me.
