Issue 34 January 2011

Hello one and all and welcome to the new Now Then site. We’re really happy with the way it has turned out and an extra special thanks goes out to Michael Auty at madewithpixels for getting it online. We will be tweaking it in the coming months, as well as trying to get all our back issues uploaded, so give us a shout if you have any feedback or ideas for improvement.

Now Then #34 is an online-only issue. Many mags take a break in January because business is slow, but we’re not ones to sit about twiddling our thumbs. This month, I recommend you read Will Milner’s article about Sheffield Gangs and Nigel Mphisa’s exclusive interview with Cinematic Orchestra.

Happy New Year. You’ve had your fun – now get your nose back to the grindstone.
