A Magazine for

Issue 42 September 2011

We’ve got plenty of goodness for you this month, including current affairs pieces on the riots and student protests. This is a green issue, with Localcheck covering public transport, Robin Lovelace discussing the benefits of bike trailers and author Paul Kingsnorth tackling some key environmental issues.

This is also the first mag to feature our all-new food section, which will be themed from month to month. This month – the glories of Spanish cuisine, with an article about the Moors and two home cook recipes.

I speak to Texan singer-songwriter Josh T Pearson about his debut record Last of the Country Gentlemen and beard freestyling in the music section. A perfect gent indeed. Headsup also features an interview with Sheffield’s own FroZac crew, who have put on some fantastic parties of late.

If you’ve always wanted to have an article or review published but don’t know how to go about it, drop me a line. Don’t forget, the vast majority of this magazine is written by the people of Sheffield.
