Issue 64 July 2013

As you probably already know, as usual we are online only for this month and next, returning to print with force in September.

This month we’ve got an art feature from local sculptor Stoneface, articles on healthcare, gender identity and the Fair Deal for Sheffield campaign, interviews with new Sheffield record label the Little Mesters’ Recording Confederacy, Chali 2na of hip hop collective Jurassic 5 and legendary film editor and sound designer Walter Murch in the Filmreel section, on top of a healthy collection of album and gig reviews, and two in-depth accounts of this year’s Sheffield Doc/Fest, which by all accounts was a great success.

As ever, if you have something to contribute to Now Then, get in touch with me.
