Issue 72 March 2014

Thanks for all the positive and constructive feedback we’ve had on our new design format. If you have any suggestions, let us know.

I strongly recommend you read our piece on legal highs by Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs director Sophie Macken. After we were approached by local police and service providers, we felt like we should give a balanced view. Awareness is key. With this article we aim to inform, not to condemn or condone. For some light relief, read Digital Everything and the ever-present satirical mockery of NewsThump.

The varied artwork of NemO’S is spread across our pages this time around – a combination of digital illustration, recycled paper painting and good old fashioned spray work. Read more in our interview with the mysterious man himself.

Next month we will be celebrating our sixth birthday as a publication, so we’ve got a few aces up our sleeves. See you then. Over and out.

This month’s mix comes courtesy of Miss Sara Hill, Opus Independents director and blues enthusiast.
