Issue 75 June 2014

We’ve got a bit of a blinder for you this time around. Ahead of the screening of the new Pulp documentary at the Sheffield Doc/Fest opening event on Saturday 7 June, Alex Murray spoke to Jarvis Cocker and Steve Mackey about the film and the 2012 homecoming gig it documents. Elsewhere, we’ve got a really insightful piece on the Moor Market development by David Edwards and plenty more to boot.

It’s an honour to have the sublime sketching of Italian illustrator Marco Mazzoni on our pages. He’s an artist we’ve been courting for a while. Stunning work and a man of few words. Get the low down in our interview.

I strongly encourage you to attend Doc/Fest, 7-12 June. If you love documentaries it really is heaven. You can see our pick of the festival in the Filmreel section.

Much to the pleasure of all Sheffield citizens, Peace in the Park Festival returns this month after a year break. Get your diary out – Saturday 14 June, 12-9pm at The Ponderosa. We’ll be hosting the Other Stage as usual. More info on the Live page and at peaceinthepark.org.uk.

This month we have electronica label CPU records providing us with a mix. Enjoy.
