Issue 76 July 2014

As ever, we’re online only for July and August, but we’re not letting that hold us back. We’ve got a good mix of articles and features this month, with special recognition going to Josh Rowlands’ piece on the Roma community in Page Hall and Tolga Inanc’s exploration of the politics of the World Cup.

Art comes from Manchester’s Mr Hass, who also features in this month’s Manchester print magazine. Bold, distinctive work. He is also available for commissions, so hit him up at super-crafts.com/services

We also have a mix from Swami of Dubcentral fame for the inducement of suitably summery vibes. Enjoy.
