Bye-bye 2017.

‘Tis the season to be jolly, fa-la la-la-la… gig-gig, gig, gig. Festive Tourette’s aside, it’s been quite a year – stay tuned for the Jan issue in a few weeks, where we’ll be counting down our top albums and looking at some exciting acts for 2018.

In the meantime however, join us in welcoming BLM fave(s) Honeyblood to our cover for the first time. Jon Kean talks to Stina about songwriting, their upcoming show and the threat against that very venue, Thekla.

Elsewhere, Rhys Buchanan chats to Cloud Nothings, Roll for the Soul (RIP) pick out their funnest final shows and we see what Bristol’s best venues have planned for NYE. All this plus live listings, new music tips from Christian and a boatload of hot releases for December onward.

Music, eh – it’s well good.
