Here it is, the groove slightly transformed,
Just a bit of a break from the norm.

“Why don’t you guest edit July, Jon? It’s a quiet month,” they said. Must have seen me coming. Bristol blatantly doesn’t do quiet. The focus may shift towards the sonic pick-and-mix of the festival, but one look at our releases and live listings shows that there is much shiny new music and plenty of splendid gigs to enjoy.

July’s cover star is Californian Chelsea Wolfe, whose Hiss Spun album was one of our picks of 2017. Kezia Cochrane picks Chelsea’s brain about the beauty and solace of abrasive noise. Will Perkins catches up with Hookworms to talk Microshift, social media and being their own biggest critics. Avec Sans tell Gabriel Palmer why they’re coming out of hibernation for Bristol Pride and Rhys Buchanan hears from Bristol’s own Captain Süün about the genuinely big step from writing about beer to writing about burritos.

Why not work on those lobsterish tan lines over an al fresco chilled beverage and a copy of Bristol Live Magazine?
