Celebrate bank holidays, rain and life in general buy absorbing every word of the new issue of Nightshift, as it’s now out. It’s got a cowboy hat on the front cover, for some reason.
This month’s cover feature is an overview of Oxford’s independent promoters. There’s all the news from the local music scene, and reviews of new releases including Agness Pike, Foci’s Left, The Fr3e Lions, Abandon and Salvation Bill. There are lots of gigs in the comprehensive gig guide, and you can read about what’s already happened with live reviews including Supernormal festival, Wilderness festival and lots more. There’s an introduction to Salvation Bill, a look back at what was going on in Oxford music five, ten and twenty years ago, and the usual two-page Demo reviews section. Demo of the month is from Scott Bowley, in the Demo Dumper is O Red Line.
