If you’re yet to buy all of your Christmas presents for your loved ones this year, no problem. The perfect Christmas present is now available – get them all a copy of the new Nightshift! Yes, yes, they could already have picked up their own free copy, but if that’s the case, all you need is the wrapping paper.
This month’s cover feature is an interview with Mother Corona. There’s all the news from the local music scene, Nightshift‘s tracks of the year, and reviews of new releases including PADDOX, The Retros, The Dreaming Spires, Mother Corona, Kid Kin, Beginners and Little Red. There are lots of gigs in the comprehensive gig guide, and you can read about what’s already happened with live reviews including AUDIOSCOPE14, Maiians and lots more. There’s an introduction to Charlie Cunningham, 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 Gift Of Blindness, in the Demo Dumper is The Haze.
