Hello everyone, and welcome back to this slightly-delayed svelte blog. This month’s show is mostly about my trip to Manchester for the Manchester International Festival and the soon to be here Green Man Festival.
Lots of excellent new albums and tunes, mind, I’m especially pleased that the new Pet Shop Boys album ‘Electric’ is pretty damned ACE.
There’s also a bit of cricket. COPE.
