Ian Gittins reviews Shed Seven’s Change Giver and Sharon O’Connell reviews Portishead’s Dummy, 3rd September 1994.

You know I think there’s a Shed Seven song I quite like. It soundtracked a summer holiday job picking tomatoes and I vaguely remember them performing it on TOTP.

Ahh yes…thanks Spotify; it was Where Have You Been Tonight

[Hangs head in shame]

After the Loop interview something more conventional. David Stubbs is persuaded that Mark E. Smith is maligned only by idiots. Should probably also hilight the reference to the fanzine When Saturday Comes in the fourth paragraph, as I know some of you take an interest in such matters.
