C Duncan

an introductory letter (with Mr Chris Duncan on his new album, 'Health')

I feel like I’m amongst friends when I fire up my trusty tape recorder


Malicious (Video premiere)

Here at itm? we’re proud to premiere the latest video from Fenella – ‘Malicious’.


major reconnection (with Manda Rin and Sci-Fi Steven)

‘This Is Fake DIY’ – less a tune from 90s popsters bis and more of a manifesto. Now they’re back and while still doing it themselves, they have a little help.

With a name like North Atlantic Oscillation, Sam Healy’s band seem unlikely to be pushing Ed Sheeran-style acoustic pop into the charts.

Sometimes, the life of a musician on tour is seen as a exotic one.
