Here are some nice pictures of R&R and S&M.
Sorry to make another post about planning permission in Sheffield but I feel it’s a necessary one.
There’s a proposal to demolish 162-170 of Devonshire St. This affects some of the area above Devonshire Green. The bloodthirsty council clearly can’t get enough of the apartments and restaurants and cafés clamouring for space in the city centre. What with the proposal to demolish a large proportion of the city’s Cultural Industries Quarter, it’s as if Sheffield’s arts and design heritage is of no interest in the face of more Costas, Gregg’s and Subways.
162-170 houses a number of independent businesses, two of which make Sheffield the city it is today. Rare and Racy is a second hand book and music shop that smells of burning incense and always plays free jazz whenever it’s open. It’s a hugely important place, not just to me but to anyone else who has been introduced to a novel or a record, not through recommendation, but through complete fluke. It’s presence in the city is silent and composed but vital and enriching all the same.
Syd&Mallory’s is an independent clothes shop that specialises in handmade and vintage clothes. They’re responsible for the wonderful outfits we both wore at Reading Festival this year. It’s the third time they’ve changed premises in the 8 years I’ve been aware of them and when I popped my head in recently it seemed that - right next to R&R they’d found somewhere to settle (with a stunning shop front).
I’m only raising this as a matter of interest for Sheffield folk but if you have any connection to these premises please make a statement on this City Council forum and alert others who may be interested.
Thanks for reading.
Whenever I close my eyes, this is what I see- slavesuk

Really great new song I wrote and recorded and made a video for.
