Andy Carstairs has been bringing you the very latest in old music since the early days of BookJam. Born in Kingston’s Gun Court his life has been a bit of a disappointment to be honest.
Living in London’s vibrant Brixton neighbourhood he deals in music and engages in Morris dancing and nocturnal photography. When he’s not reading that is.

Jonny Hughes is a freelance creative director, photographer and community arts do-er. When not designing magazines and directing photoshoots, he likes nothing more than closing roads to traffic, creatively re-using unloved space and generally using design to make our urban environment more people-powered.
