Untold midnight hours have been burned and carefully managed forests decimated to bring you 400 issues of fRoots. Some people appreciated it.
BEASTLY HAPPENINGS
A Facebook idea got out of hand and turned into Sidmouth Horse Trials, open to all manner of folkbeasts. There was a difficult jump, dressage and a small girl co-opted as head of the judges. And it will get even sillier in years to come. Photo spread by Ian Anderson and Kyle Baker.
FLITERATURE
Martin Green’s latest project Flit is a concept album and a ground-breaking piece of musical theatre. It’s another wild tangent from Lau, discovers Colin Irwin.
