NOTE Shop’s very potent full length video ‘New Normal’ premiered on Friday evening and it was highly entertaining throughout, they always put on a helluva show! We have posted a photo gallery of documentations shot during the filming of the video by the ever productive man Joe Gavin… (see above). To top it off we have published our ‘It’s Not Where You’re From: Manchester’ feature from Issue 19 of the mag within this article so while you’re witnessing plenty of Mancunian based heads killing it, you can brush up on your Manc slang too! Scroll down to see more and then you may as well watch the full ‘New Normal’ video again! Slang words by someone who is never going to peck our head… Sam Bottenberg with photography by Ian Williams and Reece Leung.
