Last weekend, I paid my second visit to Sheffield in recent times and once again failed spectacularly to see anything of what I know is a most excellent city.

My first visit was on a chilly weekend in November 2016 and just like this trip, we were staying in a hotel miles away from any nightlife after playing a gig at the wonderful Greystones music venue – which is located on a top of a leg-crunching hill miles from any late late bars.

So with humble apologies to the denizens of Sheffield, here’s a short collection of damp and grey shots from my short visit.

Support act for the night was the startlingly original ‘prog punk’ band Sleepy People.

At first I thought there was a manikin in one of the windows of the refurbished council flats on South Street Parkhill, Sheffield.
