The electronic duo quit touring in 2010, with Andy Cato moving into sustainable farming and Tom Findlay becoming a therapist. Now, 12 years later, they've nearly completed one final live tour, and have recorded new material for their 25-track greatest hits box set.

TRANS WRITING BLOSSOMED ON THE BOOK SCENE

In many ways, 2022 felt like the year of the underdog in the book world. Although it lacked blockbusters, fringe fiction flourished and works in translation soared. But which trends will we look back on from our lofty armchairs and think, 'That was so 2022'?

CATHOLICISM MADE A MINI COMEBACK

Catholicism has always lent itself to transgression. Its flamboyant aesthetics and patriarchal power structure have inspired everything from Renaissance art to Nunsploitation films, and the Met Gala to the relationship between Fleabag and her Hot Priest.
