Pull Yourself Together was, for a time, was probably the best Manchester based zine going. Focusing mainly on the indie/indie-pop scene, it was distributed free at record shops and bars around the city. Pull Yourself Together was also a regular club night at Common and they put bands on at various venues around town every now and again too.
This 11th issue of the zine includes bits on SxSW 2010, efforts to save BBC Radio 6 Music and an article arguing against Pay to Play (plus other stuff).
The Pull Yourself Together website is still floating around cyberspace at the time of writing. Go and have a look here.
