The most widely read stories published in Outsideleft in November 2023

by OL House Writer,
first published: December, 2023

approximate reading time: minutes

What you guys read about most? Former Specials bassist Horace Panter talking expansively to Alan Rider about losing Terry Hall, life after The Specials, flat art, the Dirt Road Band, selfie culture, and extreme calligraphy.

The penultimate one of these where we check back over the hit stories our readers read during the past month... Unsurprisingly Alan Rider's exclusive interview with The Specials' Horace Panter gets the big gong. Callum Easter... not so far away, with two entries in the top 20 too. The main image on this page is Horace's painting, recently on display at the Colley Ison Gallery in Birmingham.

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
