Has it really been thirty years since The Crack started to become a staple part of life in Newcastle and the wider North East? Bloody hell, man.

The Crack has been a constant almost throughout my adult life and informed some of the cultural puddles I’ve stuck my philistine toes into. I don’t know how many times I’ve flicked through a copy of The Crack and thought bloody hell, I’m going to that or read reviews of all the stuff I’ve missed.

The Crack is a Geordie institution so here’s to the next thirty years. Crack on lads and lasses (see what I did there?)

All the best from everyone at true faith.
