Pull Yourself Together is an indiepop fanzine and clubnight based at the creative centre of Manchester - Common. We like to listen to pop songs, which we then write about and play in bars and stuff. People seem to like that we do this, and they come to see us and pick up our little zine every two months. Lots of people have been saying nice things about the zine recently, including Steve Lamacq, Marc Riley, Artrocker and the NME. Which is nice.
