Intro: Effraim.

As you may or not have noticed I have been stepping up the amount of exclusive content on Flatmatters over the winter months, particularly the interviews which I think have been quite in-depth. On the flip side of that, sometimes I am aware they can be heavy reading and thats not everyones cuppa tea so to speak. So with that train of thought, I was thinking let’s bring back the top 5′s feature, and who better to kick this off with than S&M’s Peter Olsen. Let me know what you think in the comments. Thanks!
