Show # 3 'Manchester... Nothing To Answer For'

Mr. Steven Patrick Morrissey said it well when he revised his statement "Manchester, so much to answer for."

In my humble opinion, if it was made in Manchester...
It is awesome.

It all started, for myself, with New Order and Joy Division.
Respectively, The Smiths and Morrissey soon followed.
Then, an 'UNCUT' magazine featuring New Order on the cover and Bernard Sumner seemingly holding the CD which came with the issue (or perhaps it's Hooky holding it, I'm still not certain). There was a very long New Order article (multiple pages long) and an awesome spread about essential Manchester records. I still have that magazine around somewhere.

It is kind of funny how a certain part of the United Kingdom has produced such greatness.
And I suppose, we have Mr. Anthony Wilson to thank for bringing much-deserved exposure to a few of these ones.

Thanks, Tony.

"My theory on Manchester and why it produces the bands it does is that because the world is willing to listen to them, it gives the kids a confidence and and a belief that what has happened before might happen again. It's something to aim for."
- Jimi Goodwin (May '00)
