Anthony

This has appeared today on the eight anniversary of his death- a poetic tribute to Anthony H Wilson and the modern Manchester he was instrumental in creating. The poem was written by Mike Garry and then set to music by Joe Duddell (an orchestral version of New Order’s Your Silent Face). The video has a variety of people you’ll recognise lip-synching the words. I have to say, it pushes a lot of my buttons. New Order played it over the PA at their Jodrell Bank gig and Hooky played at his recent gig in Macclesfield. Several months ago a clip of Andrew Weatherall playing a dance version of this at the A Love From Outer Space festival at Carcasonne Castle was on Youtube (although I can’t find it right now). That very Weatherall remix of this is on the B-side of the 12″, out in a couple of weeks, with all proceeds to the Christie. How many more reasons do you need to buy it?
