Wilson

Tony Wilson died ten years ago today. His legacy is all over this city and (probably) in your record collections and on your hard drives. Manchester and pop culture is a poorer place without him. I’ve posted Mike Garry and Joe Duddell’s tribute to Tony before but Mike Garry’s words about him and the world he was part of are always worth hearing again.

Bonjour

Bonjour mes amis- we got back from France late last night following a Dean Cassidy style drive across France and England. You’ll be pleased to know that Bayonne, deep into the south west of France, Basque country, is proudly anti-fascist. While I was away news came through of a new Andrew Weatherall solo album, Qualia, due in September on Hoga Nord and a two track dub 12″ at the end of August. This song is a trailer for the album- twinkling synths, krauty beats, and a voice saying ‘hello’.

And also while I was enjoying the sun, the moules, the frites, the vin, another Music’s Not For Everyone appeared. Plenty of catching up to do.
