Factory - From Joy Division To Happy Mondays.
This is superb - I grew up in the North West with a sister who was besotted by Tony Wilson. Seeeing some old clips of the man took me way back.
Also loved his description of the 40odd bands he put on telly and how everyone went on to greatness but what about the 500odd he didn’t? "They were all crap and that includes the Boomtown Rats!"
I would guess my sister would agree with that considering how many times "The Fine Art of Surfacing" was played back in the day.
Cheers to Smashing Telly - top site as always I really should get there more often.
