He left a lot in his legacy, but it still feels like a little bit of M/cr is missing.

I think he's more revered now that he's gone. It's a shame that so many people disliked him, as he made one hell of a contribution to Manchester's music scene.

He was a wanker and a twat, but he was our wanker and twat, and we could always forgive him for it.

I hope the people of the UK don't show the same amount of forgiveness for Tony Blair when he's gone.

Tony Blair could have discovered The Clash and he still wouldn't be forgiven.

Aw totally. He was behind In The City, which is still going strong, and we all know about Factory Records and the Hacienda. I knew him for about 5yrs before he died; not closely, but well enough to have a bevvie, through a mutual friend who managed the Happy Mondays It was a shock when he died, because I'd seen him earlier in the year and not suspected a thing.

Yeah, he really did.

I met him a few times too but I didn't "know" him as such. At the time, he was hosting a live late night debate show called "Granada Upfront" and I was in the studio audience a couple of times, so met him through that.

Plus I went to a couple of the In The City conferences and got involved in small talk with him at that a couple of time. I was in the lift when he and Feargal Sharkey walked in - how about that for a claim to fame?

I'm guessing you mean Nathan, and not Phil Saxe, the Monday's original manager? Did you ever meet Muzzer, the band's drug procurement agent?

I've shared a spliff with Tony and nearly got a lift home in his jag, but was beaten by 5 others and he wouldn't let anyone get in the boot.

Just think, we could have been at In The City at the same time.

Haha, he did like his perks. Nope, I'm talking about Phil Saxe, I don't think I know Nathan. I met Phil at uni; he was head of the music management course (I was on a different degree) and much smoking and drinking was enjoyed lol. My networking was far more useful than my classwork

Haha 'drug procurement'

I've never heard a bad word said about Mani. And rightly so.

Buzzcocks- Boredom


Yeah - well - I say what I mean
I say what comes to my mind
I never get around to things
I live a straight - straight line

You know me - I'm acting dumb
you know the scene - very humdrum
boredom - boredom

boredom

I'm living in this movie
but it doesn't move me
I'm the man that's waiting for the phone to ring
Hear it ring-a-ding-a-fucking-ding

You know me - I'm acting dumb
you know the scene - very humdrum
boredom - boredom

BOREDOM

You see there's nothing behind me
I'm already a has-been
my future ain't what it was
well I think I know the words that I mean

You know me - I'm acting dumb
you know the scene - very humdrum
boredom - boredom

B'dum - b'dum

I've taken this extravagant journey
so it seems to me
I just came from nowhere
and I'm going straight back there

You know me - I'm acting dumb
you know the scene - very humdrum
boredom - boredom

So I'm living in this movie
but it doesn't move me
so tell me who are you trying to arouse?
get your hands out of my trousers

You know me - I'm acting dumb
you know the scene - very humdrum
boredom - boredom

Ah, they did earlier in the thread - I know because I was going to add them myself but I checked to see if they'd already been posted.

Can we count Stockport as "Manchester" for the purposes of this thread?

If so, here's 10cc - Dreadlock Holiday:
