RE: The Oldest School aka Manchester Computer Music

posted by on June 18 at 15:42 PM

Yesterday I was trying to come up with a good reason to post a video of a very sweaty Tony Wilson discussing the importance of the computer and synth technology in Manchester music. Now Charles has given me one. I believe the computer in the background in this video is the same one that was used to record the Ba Ba Black Sheep and In The Mood bits. I could be wrong but so what. It’s still great to see Tony sweating like a pig, answering a phone call from his son Oliver and singing the praises of New Order. Wish you were here with us now Tony.


This clip reminds me that Mr. Anthony H. Wilson deserves both the “genius” and “wanker” tags.

The world is much less interesting -- much less proud and futurist -- with Tony Wilson gone.

And there's a huge fucking gap waiting to be filled.
