The Manchester Music Tour from New Manchester Walks

On the Manchester Music Tour, the New Manchester Walks team take you to the places where Manchester music history was made: from Piccadilly Gardens where Buzzcocks had their photo taken for the cover of the first do-it-yourself punk record, “Spiral Scratch”, and where in the film 24 Hour Party People the young Happy Mondays try to feed the pigeons crack cocaine; to Dry Bar; the Hacienda; the Free Trade Hall; the Ritz; the Boardwalk; and the basement record shop where Morrissey once worked – yes! – for five minutes, resulting in a depression that inspired those great opening lines from “Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now”.

Manchester, so much to answer for, as the man sang…
