MUSIC POLL

Thanks to those who took time to vote in the recent Manchester Music poll. Unfortunately,the response didn't do justice to an area of music that has delivered some classic tunes down the years. The final results saw a tie between Joy Division and The Fall, and the lead singer of the former is the subject of an amazing film by Anton Corbijn called CONTROL. I'm currently attempting to finish writing a feature on this legendary group which will look at the film, together with the history of JD and will also focus on TOUCHING FROM A DISTANCE; a book written by Ian's widow, Deborah. Finding time to blog has been very difficult recently, with a particularly fraught period at work rubbing shoulders with my wife securing me DVD reviewing duties for a web site. I'm sure my forthcoming weeks holiday from work will allow me to recharge my batteries and also to devote some time to writing here.

  2. Hey Mick! Yes, I'll be back before you can say "As a youth, I used to weep in butchers shops".
    Cheers mate!
