Jon Savage (writer, social commentator, broadcaster & author of England’s Dreaming/Teenage/1966) in conversation with Abigail Ward (Manchester Music District Archive).
Preceded with a rare showing of the iconic ‘Weekender’ short by Flowered Up at 6.30pm.
The topic will be late 80s early 90s ‘Madchester’ and the Baggy musical scene that defined it . Also under discussion will be the critically acclaimed album Jon produced for CTR last year – Perfect Motion: A Secret History of Second Wave Psychedelia 1988-93 – and its distinctive take on the era.
The Stone Roses, their influence, legacy and reformation will also be on the musical agenda. A must for fans of the music and culture of that era!
Followed by music with DJs Jon Savage/Abigail Ward & CTR Guests.
Listen to ‘Perfect Motion’ here.
