See ya Tony.


Sooo, See ya Tony. What can you say about this man eh? founder of the Hacienda Manchester and Factory records, he broke some of the most innovative music that came out of the eighties, back when pop was pop and not some homogenised piece of shit that needs to be sold with a video that looks like a porn film. The music he released on his label was grim, edgy, moody, innovative, refreshing but above all... fukin exciting!!

MAdchester!!

The world badly needs an injection of Tony Wilson's.

Nuff said!!

My words ain't good enough mate.

RIP

A nice bloke and will be greatly missed in MCR. I never made it to the Hac, never fancied it. For a lot of the Madchester thing i was either to young or didn't interest me but i really appreciate the legacy it gave to MCR. And Tony was a catalyst for that!!
