Inhaltsangabe: 'I came back to my old city... and I couldn't find my way back to the station, it's all changed', so complained Morrissey on 'Heir Apparent' and it's not surprising as Manchester has changed so much since The Smiths heyday of the mid 1980s.
Now Morrissey's Manchester, a publication devoted exclusively to the city that shaped the life and lyrics of The Smiths, has been produced so that fans of the group can visit many of the sights remaining, including Salford Lads Club, concert venues and Morrissey's old house in Kings Road, Stretford.
Musically Manchester has become a victim of its own success. While it hasn't produced figures as ubiquitous as 'The Fab Four' or 'The King', there isn't another city in the world that, for the past forty years, has consistently influenced the music scene so persuasively. In this guide is contained all the information needed to plan a visit to the home of one of the greatest British bands ever. Fans of The Smiths are obsessive about every detail regarding their heroes. So whilst some local guide books briefly mention places of musical interest concerning Manchester music in general; devotees of Morrissey can expect and demand more.
Included here are two comprehensive tours of the Manchester area. One which can be taken on foot in the city centre and the other stretching across the suburbs that affected the band's history.
In particular the guide relates to the places Morrissey wrote about or which formed an influential part of the group's history, such as concert venues, meeting places and sites captured on film.
Inhaltsangabe: Includes free tour map. 'Morrissey's Manchester - the essential Smiths tour' is a guide book for fans of one of the greatest groups of the 1980s. This guide takes readers to the places Morrissey wrote about or which formed an influential part of the group's history, such as concert venues, meeting places and sites captured on film. Indeed a tour of Smiths and Morrissey related places, is also a tour of Mancunian history. The two literally go 'hand in glove', as you will discover whilst reading about Manchester's past and the life of the band. Has any other band been so inspired by their hometown as much as The Smiths? It's as if they could never have been formed anywhere else in the world. The decaying Manchester of the late 1970s and early 80s shaped the band which is why they provided the soundtrack to so many thousands of lives growing up not only in Manchester, but throughout the world. Since then of course Manchester has changed considerably, nonetheless the Smiths part in that revival is often overlooked. Manchester's part in the cultural revolution of the late 1980s proceeded The Smiths starring role in a city which has continued to produce world class music time after time. These tours allow dedicated fans to visit the sights and sounds that inspired Morrissey's writing - however they also offer the casual tourist a cheap day out at points of interest and history in the city. We hope to expand this series further over the coming months and hope you enjoy a taste of Manchester's musical heritage.
