Because I lived through the tail-end of the Hacienda generation (Madchester, anyone), and could even see the joins in 24 Hour Party People, I feel sad to hear that "Mr Manchester", aka Tony Wilson, died today. And he was only 57. I even remember Granada Reports. I have a slight... uncomfortableness with some of the political views of some Factory Record bands, but I have tremendous admiration for someone who just had an idea, and made it happen.
