Tony Wilson – Northern Soul

This entry will only mean something to about three people on my friends list… 

One of my great heroes, Tony Wilson – the guy who discovered Joy Division, founded Factory records and championed Manchester as a centre for culture for decades – died earlier this month.  Popbitch reports that he was buried in a coffin numbered FAC 501; Factory’s last catalogue number.

Tony Wilson; a situationist to the end.
