Manchester District Music Archive panel at the 2015 Louder Than Words Festival held at the Palace Hotel. The session was titled 'Funny how a melody sounds like a memory' and featured CP Lee who chaired a discussion between (L-R) journalist Anita Sethi, Birmingham Music Archive's Jez Collins, MDMA's Alison Surtees and Graham Massey of 808 State and Toolshed.
The future of online community generated archives was discussed as was the importance of encouraging people to upload artefacts from current bands and events, a subject close to my heart. After all tonight's gig is tomorrow's history.
