City Fun: The Hidden History of Manchester's Favourite Fanzine
Artefact added : 25th October 2012
by Abigail
David Wilkinson Says –
This is a classic example of how City Fun made no distinction between its left-wing politics and its role as nerve centre for Manchester’s post-punk music scene. In amongst reports that Joy Division are about to release ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ and that Doris and the Dildoes are looking for a drummer, we get the reminder that the House of Commons doesn’t represent us and the news that Manchester City Council has withdrawn its grant to the Gay Centre. And that Thatcher’s husband is the chairman of a company which makes a chemical responsible for causing deformities in unborn children.
