FAC 51

I was saddened to read about the death of Tony Wilson over the weekend.

He was infuriating, entertaining & informative in just about equal doses.
He had a nose for music though, discovering and nurturing some amazing bands such as Joy Division & later The Happy Mondays. If you need to get a good idea of what Tony was like, I recommend strongly watching 24 hour party people & if it is available choosing to listen to his commentary on the soundtrack.

Walk in silence,
Don't walk away, in silence.
See the danger,
Always danger,
Endless talking,
Life rebuilding,
Don't walk away.

From "Atmosphere" by Joy Division.
