Manchester Music…

Certain bands from Manchester with a heyday in the late 80s and early 90s are reforming and playing in the summer. The Guardian has a couple of articles on the Manchester music scene from the late 80s and early 90s, including various images, and one which (positively) places it in a broader socio-economic context…

…as does an article (not quite as positive) from Sheffield which also mentions the Bible as well as a wider time frame (1976-1994) and more Manchester bands. This article is also celebrating its first anniversary and so as part of the festivities we make mention of and give a link to:


‘For EveryManc a Religion: Biblical and Religious Language in the Manchester Music Scene, 1976-1994’ Biblical Interpretation 19 (2011), pp. 151-180

This article has had so much impact it is even cited andbriefly summarised on a Wikipedia entry.


One response to “Manchester Music…

  1. The bands coming together to revive Manchester music played in the 80s and 90s will certainly evoke some nostalgic memories. Nevertheless, it will be a great idea if these bands can organize some concerts.
