Leave The Capital Trailer

Video trailer for Paul Hanley’s Leave The Capital: A History of Manchester Music in 13 Recordings

Leave The Capital tells the story of Manchester music through the prism of the two studios’ key recordings. Of course that story inevitably takes in The Smiths, Joy Division, The Fall and The Stone Roses. But it’s equally the story of ‘Bus Stop’ and ‘East West’ and ‘I’m Not in Love’. It’s the story of the Manchester attitude of L.S. Lowry, by way of Brian and Michael, and how that attitude rubbed off on The Clash and Neil Sedaka. Above all, it’s the story of music that couldn’t have been made anywhere else but Manchester.

Trouble In Mind Launch Video

Clinton Heylin talks with the Bishop of Leeds, Nick Baines, at the book launch for Trouble in Mind.

The launch was held in conjunction with The CAT Club and is hosted by Rev Reynolds. Before the conversation between Clinton and Bishop Nick, the room had enjoyed a full playing of Slow Train Coming. The version played wasn’t the released album, but a previous mix sent by Dylan to his record company which had a slightly different running order and included an extra track, ‘Trouble In Mind’.

The event took place at Tap & Barrel, Pontefract.
