Manchester, England

Dave Haslam

The definitive account of the pop cult capital of the UK by Dave Haslam, one of Manchester’s top DJs and journalists. The explosion of music and creativity in Manchester can be traced back from Victorian music hall and the jazz age, to Northern Soul and rock and roll, through to acid house and Oasis. But its roots are in Manchester’s history as a melting pot of popular idealism and dissent, from the industrial revolution on, via film, theatre, comedy and TV.
