A detailed and contextual look at the postpunk music and arts scene in Manchester in the late 1970s, this biography explores the movement through one of its most riveting contributors—Magazine, the band fronted by ex-Buzzcock's member Howard Devoto. Featuring interviews and photographs that provide factual information about Magazine’s members, lyrics, artwork, and chronology, the guide also examines both their influences and imitators and discusses the band's impact on such artists as Franz Ferdinand, Morrissey, Radiohead, and U2. With unrivaled access, this is a unique look into the prevailing climate of the decentralization of the music industry, the growth of independent labels, and the DIY attitude born from a previous era.
