RIP Tony Wilson

There’s a great obituary over at the Guardian/Observer written by Paul Morley.

He seemed driven by the feeling that if he wasn’t as dark as he was light, as profound as he was trivial, or as aggressive as he was gentle and patient, he couldn’t complete his mission – which seemed to be nothing less than the modernisation of Manchester in a way that reflected his Situationist-inspired belief in a kind of urban utopia, the idea of a city as much made up by poetry, pleasure, philosophy and dreams as politics, business and architecture.

I am really looking forward to seeing Corbijn’s Control when it gets out to the colonies.
