St Anthony single and video released by Writer in Residence Mike Garry

11 August 2015

Writer in Residence and Fellow of the Centre Mike Garry released St Anthony – An Ode to Anthony H Wilson on 14 August 2015.

This is a fantastic piece of work celebrating Tony Wilson who died this week in 2007, loosely based on Your Silent Face by New Order and superbly arranged by musician and composer Joe Duddell. In addition, and as if it couldn’t get any better, all the proceeds go to The Christie in Manchester who cared for Tony during his illness. Watch the video and learn more about how to buy the single and support this great cause.

More details of how Mike got involved in the work of the Centre and more information from the Law and Popular Culture blog. Mike taught some classes on the ‘Writing the City’ module for the Department of English, Linguistics and Cultural Studies last year and there are lots more activities to come, including a special Canadian Poets event in October, more details to follow.
