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.
