On Indie Music, I was taken back and having fun remembering Manchester Music from the 80’s, here are some links and bands etc (have copied in some of the good text below)

Bands, remember these names
Bands that have emerged from the Manchester music scene include the Buzzcocks, The Fall, Joy Division and its successor group New Order, Happy Mondays, The Charlatans, Inspiral Carpets, James, The Stone Roses, and Oasis. The Chemical Brothers, although from southern England, formed in Manchester. Ex-Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown and ex-Smiths Morrissey continue successful solo careers. Other Greater Manchester natives include Richard Ashcroft and Jay Kay of Jamiroquai. (wikipedia, I remember the names though)

Also The Smiths, Cure, Cult, The Wedding Present (see to remember were big), House of Love, Spear of Destiny
