About Me

City Fun In 1981 wasn’t just a fanzine to me, it was a window into the world I wanted to be in as a green kid of 16. Liz Naylor and Cath Carroll were the names behind the title and to me they could do no wrong. They awoke my fascination in Manchester, a place I could only be part of when I escaped my home town, Leigh. It may seem strange to some but Manchester was exotic to me. A place where only the coolest people lived and where music was the highest art. Anyone who shares my love affair with Manchester and City Fun can show me stuff by going to my Facebook page ‘Teach me about Manchester music’. Thanks .Check out my about.me profile!

“Teri” is one of the first songs A Certain Ratio ever wrote or recorded, even before most of the Joy Division sound-alike material that made it onto The Graveyard and the Ballroom.  They decided not to use it, though, and years later they went back to it and re-recorded it with some alterations, including lyrics borrowed from “Genotype/Phenotype.”  It’s one of my favourite songs of theirs.
