City Fun Fanzine Exhibition

9th December 2012

Manchester District Music Archive’s brand new online exhibition: City Fun – The Hidden History of Manchester’s Post-Punk Fanzines is now live. The fanzine was published between 1978 and 1984 and is a remarkable eye-witness account of one of the most fertile periods in Manchester’s music history; in its pages you get the unfolding insider story of the rise of Joy Division, the death of Ian Curtis, the beginnings of the Smiths, and the launch of the Hacienda plus a unique insight into the city’s independent labels, long-lost venues and half-forgotten bands.
