A Year on the Manchester Music Scene is the collected writings of a freelance journalist who was commentating on the city's music and cultural scene in 1999-2000. They form a snapshot of a particular place and time: a specific moment in regional cultural history which can never be repeated. It's a great city, and it was a great year.
