London has Time Out, Manchester had 21 years of City Life and unfortunately no longer has that, but no other city as far as I'm aware has so much going on along one street, that it dedicates an entire magazine to it.

  About Manchester Music Library - a high-end production music library.
Manchester Music consists of 3 series: The Manchester Library (30 CDs) Manchester Special Edition (7 cds) and Essential Music (2 CDs).
When potential customers ask why our library costs more than some other libraries, we explain that the music is performed live by the top NY musicians; I am sure it makes sense that the music might cost more to produce and therefore sound better, thus giving it a higher value which justifies the higher price.

Most of this "post-punk" music was considered subversive and brutal, and (initially at least) tended to be rejected by the major recording companies and broadcasting authorities.

The event that first sparked my curiosity about music was in the early 1980's when, as a young 2 Tone fan, I discovered a stack of my father's original Blue Beat 7"s, including several Prince Buster songs that had been covered by my then favourite band, Madness.
