Synopsis:
This witty and compelling portrait of the eighties music scene is viewed through the eyes of Tony Wilson: a young Cambridge graduate and TV presenter, who, inspired by the Sex Pistols first Manchester gig, founds the now world-famous Factory Records and the hacienda night-club. The bands he signs include Joy Division and The Happy Mondays - who became seminal artists of their time - whilst the Hacienda transforms Manchester - a declining industrial city into "Mad-Chester" - the place to be. All this is built on Wilson's anarchic business philosophy: no contracts, just passion, music and hedonism - if the bands don't like it they are free to leave.
No-one leaves, but with debts and hangovers rocketing, things do get completely out of hand...Comedian Steve Coogan is brilliantly cast as the wry Wilson, struggling to hold it together in a worlds of vice and angst-ridden geniuses. The fabulous soundtrack includes hits from The Happy Mondays, New Order and Joy Division.
