Other photographers on show include ones that lived locally to shoot the various scenes and bands as they emerged or took a special interest in Manchester’s music scene and the bands that made it. These include Paul Slattery, Peter Walsh, Steve Double and Howard Barlow.
Steve Double has shot some great pics of James, The Stones Roses, The Happy Mondays and Oasis, all looking fresh faced and ready to take on the world. While some of Howard Barlow’s pics include Tony Wilson looking gleeful riding a dodgem at the Hacienda back in 1992 when it was set up like a fairground. Along with candid shots of Mark E. Smith, Shaun Ryder and New Order’s Bernard Sumner.
