Tony Wilson, 24 Hour Party People


Tonight, TVO was airing 24 Hour Party People {2002}, a fictionalized comedic biopic of socialist impresario and diehard Mancunian Tony Wilsonand the rise and fall of Factory Records. I remember the film airing in Toronto almost 4 years ago, the night Tony Wilson's death was reported.  I've always been a fan of Peter Saville, the Factory designer, who designed Tony Wilson's headstone {above} with Ben Kelly.
