All the raucous action from Tuesday night’s special screening of 24 Hour Party People
On Tuesday December 12, NME and Zig-Zag presented CineJam in Manchester, taking over the city’s iconic music venue Band On The Wall, with a screening of the acclaimed movie 24 Hour Party People, starring Steve Coogan as the late Manchester music mogul Tony Wilson. The Michael Winterbottom-directed comedy chronicles the excess-fuelled rise and fall of Factory Records, featuring a host of big name characters from Joy Division, New Order and Happy Mondays. But while the film paid tribute to Manchester’s musical past, triumphant performances from local ones-to-watch False Advertising and firm favourites Everything Everything shone a torch towards the future. Here’s what went down.
