  • Mr Manchester & The Factory Girl


Known as "Mr. Manchester," Wilson ran the infamous Factory Records and was a key figure in the stories of those local Manchester bands that achieved global fame, including Joy Division, the Happy Mondays, and New Order. As Wilson’s first wife, Lindsay Reade bore witness to the crucial early stages of his career, as well as the now-legendary years of excess and idealism that led to the birth of the era-defining "Madchester" scene.

Here, Reade reveals the juicy details of the Wilsons' marriage, life behind the scenes at Factory Records, and her encounters with icons such as Sid Vicious, Iggy Pop, Ian Curtis, and Leonard Cohen. Mr Manchester and the Factory Girl is the story of a legend, delivered from the inside and unique to the author.
