Manchester, England: "Lowry-loving. Boundry shoving."

Lowry-loving
Boundry shoving
Cottonmilled...
Bomb-rocked
Unbroken...

--from Carole Houlston's "Manchester".

It's a mean old town to live in by yourself. Ah, Manchester. In America, imagine a Happy, Revived Gary, Indiana. A Pittsburgh with Passion and Hope. Cleveland with Glitz. Cincinnati with Biceps. Or, in Albion itself, London Unpoofed. Fabled, wonderfully gritty and real, this ancient second city once had an economic school of thought named after it, via England's Prime Minister Disraeli. It's got one of everything. No one here pines for London. Shameless, and smart, any waif here will kick your ass, Justin.


Mean Town Blues

Play loud. Non-Limp Music. Manchesterism.
