Manchester: Looking for the Light through the Pouring Rain – Paperback

Manchester: Looking for the Light through the Pouring Rain is a portrait of the bands, the city, and the times that shaped two generations of teenagers and changed the course of pop music. Whether the subject is Joy Division, Buzzcocks, The Smiths, or Oasis, Kevin Cummins’ exquisite photographs capture the anarchic energy of the Manchester pop moment. This stunning visual record of the city and its pop history is complemented by four textual contributions from Paul Morley, Stuart Maconie, Gavin Martin, and John Harris. Cummins’ photographic record of the past 30 years captures the highs, the lows, and the transcendent pop moments of Manchester’s most famous sons.
