High Flying Birds – Any Road Will Get Us There
‘I’ve been on six-week tours of America and it breaks you open, but to do it straight off the bat, in the middle of winter, with three new girls… I was thinking, If we survive this, it’ll be a miracle… but it was the best time we’ve ever had.’ – Noel Gallagher

Of the great cities in the UK, there are few, if any, that can match the musical creativity and output of Manchester. With a history of rebellion and innovation, Manchester was one of the great centres of Northern Soul, a big punk player, the Post Punk capital, home to the Hacienda club, an Oasis of indie rock and a raving Madchester.
With bands like The Blinders, Cabbage Band, Man Made and Pale Waves there is no shortage of new talent from Undergrounds hometown. We have curated a collection of books that reflect the music culture of the city from Joy Division to The Buzzcocks, Factory Records and The Hacienda to Kevin Cummins, Oasis and the Stone Roses.
