Sex, Drugs & Rock'n'Roll: Walks During Manchester International Festival
Sun 2 July 2017, 16:00 – 18:00 BST
Sex? Hopefully. Drugs? Probably. Rock ‘n’ Roll? Usually. All Three? Definitely … maybe, for Manchester is the party city, a hedonist’s dream, a dilettante’s delight.
Spend a Sunday afternoon with a cocktail of excess and revelry drunk by those overdosing on their own egos and out to lunch in their own lifetimes. Here are tales of opium eating, city centre cannabis farms and million pound recording budgets blown up and out of the nose, and of once-revered men brought down by their libidos. Yes, the seamy, seedy, sleazy, sexy, sordid side of the music business. Ed Glinert takes a walk on the wild side.
