Guardian: Tony Wilson's Funeral

The Guardian just ran a really touching account of the funeral of Tony Wilson, pillar of the 70s-80s Manchester music scene and subject of the film 24-Hour Party People. Engraved vinyl invitations; A wreath in the shape of a turntable; A black and silver coffin marched to the strains of New Order...I'm all misty.
