Mr Monkey visits Punk at Urbis

"This might be the best bit"

Mr Monkey looking at the Manchester section of the exhibition Mr Monkey leaving the exhibition

Mr Monkey was glad to see that the exhibition wasn't just about the Sex Pistols and things made by Vivienne Westwood. There's a special section about the Mancunian punk scene - the Buzzcocks, John Cooper Clarke, Slaughter and the Dogs and others. It was right grim up North in those days so they couldn't afford Westwood clothes, which was probably all for the best. There's a great collection of clippings, fanzines, letters and badges from Manchester here.
