The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream show in Toronto

Went to see The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream show in Toronto last night!

The musicianship was top notch for these silver foxes. No slowing down the tempo for any of the cover versions or original material. The reenactments did get cheesy but kept the show funny but balanced with their raucous performances.

Six years ago today we lost Tony Wilson, TV presenter, Record label guru and Club manager.

Words synonymous with Tony Wilson:

  • Factory Records
  • Hacienda
  • Madchester
  • Joy Division
  • New Order

  • So it goes TV series (featuring fantastic performances by Sex Pistols, The Jam, The Clash, The Buzzcocks, The Stranglers and Siouxsie and The Banshees)

Mr Manchester had a passion for music and his finger on the pulse culture and new sounds.

Will there ever be another Tony Wilson?
