Tony Wilson is one of the most legendary music industry figures of his generation. Nicknamed Mr Manchester, he transformed the Northern music scene as founder of Factory Records and the Hacienda nightclub after earning a cult following as a television presenter. Working with legendary bands such as Joy Division, New Order, and the Happy Mondays, Wilson was at the very heart of the Manchester music phenomenon and regenerated the culture of an entire city. Celebrated music journalist Paul Morley knew Wilson personally, and is uniquely placed to tell the fascinating and intimate story of his life. In this remarkable book, Morley explores Wilson's existence through the eyes of those closest to him, and offers a rare insight into his own personal papers and diaries. F*@K 'Em! paints a portrait of a 'compelling, unique hybrid of selfish visionary, TV hack, charming bully, generous tyrant, commissioning editor, playful philosopher, inconsistent genius, and down-to-earth intellectual' - and cultural icon.
Writer, broadcaster, and cultural critic Paul Morley has written about music, art, and entertainment since the 1970s. He wrote for the New Musical Express from 1977 to 1983 and has also been a band manager as well as a television presenter. A founding member of the electronic collective Art of Noise and a member of staff at the Royal Academy of Music, Morley is the author of Ask: Chatter of Pop; Words and Music: A History of Pop in the Shape of a City; Piece by Piece: Writing About Joy Division 1977-2007; Earthbound; The North; and Nothing, while he also collaborated with Grace Jones on her memoir, I'll Never Write My Memoirs. Morley's most recent book is the Sunday Times bestseller The Age of Bowie.
