24 Hour Party People recreates the influential era of the Manchester music scene that flourished between the years of 1976 and 1992 with reckless exuberance. Tony Wilson is the man who was responsible for making it all happen. A television reporter by day, Wilson also led a notorious double life as band manager, label president, and club owner. Fiercely determined and dangerously stubborn, Wilson's energy gave an entire subculture of Manchester youths their place in the spotlight, forever changing the face of popular music in the process.
