About The Author
Andy Murray is Northern Soul‘s Music & Film Editor. He has been an arts freelancer since 1999, initially for City Life magazine and more recently for Big Issue North, among others. He edited a story anthology for Comma Press, and currently teaches Film Journalism at the University of Salford. Originally from Timperley, Andy can’t recall ever seeing Frank Sidebottom down the local Spar. But he does have vivid childhood memories of being menaced by big boys when trying to cross the bridge onto the local field – boys who are now better known as key members of The Stone Roses. He is, needless to say, not the Scottish tennis guy. But he did once receive a publicity photograph of him to sign by mistake.
