Tony Wilson interviews Jonesy - "So It Goes"
Jonesy is back with another special episode in advance of the May 31 release of the limited series Pistol. Jonesy talks about the time Tony Wilson interviewed him on Jonesy’s Jukebox.
Wilson was made famous as the subject of the film 24 Hour Party People. Before that, he became etched in British music history as the TV presenter who gave the Sex Pistols their first exposure on television in Manchester. Wilson went on to co-found Factory Records with artists such as Joy Division, New Order, and Happy Mondays and was the founder and manager of the legendary Manchester nightclub the Hacienda. You’ll hear Tony Wilson describe witnessing the Sex Pistols' now-mythical first Lesser Free Trade Hall show, as later depicted in the film Control. As a journalist, Wilson came to interview Jonesy on his own show May 4, 2005. This episode took place two days before the last-minute appearance by Malcolm McLaren from last week's podcast.
