The Gold Road To Glasgow Green
On Friday 5th August, there will be a very special evening taking place at in Greenock. Mancunian music *legend*, Steve the Adj Atherton will be interviewed by local promoter, DJ and college lecturer Andrew McD McDermid about his forthcoming book The Evolution of Manc.
Steve is a well-respected tour manager and renowned raconteur, who has enthralled people with his music-business stories for many years. Steve has worked with many bands through his work for SJM Promotions, including The Coral, The Courteeners and The Seahorses, but he is probably best known for being the day-to-day manager (or *soul stroker*, as he puts it) for The Stone Roses.
Manchesters 'movers and shakers' have been persuading Steve to put pen to paper and write his memoirs - rock and roll and otherwise - for a very long time, so in 2014 'The Evolution of Manc' finally began!
As a special showcase for this long awaited *book-in-the-making*, it seemed fitting that Steve should come to Greenock and be interviewed by McD, as he booked the Stone Roses in 1988 (a no-show) but promoted the legendary secret Seahorses gig in Greenock Ricos in 1996. Steve was also here with The Paris Angels (his brothers band) when they played in 1991.
Steve will be talking to McD and reading out excerpts from The Evolution of Manc, as he gives a 'taster' of his incredible experiences over the years from being captured by the *Sons of Charles Manson*, to finding himself in possession of a US Secret government document!
The Evolution of Manc documents Steves journey into the music industry after growing up in Manchester, including: co-founding the School of Sound Recording Studios at Spirit Studios; setting up the first ever (illegal) all night warehouse party in Manchester; and - of course - touring with The Stone Roses!
The Evolution of Manc is not just a thoroughly entertaining (and often hilarious) autobiography; it will be THE definitive Stone Roses book and a must-read for all fans of the band.
This special event will be the first opportunity in Scotland to hear excerpts from the book in an intimate setting and will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
