Brian & Michael talk about Matchstalk Men & Matchstalk Cats & Dogs
L.S. Lowry, lived in Mottram from 1948 until his death in 1976. Today's post on Hyde Daily Photo features the bronze statue of Lowry seated on a bench located next to the junction of Hyde Road and Stalybridge Road. There is also a close-up picture of the statue on my photoblog Sithenah.
Local duo Brian & Michael created a new audience for Lowry when they recorded their One Hit Wonder Matchstalk Men & Matchstalk Cats & Dogs. In this video they talk about why Kevin is Brian, and how St. Winifred's Choir came to sing on the record, but not Top of The Pops.
