More Dylan [Sep. 28th, 2005|11:33 am]
Tony Grist
The second part of the Dylan film has great footage of him talking to the press. The reporters are asking stupid and/or pompous questions and he's swatting them away like flies, mainly saying "no" or turning the question back on the questioner, but it's all good humoured and he's giggling at the inanity and some of the press people are laughing right along. I guess what we're seeing here is the birth of celebrity culture.

The film ends with the incident on the English tour where some protesting folkie in the audience shouts "Judas" and he replies "You're a liar; I don't believe you-" then turns to The Band and tells them to "play it fucking loud." That happened here- in Manchester's Free Trade Hall (now a hotel.) Epic stuff.

It is? Goodness! You can tell how long it is since I revisited my home city. I have fond memories of the Free Trade Hall, having been to many many concerts there both classical (Halle Orchestra) and pop (including a memorable one with Tyrannosuarus Rex (before they became T. Rex)). John Peel read a weird story and there were only a few hundred in the audience. Also our school held its annual speech day there so I've been on the Free Trade Hall stage myself, singing with the choir.

Manchester now has a modern concert hall and- well- I guess the old one wasn't needed any more. They've kept the shell as it was, but the insides have been completely remodelled. I think it's all rather sad.
