People Take Pictures of Each Other #1: Kalima - The Smiling Hour (1984)

I came across this the other day on the Dusty Sevens blog and was blown away to see such fantastic footage of the now-gone Church Street fruit and veg barrows in Manchester. There are also great shots of Piccadilly and The Royal Exchange as well as rooftop views of The Arndale. It made me wonder how much footage there is of 'old' Manchester out there as part of music videos. Publicly-available Manchester, that is, so no 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' on Little Peter Street as that was inside the rehearsal rooms. So I did some thinking and came up with six that highlight 'Manchester' within the M60, i.e. Manchester, Salford, Prestwich etc. Two Fall, one Buzzcocks, one New Order and one Smiths, which I'll be posting on a weekly-basis. In the meantime, if you can think of any more, leave a comment.
