Today (August 10) marks the anniversary of Tony Wilson's death; the Factory Records founder passed away in 2007. As an homage to the legendary label owner, Manchester musician Joe Duddell and poet Mike Garry have teamed up for a song titled "St. Anthony : An Ode to Anthony H Wilson" and it's received some high-profile cameos in the accompanying video.
New Order's Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert make appearances, as do Iggy Pop, Mark E. Smith and Steve Coogan, who played Wilson in the mockumentary 24 Hour Party People.
The track will be released as a single on August 14 through Skinny Dog, with proceeds going to the Christie Charitable Fund.
