Terry Christian to interview ‘Madchester’ rapper

      
Award-winning TV and radio presenter Terry Christian will visit the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) to help host an exclusive screening of independent film ‘Nish Clish Banging – The MC Tunes Tapes’.

In association with Tony Rigg from the Laboratory Project, Christian will host the feature film, interview MC Tunes and film maker Howard Walmsley before leading a Q&A session to dissect the artist’s colourful history and the making of the film.  

The film, which is screened on Thursday 15 November in UCLan’s Mitchell and Kenyon Cinema free of charge, depicts the real life story of seminal British hip hop artist MC Tunes.

A rapper from Moss Side in Manchester, Tunes was one of the big promoters of the ‘Madchester’ era during the 1980s and 1990s, also fronting highly respected bands such as 808 State and Dust Junkys.

His fascinating story ensures that both film and music enthusiasts will be treated to a spectacle providing a rich and temporal insight into fashion, culture, the media and the music business.

“It’s a real coup to have Terry Christian, MC Tunes and Howard Walmsley host the screening of this independent film and we look forward to welcoming our special guests to the University."

Tickets are free for this event and will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis from the University’s Foster Reception.

Les Gillon from the School of Art, Design and Performance at UCLan commented: “It’s a real coup to have Terry Christian, MC Tunes and Howard Walmsley host the screening of this independent film and we look forward to welcoming our special guests to the University.
