More column inches saying, well, nothing at all. Play 'Manchester music bingo' with the piece and fill your card in a paragraph.
Freelance music journalists have to pitch for work. And Manchester's full of them - many with something genuinely positive to say about the city. Many of them probably find it a little irritating that another dull feature retreading the same old ground is going to be what the majority of outsiders see as going on here in 2010. This is over, well, the other 95% that's going on that's actually worthwhile.
