To complement Eileen Simpson and Ben White’s Everything I Have Is Yours, an artists’ film which looks back to the first decade of the UK pop charts, Salford Museum and Art Gallery is hosting a conversation with music journalist Paul Morley.

He wrote for the New Musical Express from 1977 to 1983 and has since written for a wide range of publications.

He was a co-founder of the record label ZTT Records and was a member of the synthpop group Art of Noise.

The veteran reporter will delve into the themes behind Everything I Have Is Yours.

Everything I Have Is Yours is a film and sound work by Eileen Simpson and Ben White that looks back to the first decade of the UK pop charts (1952-62).

Working with a group of older musicians, many of whom were the ‘original teenagers’ of the Greater Manchester music scene, now in their 70s and 80s.

The film focuses on this diverse group as they re-engage with public-domain samples from the formative era of the ‘birth of pop’, and incorporate these sounds into new musical creations.

Eileen Simpson and Ben White (Open Music Archive) were both born in Manchester.
