Tony Wilson | Factory Records
'Ubiquitous Granada TV talking head, pop cultural conceptualist, entrepreneur and bullshitter,' was The Cut magazine's recent description of Anthony Wilson. "Yes, very accurate," the Factory Records supremo agreed when I put it to him. "Although the one thing left out was the academic side," Wilson ponders. "Maybe 'bullshitter' is where the word 'intellectual' comes in, because I fundamentally regard myself as an academic, which could of course be determined as a bullshitter."
