INTRODUCING SUNNY MANCHESTER

Sunny Manchester is a Manchester based promotion company with a difference. With a focus on quality of music rather than attracting already established fan basses, Sunny Manchester prove themselves to be a true promoter of the arts rather than a quick money making scheme.Showcasing indie pop, indie rock and neo-psychedelia Sunny Manchester have their finger on the pulse when it comes to pointing out the upcoming trends within the independent music scene, whilst giving relatively unknown bands a chance to strut their stuff. The company as whole displays an aire of indie-pride, beautifully illustrated in the colourful and unusual promotional materials. For example, the first flyer depicted an almost zombie looking bear stood on a beach ball next to a kawaii satellite and a slightly scary silhouette fellow, with teeth like arrows, who appears to be melting…”  /Full text at: http://www.therealmusic.net/introducing-sunny-manchester//

2012's Best: Act I

It was such an amazing year of music: writers, producers, musicians, and singers were overwhelmingly creative and brilliance was everywhere.

40. Julia Holter, “In the Same Room”

39. Twigs, “Ache”

38. Eight and a Half, Go Ego”

37. Advance Base, “Summer Music”

34. The Daydream Club, “On the Move (Part II)”

Zayn Malik/Liam Payne
Word count: 24.7K
Summary:

Zayn felt his heart thudding uncomfortably loud as Liam’s words sunk in. Until I met you. He was frantically trying to think of a way to tell Liam that he felt the same way when Liam continued, “When the ship docks, I’m getting off with you, Zayn.”

“Liam,” Zayn said, taking the other boys face in both his own hands, “That’s insane.” He whispered and Liam pressed his lips to Zayn’s in response.

“I know, it doesn’t make any sense,” Liam said as they broke apart. “But it feels right… we-us together… I feel safe with you. This feels right.”

Or loosely based on the 1997 movie Titanic: In April of 1912, Liam Payne is a wealthy first class passenger aboard the ill-fated ship, RMS Titanic. He is engaged to a girl he’s known since birth and is sailing from England to America to marry her against his will. After meeting third class passenger, artist Zayn Malik, he realizes that his life doesn’t have to follow the path that he always thought it would. Fate brought them together but will it also tear them apart?


(I wrote this back in like February and I wasn’t going to post it but I figured I shouldn’t let my hard work just sit around. I’ll be honest, I haven’t actually read the whole thing and haven’t proofread it since like May so it might actually be terrible.

I want to thank Jope @ultimatelyzayn for beta’ing the portions that she did. I really appreciate it and I hope you’re not offended that I posted it without it being beta’d all the way through.

And don’t make fun of the edit, I made it myself…)
