Manchester born poet, artist and musician Edward Barton who wrote songs for Kylie Minogue and Orbital will be giving a performance lecture musically assisted by The Babymen. He will give a playful insight into his music making methods and lyrical techniques.

All you need to bring for this one is a pen and paper, but most importantly, an open-mind!

Barton is known for his eccentric stage performances and use of home-made instruments. He has had top 30 success as a songwriter with hits including 'It's a Fine Day' (Opus III), 'Confide in Me' (Kylie Minogue), 'Halcyon' (Orbital) and 'Happiness' (Pizzaman). In 1989, released through Barton's own label Wooden Records, an LP called Edward Not Edward featured covers of Barton songs by diverse artists like The Inspiral Carpets, 808 State, Dub Sex, Ted Chippington, Louis Phillipe and A Guy Called Gerald. Barton was a regular fixture of the eighties music scene in Manchester, supporting bands such as Stump. His television appearances have included performances on The Tube and Tony Wilson's The Other Side of Midnight. He was rumoured to have appeared on Wogan in the late 80s playing guitar in Tears for Fears' backing band. His radio appearances have included at least one guest spot on The Mark Radcliffe Show.
