The press launch of the Necessary Group website took place at Manchester's Urbis Centre on Friday 13th February 2004. The website www.itsnecessary.co.uk (developed by Magnetic North), and the flag (designed by Peter Saville) were presented to media people who then took part in a pub-style quiz. Guests included Felicity Goodey (A, B) and Peter Saville (C,D).
I was shattered by the news on Friday 11 August 2007, that Tony Wilson died. He had been suffering from cancer. Brilliant and flawed, Tony Wilson was one of the most dynamic and influential people ever to emerge from Manchester. Manchester and Mancunians will suffer badly through his loss.
