Johnny Marr’s video for his latest single New Town Velocity was shot around various buildings and areas of Greater Manchester and is based on the Psychogeography philosophy of the Situationist Movement. The song is taken from this years critically acclaimed album The Messenger and was inspired by Marr’s own story of the day he left school aged fifteen to pursue a life as a musician and features him in the council estate of Wythenshawe where he grew up. It was directed by David Barnes who directed the Upstarts video and art directed by Subset.
