Joe started working with Mancunian poet Mike Garry
in the summer of 2013. They went into in the studio to
record a new version of Mike's legendary eulogy to
Anthony H Wilson, with music arrangements inspired

Annual Fundraiser by Bernard Sumer and composer
Philip Glass. They joined the New Order set

band, Philip on piano and a guest appearance by Iggy
