Little Voice, What Now: Horrocks covers Manchester indie classics

If you didn't already love Jane Horrocks, her low-key project covering tracks by Manchester's indie heroes is surely going to win you over.

She told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph about the plan:

“I thought they were so interesting with female voices, and you heard the lyrics in a different way, and I thought I'd like to do that with a couple of my favourite songs — and these are indeed my favourite songs. I’m a massive fan of Joy Division, I love their music — particularly the lyrics.”
She's going to poke them out via iTunes over the coming weeks, and once she's had a crack at Morrissey and Curtis, she's planning to do Hawkwind and Cabaret Voltaire.

Michael Caine is unavailable for comment.
