Ok... they're not a Manchester band, but they are playing Manchester Arena on the Saturday night, so I'm going to suggest the following Deep Purple tracks -

1) Hush - what we no longer say to kids making a noise in our galleries!
2) Bloodsucker - a song about trying to get funding
3) Blood from a Stone - another song about trying to get funding...
4) No On Came - every curator's fear about their exhibition
5) Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming - every museum worker, every day ;-)
6) Above and beyond - also every museum worker, every day
7) Bananas - what we all feel in the lead up to an opening
8) Perfect Strangers - that person you've never met before who has just sat down next to you at conference. They work in museums too - talk to them!
9) All I got is You - the Museum Director when they want something done urgently...

oh - and just to show I'm no one trick pony

ELP - Pictures at an Exhibition (whole album, naturally!)

How is the Happy Mondays‘‘ Step On not on this list? This could become a membership revocation issue ;-)
