Alison Wells was born and raised in Altrincham, a market town eight miles southwest of Manchester, in the north of England. She has a love for local guitar groups which started in September 1978; when she witnessed Joy Division play a gig at Band on The Wall. That night she met and fell in love with Jimmy Smith, a fifteen-year-old lad from Stretford. Jimmy was 365 days older than Alison, it felt strange they shared birthdays a year apart. Over three decades they fell in love with; Joy Division, Magazine, New Order, The Smiths, Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses and Oasis. In 1995 Jimmy suffered an acquired brain injury when he was involved in a car accident. He was in a coma for four and a half years. When he wakened, he had total memory loss; he couldn’t remember his marriage to Alison or the reason they divorced. Jimmy had no family left, only Alison would be able to help him remember, but she had to tread carefully; the secrets she guarded could destroy him. Would nostalgic musical journeys down memory lane draw them together again? Or could his returning memory uncover something bad; something Alison didn’t want Jimmy to remember?
