Ede was the twin brother of Edward Ede, Sr.. The Ede brothers were both educated at Abingdon School and both became cricketers, playing for Hampshire (Hampshire County Cricket Club). Ede was Hampshires captain from 1864 to 1869. His brother Edward played for the county side from 1861 to 1870. Ede was the first player to score a half century for the county club. Career The Longcut formed in Manchester in 2002, while attending the University of Manchester. Originally a four-piece, their vocalist left soon after the band started and the remaining members intended to make purely instrumental music. In 2003 their experiments with cheap drum machines led to a new sound and their unusual stage setup. The band's original sound and energetic live performances brought them to the attention of the record industry in 2004, eventually signing to Liverpool's Deltasonic label. During 2004 the band also became friends with Manchester promoters Akoustik Anarkhy and indie grunge band, Nine Black Alps. The two groups shared bills together at various house parties (one in Longsight was filmed for the video to ''Transition'') organised by Akoustik Anarkhy and The Longcut, eventually touring together in early 2006.

was deeply influenced by Campbell's native Liverpool, and much of his later work is set in the real locales of Liverpool and Merseyside. In particular, his 2005 novel ''Secret Stories'' (published in the U.S. in an abridged edition Joshi, S. T., ''Classics and Contemporaries'', Hippocampus Press 2009, p.131. as ''Secret Story'' (2006)) both exemplifies and satirizes Liverpudlian speech, characters, humor, and culture. thumb left 200px From the Roaring twenties#Tolerance towards other groups Roaring Twenties (File:Motzstrassenfest2006.jpg) and the time of Weimar culture: a meeting point for homosexuals, described by Klaus Mann and Christopher Isherwood: the area at Berlins Nollendorfplatz and Motzstrasse Some areas are often associated with being "gay" cities or resorts, due to their image and acceptance of the gay community. Examples include San Francisco, Manchester, Brighton and Liverpool in the UK, Sydney, Cape Town and the Greek island of Mykonos. Manchester's (Manchester) gay village (Canal Street (Manchester)) is within Greater Manchester's (Greater Manchester) main central business district and is the centre for the city's pride events. The village is based on Canal Street (Canal Street (Manchester)), so ''The Gay Village'' and ''Canal Street'' are terms used interchangeably when describing the area. The ''Queer as Folk (Queer as Folk (UK))'' storyline was set in Manchester and much of the series was filmed in the city's gay village. Gay scenes from Britain's (United Kingdom) ITV serial drama ''Coronation Street'' (also based in the city) were filmed around Canal Street. Birmingham, UK and Liverpool also have large vibrant 'Gay Villages' based in their city centres. Birmingham's village is based on Hurst Street and Liverpool's gay quarter (Liverpool gay quarter) is based around the Stanley Street area. Liverpool is the first city in the UK to install street signage bearing the rainbow coloured Gay Pride flag (Rainbow flag (LGBT movement)).

'''Liverpool''' ( The city is within the historic county (Historic counties of England) of Lancashire. Its urbanisation and expansion were largely brought about by its status as a major port (Port of Liverpool), which included its participation in the Atlantic slave trade. Liverpool was the port of registry of the ocean liner RMS ''Titanic'' (RMS Titanic), and many other Cunard (Cunard Line) and White Star (White Star Line) ocean liners such as the RMS ''Lusitania'' (RMS Lusitania), ''Queen Mary (RMS Queen Mary)'', and ''Olympic (RMS Olympic)''.

Liverpool's status as a port city has contributed to its diverse population, which, historically, was drawn from a wide range of peoples, cultures, and religions, particularly those from Ireland. The city is also home to the oldest Black African community (Black British) in the country and the oldest Chinese community (British Chinese) in Europe. Natives of Liverpool are referred to as '''Liverpudlians''' (from a long-standing jocular alteration of 'Liverpool' to 'Liverpuddle') and colloquially as "Scousers", a reference to "scouse (scouse (food))", a form of stew. The word "Scouse" has also become synonymous with the Liverpool accent (accent (sociolinguistics)) and dialect. Many people "self-identify" as Liverpudlians or Scousers without actually being born or living within the city boundaries of Liverpool. Many people from within the greater Merseyside area consider themselves thus, although many do not. Conversely, a number of people from Liverpool itself may not consider themselves Scousers, since the term for them may have pejorative overtones.

Tourism forms a significant part of the city's modern economy. The city celebrated its 800th anniversary in 2007, and it held the European Capital of Culture title together with Stavanger, Norway, in 2008. Labelled the "World Capital City of Pop" by ''Guinness World Records'', the popularity of The Beatles, and other groups from the Merseybeat (Beat music) era and later, contributes to Liverpool's status as a tourist destination.

Several areas of Liverpool city centre were granted World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in 2004. The Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City includes the Pier Head, Albert Dock, and William Brown Street. Liverpool is also the home of two Premier League football (Association football) clubs, Liverpool (Liverpool F.C.) and Everton (Everton F.C.). Matches between the two are known as the Merseyside derby. The world-famous Grand National also takes places annually at Aintree Racecourse on the outskirts of the city.
