Laurence Stephen Lowry, better known as L.S. Lowry, is born in Stretford, Lancashire, England, UK. His distinctive paintings of urban landscapes peopled with human figures, often referred to as "matchstick men", will become hugely popular. The 1968 Status Quo hit Pictures Of Matchstick Men will be based on his work and, in 1978, Brian And Michael will reach No1 in the UK Singles Chart with Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs. Lowry also gets a namecheck in the chorus of the Manic Street Preachers 2013 song 30-Year War.
