    He had a negative bluety on a quackhandle and was quadraspazzed on a lifeglug.

    I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

      Big fan of Manchester music and House music in general.

      I never got to the Hac, despite being only 20 odd miles down the East Lancs, and Liverpool did have Cream.

      (Even that was toppy for a student, and Medication was same venue and it was £1 a bottle!)

        Sent the link to a friend of mine who loves her clubbing and she's a happy bunny, so thank you for sharing!

        Staying with her mum though during the lock down, who may be less enthused...

            I did.

            I was there for its last weekend thanks to one of my housemates.

            (I was in a houseshare were people liked different types of music so to expand our horizons we went to different nights out. )

              An iconic club but not the only one. Just happened to be the one with the biggest DJs and biggest drug issues - where the local dealers came together to overcharge the rich and stupid. You'd have known faces like the late Massey and Noonan turfing invading out-of-town firms out who wanted in on the acid house/ecstasy scene.

              Even the wrong Manchester firms were taught lessons. Heard a story back in the day about one of them going round to a certain gang's pub tooled up. Saw one of the lads' dogs outside. Next thing you know, the dog's head is on the pool table with alleged psycho stating that if the gang don't stay away from the Hacienda, it will be a human head next. Completely ruined the cloth on the table.

              That said, Paul Massey was reputedly a proud local too, making sure that people who were ejected for non-violent reasons weren't ejected violently like some clubs had a horrible reputation for.

              I didn't go until after it was shut down in 1991 for violence, including inspectors seeing someone being hit over the head with a crowbar and chucked in front of a passing car. I suspect it had lost a bit of its magic at that time but I still had some great nights there, plus at the Boardwalk and other local venues, including the Friday night rock all-nighter at Jilly's.
              The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he didn't exist

                    Hooky's book describing what you mentioned (and more besides!) is a good read. The amount of money New Order just pi$$ed away to keep the Hac open is crackers.
