4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Read, 2 Jan 2010
This review is from: The Hacienda: How Not to Run a Club (Hardcover)
From a personal point of view, my interest in the axis of this book faded from the beginning. I loved joy Division, enjoyed some of New Orders stuff and loathed the whole dance scene which followed (the House/Acid /Trance scene). Added to which, I've never been to Manchester, nor visited the Hacienda, so I was fairly neutral to say the least about this. It's therefore worth stating that the book is fascinating, leads nicely from one year to another, and paints a frank picture of the whole Madchester thing as seen from within. No excuses are offered, nor blame for the faliure of a club which could have made money as well as headlines.
If you listened to music or went to clubs from 1980 to 2000, you'll find it an interesting read, and to my mind a worthwhile one. Well worth getting.
