Just a reminder that there will be a DJ SET from 808 State at Manchester Academy on Saturday 13th May. I hear that many people had a fantastic time at the last one and I assure you this will be just as good - if not even better! Would recommend getting tickets now if you are coming along as they are selling quite quick - might not be any left on the night.
Hope to see you there...

Hallelujah: - As the summer sun rises over Madchester once again, acid-fuelled memories of baggy pants, bandanas and smiley-face t shirts become reality, and the city gets ready to party like its 1988. Think back to the days when Mondays were Happy, 808 was the name of a state and Hacienda was more than just a Spanish word - to an era that produced the most definitive soundtrack ever, for each generation to follow. 808 State, Jon Da Silva and A Guy Called Gerald lead the revolution in the clubs, while Clint Boon and the Freaky Dancin’ Bez lead the revolution on the stage. Oh, and there was some label called Factory Records run by a guy called Anthony Wilson. And for one summer evening only, Madchester is back “in the area”, with all six legendary outfits taking to the stage once more - for the party of the decade…. And God made Madchester.
