Quote from Tony Wilson from the soundtrack CD with regards 'Pacific State':
"Perhaps the Manc classic. I have problems with the track merely because I can no longer separate the sound from a particular image. Steve Lock, then of Granada TV in Manchester, made a one hour doco on Madchester. And the core scene showed legions of cars, queuing, traipsing, searching, through an industrial estate in Blackburn in the early hours of the morning. (How many holes indeed?) All to the sound of 808 State's perfect tune. They were searching for a rave, the big one that was weekly up in North East Lancashire, until the Manchester gangs got too close. So the track is real soundtrack. Implying everything. Hopefully you'll have a flashback yourself..."
