Overheard

This landed in the FUC51 inbox:

Overheard last night outside Jabez Clegg, spoken by one of those girls with an annoying Southern accent and a speech inflection whereby everything sounds like a question...

"I'm going to Fac251 on Friday? Its like this club yeah? The Hacienda? But like it shut down yeah because nobody bought any of their drugs?"

I don't know what they are teaching them at University these days.

I picked up a flyer for Fac251 as well, looks like Mani has got a weekly Djing residency there. Who could have seen that one coming?

  2. Unfortunately I've already seen some students on a few blogs I go on saying they are going to the Hacienda launch and heard that it was a big club back in the day, they've packed their shades, skinny jeans and fluro-facepaint ready to relive that crazy 80's era. Or was it 90's? oh who gives a fuck as long as they can tell their mates back in Bangor they went to the Hacienda.

  3. I think everyone entering Fac251 'The Factory' (NOT the Hacienda you silly illeducated uncool students) should be asked what it previously was and why its so important.

    It annoys me when people talk with conviction that they know what it is/wa when clearly they don't. Grrr.

    And for the record, the Madchester movement and Manchester's music heritage IS important but the music that's coming out of the city/region now is more important.

    Mancheter's past music can be looked at fondly BUT we should be trading on current music greats comnig from 'our' city - I Am Austin, The Jessie Rose Trip, The Paris Riots, Delphic, Dutch Uncles, Gideon Conn, etc, etc

    BE SAVAGED

  5. Manchester had a very strong music scene prior to Madchester....or were you too young to rememeber.
    MADchester happened when the perry boys were given guitars and sequencers. Those who love music didn't pay attention and moved on.
    Feeding E to the typing pool was never a great idea.
    I've seen many great bands at the Hac ...Mani was never in any of them.

  9. I like this blog though, keep on with it. People moaning about it being one-sided are missing the point. It's a fucking blog, not the BBC World Service

  10. Gideon Conn is a fucking abomination.

    Acoustic scat (and the 'scat' in this instance refers to the adult movie kind) tripe for twee cunts who weave yoghurt.

  11. Fuck me, you've made 'Londonderry' by Gideon come on in my head, you utter cunt. I'm going to have to kill myself with a hammer.

    "While Robb serves up a dewy-eyed anecdote about the first time he saw The Stone Roses, Jay volleys back with a fruity recollection about his time working with Tony Wilson at Factory."

  13. oh my fucking god, mr/mrs fuc51 you need to do a full post about that horrific john robb interview. banging on about factory et al then saying 'but of course we're nothing to do with that and we'd never mention them to make headway'. seriously john robb is the most embarrassing scumfucking cunt to come out of manchester. he's practically illiterate, has jackshit of interest to say about anyone, has done more damage to the city than anyone else (yes, even hooko and cunt boon) and was a regular on those vile 'remember the 80s' tv shows (proof if it were needed that robb makes a living out of nostalgia & fake memories about a music scene that HE WAS NEVER A PART OF). dunno about that other guy but robb is #1 on the manchester shitlist. if he wasn't such a brainddead moron he'd be evil, as it is he's just a dipshit trampling his way through a shoddy fail-ridden career earning a buck by screwing over the future of Manchester.

  14. "john robb is the most embarrassing scumfucking cunt to come out of manchester"

    Isn't John Robb from Blackpool?

  15. John Robb's actually from Fleetwood, so that should be "john robb is the most embarrassing scumfucking cunt to come out of Fleetwood'

    I think the creator of this has sour grapes.

    blinkers on and you are quite naive,
    Manchester has been capital of english creativity in music and other mediums for quite some town. The hacienda and other such things became a thing for the people in manchester stories it's southerners that buy the books etc because they will never hear of the word of mouth stories and experiences and manchester is producing fresh music just so fresh the big record labels don't want to gamble on something so new and the creativity of manchester and salford is recognized by the big bosses nowadays with huge media business the bbc comes down here and...manchester was the reason punk got a chance and is the reason dance music got a chance now appriciate it or it will carry on strong without you, you self righteous prick!

  19. Two points

    I do recall that 'New Order Play At Home' on C4 in the Summer of '84 being both smug and exhilaratingly shit. Someone close should have shot that cunt Erasmus at birth

    The Factory Allstars rank up there with The Taliban

  22. Yep, Mani's got a weekly slot - wonder if it'll be like his Revolution slot which usually featured about an hour of DJing followed by something along the lines of 'I'm bored now, I need a drink, there's noone here'. Still, if he's given up the sauce perhape he'll be more focused - like at his Beat Club residency where (if you check out the Facebook photo albums) he's strangely conspicuous by his absence behind the decks! Oh, and fellow anon who commented on Mr Robb, funny thing is, for such an authoritarian on Manchester he spent most of his formative years in bloody Blackpool where he was born (and belongs).
