If you've been paying any attention to the reading section of this blog you'd be inclined to think I don't read very much. I don't blame you. It's a logical assumption to make seeing as I've only written two posts on what I've been reading in the past two years.

The Hacienda: How Not To Run A Club

The Hacienda: How Not To Run A Club

I've just finished reading Peter Hook's book about legendary Manchester club, The Haçienda. Entitled The Haçienda: How Not To Run A Club it's mostly about the staff that worked there, the musicians and DJs that played there and how New Order/Joy Division paid to keep the whole thing running. I won't say running smoothly because now that I've read the book I know that would be a lie.
