Took my copy of this book back almost immediately to Waterstones Manchester after finding it in “The Works” for one third of the price.

not sure what that cedilla is doing there


Ditto, although there is a reason behind it

"Even though the cedilla isn’t used in the Spanish spelling of the word hacienda, it was included in the name of the club because it meant that 'çi' resembled 51."

Let’s make a thread on it....


well, a thread on superfluous, wrong or unnecessary accents would be fun

I guess there'd only be the 2 of us

A good read, some good memories to the 1980s.

Fairly straightforward once you're used to it all but if you have any questions please feel free to drop me a PM
I was more into the Hardcore elements back in the day, but now find it all fascinating. Just ordered it! Thanks to the OP!
OOS
Great spot...was just about to get stuck in to Substance - Inside New Order which has been sat on my bookshelf for ages now! Will need to pull my finger out as its 768 pages

There appears to be two versions of The Hacienda (both paperbacks) on The Works website...does anybody know the difference?...apart from one is £3 and the other £7.99
Still in stock by the way?
Good deal for your first one, OP!

Not buying, mind, but I've ordered it from the library (I'd sooner pay 80p and give it back than pay £3 and have yet another book to pack or dispose of next time I move).

Heat added.
“Here’s a review of this book: Legendary venue the Haçienda had windows but no cloakroom, and lost owners New Order millions. “

Less of a review, more of a Cliff Notes one page summary. No comment from them whether the book’s any good or not.....
Is a great book for those that are asking. Read it when it was released a few years ago. If I remember it included who played there each month & copies of accounts as the money just vanished!
I was there a few times in the early 90s, really was rather banging.

Now it's a block of flats.

I much prefer 'Madchester' to 'Property Investmenmanchester'

Heat just because it was the Hacienda... What a club!
My mum worked there through the 80s. She always joked she wanted Julie Walters to play her in the film.
Out of Stock

Great read and great price - heat added. Peter Hook's books are a really good read although he does like to emphasise how much him and Sumner don't get on!
