Hacienda comes to The Ashley Brook 
From the Salford Star:

Special Salford Night For Hooky's New Book!

"The Hacienda's coming to Salford at last!" says Peter Hook, who together with friends in Langworthy has arranged a special night at the Ashley Brook pub on Liverpool Street as a benefit for the new Christie radiotherapy centre at Salford Royal Hospital.

"I'll be DJing with another Hacienda DJ and signing books" says Hooky "We did a signing in Manchester and my friend Twinny said we should do a Hacienda night in Salford which we're well overdue."

The Hacienda Comes To Salford Night will be at the Ashley Brook pub, 28th November, entrance by donation to Christies.

A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
