Haçienda Classics 
Hacienda Classics original tape

The full story of how the original Haçienda Classics compilation for the tenth birthday of FAC 51 The Haçienda never came to be was told in Scream City 2 by moist back in the mists of 2006. With the recent discovery of those compact cassette tapes (see untreated photo above of cassette one side one) we thought it an opportune moment to bring the original tracklisting into the digital age via Spotify. Various tracks (approximately one third - indicated [x]) are not available for whatever reason but our 'Haçienda Classics selection' playlist is presented for your pleasure.

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."
