22 Sept 2009
Route M62 
A reminder that tomorrow sees the unveiling of Blue Plaques in the Borough of Rochdale to commemorate and recognise two uniquely important recording venues/music buildings that influenced rock and pop music locally, nationally and internationally.

From 1974-1990 some of the most influential and celebrated recording artists of the era recorded or bought equipment at Kenion St in Rochdale (Tractor Music/Cargo Studios, then later Suite 16) and Tractor Sound Studios in Heywood.

The unveilings are the appetizer for a series of events throughout the day, culminating in a gig with Peter Hook and Section 25.

There will be a feature on Route M62 by Oli Wilson on BBC Radio Manchester in the morning but you can catch a sneak preview on soundcloud.com. Oli will also be doing a live interview with Hooky at 8.30am. With thanks to Oli on the Cerysmatic Factory Message Board.
