Keen-eyed readers will have already noticed I posted almost the same message in a post on the other blog. A post which features a fucking incredible New Order song. I'm currently reading Peter Hook's The Haçienda: How Not To Run A Club so I'm digging out all of that old Manchester shit.
The same book made me watch Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll yesterday, starring Andy Serkis as Ian Dury. Not sure if Ian Dury ever played The Haçienda, but he probably did. If he didn't, it doesn't matter because Andy Serkis played Martin Hannett in 24 Hour Party People so there's still a connection. So there.
Alan F has some great Haçienda shit right here, by the way.
In case you missed the memo, my Mediafire account got wiped clean the other day, without warning or explanation. Very odd. Very annoying. And apparently it's happened to others as well.
No better way to demonstrate my current state of mind than with a depressing photograph and a band called "Negativland".
I'm working on reuploading shit at the moment, but there's no way I could or would upload everything again, so just for future reference: never expect a download link posted prior to this date to actually work. They might, but they could just as well not.
Wanted to download something but you missed it? Well that's just tough shit, ain't it? I guess Mediafire fucked you right in the ass on that one. Or you could just check back at a later date and try it again. Maybe I've uploaded it by then. I sure as hell ain't gonna do it all at once.
Let's just hope everything works from now on. If not, how am I supposed to share the nutbustungly incredible Trippin' Balls Vol. 23 with you wonderful people tomorrow? You have my permission to shudder at the thought.
