New Order's Peter Hook selects The Hacienda Classics


Arguably one of the reasons we loose so much of our weekends to the evening hours, The Hacienda will launch an album aiming to catch those magic moments.

Originally conceived, founded and financed in 1980 by Factory Records and New Order through a deal steered by Rob Gretton, the manager of the by then disbanded Joy Division, The Haçienda first opened its doors on May 21st 1982 sporting a Factory Records catalogue number of Fac 51, a pioneering interior designed by architect Ben Kelly and featured Bernard Manning as the opening night act. From that day forth until 1997 The Hacienda created an environment for electronic music expression that helped shaped UK club culture.

‘The Hacienda Classics’ is delivered by Peter Hook, bassist from New Order, who shared a founding hand in The Haçienda and remembers the good old days:
“The Haçienda was built on blood, sweat and tears… I think it’s safe to say we made every mistake in the book, that said it was the most magical time and I wouldn’t change any of it. I have so many special memories from those days, the way the DJ’s would select the tunes especially for the club, I remember Sasha’s first set, the atmosphere was electric and he played the best set of his life, the music was perfect as was the crowd, when we left you just knew you’d been a spectator of something very special indeed’
To mirror The Haçienda’s genre bending music policy as well as chart a selection of the tracks that created The Haçienda and became anthems for the foundations of UK, even global clubbing as we know it, ‘Hooky’ has compiled three CD’s of definitive Haçienda classics bringing together elements of rare groove, soul hip hop, hip house, house and indie-dance painting a true picture of the highest moments of The Haçienda. Highlights and Hacienda moments from the album include New Order ‘Confusion’, Happy Mondays ‘Step On’, Orbital ‘Belfast’, Candi Staton ‘You Got The Love’, Doug Lazy ‘Let It Roll’, Inner City ‘Good Life’, Guy Called Gerald ‘Voodoo Ray’ and more:
