PETER HOOK HACIENDA EXHIBITION
 

Star date: 21st May 2011 

THEN HACIENDA NOW
Richard Goodall Gallery
Until May 28th free

A pair of Hacienda doors for ten grand anyone? Or a genuine Hacienda guitar for four and a half grand? Never mind. Just seeing everything Hooky and Hacienda on display is well worth a visit to the posh side of Manc-land.

A pair of Hacienda doors might well cost ten grand but you can't get away from the spirit that fired and inspired the Hac in the first place.

At the opening of the Then Hacienda Now exhibition last night, a classical music ensemble provided `interpretations' of New Order and Joy Division hits - but a few feet away Peter Hook had written in the visitors book `Salford Rules!'

A little later on, poet Mike Garry was doing his ace street hagiography to `Saint Anthony' when a bloke called Kenny stood at the window outside the posh Richard Goodall Gallery chucking notes about, mocking the whole event.

No matter how it's tarted up, framed and revered, the Hac and all it stands for will always have sweat stains on its t-shirt and a gob that's too big. Even its memory can still pull a crowd. While Hooky himself and Graeme Park DJ'd the toons, those in the packed gallery were still pointing to posters and flyers going on about their caked out memories of muddy fields, Salford booths and skipping queues. The flyers, here in glass cases, are stuffed in attics, bottom drawers and shoe boxes of those who were there.

For those who weren't, this exhibition is an opportunity to buy a piece of cool. There's loads of Hooky's original Hac, New Order and Joy Division posters up for sale, plus all the Hac merchandising stuff that came after – a Hac guitar for £4,500, a signed framed Ben Kelly digital print of `Fac 51 Hacienda West' for £675 (£480 unframed), plus those original Hac `51' carved doors for £10,000. 

Hac watches, Hac trainers, Hac t-shirts… the legend lives on, the price tag goes up…

But this week long exhibition is free. Well worth a trip. As Northside once wheezed.

THEN HACIENDA NOW
Richard Goodall Gallery, High Street, Manchester
Until May 28th

DONALD TRUMP... 'THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS LEADER SINCE THE 1930s' 

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK. Groups from every section of society that Trump has dissed were represented on stage – from Mexican dancers to an ex-US soldier, to trade unions, peace, climate change, refugee, LGBT and women's rights campaigners, plus spokespeople for youth and children. 

To kick off the evening, Manchester councillor, Pat Karney, called Trump "The most dangerous leader since the 1930s...we have to stop the ideas of Trump going across the world..."

TRUMP GO HOME BUS HITS SALFORD

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".

Star date: 12th July 2018

SLOW WALKING, LOCK ONS AND ALL DIRECT ACTION OUTLAWED BY JUDGE

Many of the actions used by protesters at the Barton Moss anti-fracking demonstrations in Salford were outlawed by a judge at Manchester Civil Justice Centre yesterday, including slow walking, lock-ons and any obstruction of the highway.

The judgement, in relation to Cuadrilla's fracking site on Preston New Road, Lancashire, has implications for all anti-fracking protests... "This is an incredibly sad day for the right to protest peacefully" said Jonathan Bartle, co-leader of the Green Party.
