Rough Trade Compilations of The Year: #14

4CD book set celebrating the roots of The Haçienda, coinciding with its 40th anniversary. Combining key sides spun by DJs with period tracks from acts who played the venue in 82. The Haçienda’s music policy, while erring towards independent music of all sorts, was eclectic – and that’s reflected across the 60-odd tracks included.

From the opening New York underground sound of Suicide to chart-toppers from Dexy’s, via soul, post-punk, reggae, goth, disco and glam rock among many other styles, Haçienda 1982 accurately reflects the music heard during that seminal first (half) year.

On 21 May 1982, a nightclub opened which would become iconic worldwide, forever associated with the music and popular culture of Manchester, and its most famous homegrown label, Factory Records (indeed, it was given its own catalogue number, FAC 51). A converted yacht builder’s shop, the venue looked as striking and dramatic in its design as the output of Factory. From the start, it hosted a string of local as well as UK and international artists every week, interspersed by the turntable talents of DJs such as Hewan Clarke and Jon Savage. In due course, The Haçienda would embody Manchester’s spirit of independence playing a key part in the explosion of rave culture, ‘Baggy’ and eventually Britpop.

Each disc is sequenced roughly in the order in which DJs would have played the songs, starting with the more downbeat or adventurous material and eventually building to classic dancefloor fillers. Elsewhere, a smattering of Manchester/Factory acts make their presence felt while underground club anthems abound, from The Valentine Brothers’ original version of ‘Money’s Too Tight (To Mention)’ (as covered by the city’s own Simply Red) to Defunkt’s ‘The Razor’s Edge’ and ‘The Gospel Comes To New Guinea’ by 23 Skidoo. Equally, many mainstream pop stars played the club that year, from Soft Cell, Blancmange and Tears For Fears to the year’s biggest breakthrough, Culture Club.

Haçienda 1982 is endorsed by New Order’s Peter Hook (who owns the rights to the club’s brand), who has written a foreword. In addition, local writer Mick Middles has penned an essay interviewing those who were involved, together with mini-biographies of all the acts featured on the compilation. The anniversary is also being acknowledged with a TV documentary. In short, Haçienda 1982 is the ultimate tribute to a landmark venue in the history of club culture.
