Description

Sonic Youth Slept On My Floor; Music, Manchester & More
Dave Haslam book event and DJ set

In his new book, Dave Haslam documents encounters with inspiring characters including Tony Wilson, Nile Rodgers, Terry Hall, Neneh Cherry, Tracey Thorn, John Peel, Mark E Smith, Ian Brown, and John Lydon. Morrissey comes to tea; he meets writers including Raymond Carver and Jonathan Franzen; he discusses masturbation with Viv Albertine; he has a gun pulled on him at the Hacienda, a drug dealer threatens to slit his throat; and Sonic Youth sleep on his floor.

He was a teenage John Peel listener and Joy Division fan in the late 1970s. In 2017, four decades later, he works with New Order on a series of five live shows in Manchester. Haslam tells the story of those decades, including the impact of life-shaking events (from the nightmare of the Yorkshire Ripper to the shock of the Manchester Arena terror attack).
The book is a masterful insider account of the Hacienda, the rise of Madchester and the birth of the rave era, a memoir of his life and work in some of the most interesting corners of contemporary culture. And so much more...
A special Leeds event to mark the publication of Hacienda resident DJ Dave Haslam’s new book; entitled 'Sonic Youth Slept on My Floor; Music, Manchester & More', includes Miz DeShannon interviewing, a book sale and signing, and Dave Haslam DJ set.
