November 1991, Mike Pickering live at the Haçienda
Liveset from mike Pickering, recorded in 1991 at the Haçienda in Manchester.
The club had a turbulent history. It has been funded with the revenue from the records of New Order, but there were constant financial problems, especially because often to much money was spent on design. Also the production of membership cards (designed by Peter Saville) was too expensive.
Despite these problems, the Haçienda became a legendary club, which was often groundbreaking and trendsetting. For example, it was the first club outside the United States which played house music in 1986. and in 1988 the club became trendsetter in the development of acid house. In this short period, the nightclub was hugely popular and turned a profit.
