On Saturday I was asked to play by DMJ Vintage store at an exhibition they were holding. Their wonderful shop was temporarily turned into a gallery showcasing the works of Anthony Mulryan who over the years has captured some of musics most famous faces.
This was a cosy occasion as the shop was packed out. Sometimes these sort of sets are the hardest to pull off as more than ever you feel a responsibility to the event and to provide a fitting soundtrack for the night.
Even though we were 20 miles south of Shudehill this felt like an all Manchester affair. The owner of the shop had some of the most impressive pieces of Haçienda memorabilia I have ever seen, from bollards to the door mat that over time every person who had entered the club had stepped on. The shop is worth a visit for this alone.
