About the Christams Party Graeme says “The annual Haçienda Christmas Party at Sankeys is definitely one of the highlights of the year and this time I’m playing all night long. I’m extremely excited because with a whole seven hours to fill I’ll be able to span the whole period of my Haçienda residency and play a real variety of genres too. As well as all the usual big, timeless classics expect a few forgotten gems and some surprises too.

There’s a wealth of great music out there and I plan to dig deep and entertain while taking everyone on a journey that covers a lot more than 30 years of The Haçienda. I can think of no better way to end a magnificent year of Haçienda 30 celebrations.”

In addition to these events, further events are proposed in Japan, Sweden and Thailand.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
