The week before the birthday party and the Haçienda would be buzzing, who was going? where were tickets going spare, who was playing? along with those acting too cool to go but you knew they would be there... wtf!! too cool, what was that attitude about? Life's way too short for that shit! It was about the party not the attitude..... Where was I? This is the first tape of a double pack from the night. Pure uplifting vocal house and garage from the day - the perfect build up to the birthday celebrations to put us in the mood.
Parky used to label his sets as Tape X, Tape Y etc, and fortunately both will be on here in celebration of the Haçienda.. enjoy

Do you remember the screens at the side of the dance floor, avant-garde images, pop bites and porn?... I guess they had to make indie nights interesting... soon went when the house nights kicked in!! Sneakily though, I did enjoy watching them from the balcony with a can of red stripe!!
