I can't tell you how excited I am to be hosting Robot Rock this Friday, with Guest DJ, Paul Ryder of Happy Mondays, the infamous 90's British band that grew out of the same Manchester scene as New Order. If, for some reason, you have no idea who the Happy Mondays are, please go out and rent 24 Hour Party People, which documents the Manchester music scene through the eyes of Factory Records owner, Tony Wilson. My favorite music film of all time, the movie not only documents the absurd drug-addled exploits of the Happy Mondays, but also focuses on the birth of Joy Division and New Order, as well as many other seminal bands of that era.
Please stop by to see a living legend, and make sure to say Six Six Sick at the door for free entry!
