DJ Greg Wilson has photos of the Haçienda DJ
(no, not the one
you're thinking of).
DJ Hewan Clarke who played every night for the first four years talks about what it was like
in the early days of the Haçienda:
What I used to do when I was playing the records… I always had to go out, run onto the stage, stand in the middle of the stage and listen to how it sounded in the club, went back in and readjust it on the mixer and I was constantly doing that because there was no feedback from what was going on outside, you just had to look through that gap.
was a Manchester nightclub
essentially financed by Factory Records band New Order. Before it birthed the Madchester
scene, the dj played in one of the worst dj setups ever conceived.
