Madchester: Tales of Rock n Roll Excess

Next tour: For now this tour has been subsumed into the Manchester Music: The Hacienda Years tour. Please see relevant pages.


Come drink in a cocktail of excess and revelry drunk by those overdosing on their own egos and out to lunch in their own lifetimes on this irreverent, Rabelasian, rabble-rousing tour.

Here are tales of million pound recording budgets blown up and out of the nose, and of once-revered men brought down by their libidos.

Yes, it’s the seamy, seedy, sleazy, sexy, sordid side of the music business with a cast list that includes Mark E. Smith, Barney, the Happy Mondays, those lovely Gallagher boys and the Unmentionable One.

Ed Glinert takes a walk on the wild side.
