Had hit and miss nights at all venues the WHP has been held at. Store street is the best venue for the sound and space so I am very much looking forward to going to the Chemical Brothers (they smashed it last time and I expect nothing less this time) and Hawtin's Enter night.
The last venue was a bit of a faff to get around but I must say at the front in that main room was pretty amazing.
Looking to relocate to that area and we're trying to find a decent town/village......been looking at Whaley Bridge, New Mills, Furness Vale. The missus likes Hayfield but it looks a bit posh and boring, plus there's no train line that I'd need to get into Manchestohhh.
trouble is every time we've drove round there it's been raining and so everywhere looks a bit miserable with the grey stone buildings and what have yer.
Any recommendations welcome
Just moved to Glossop from Chorlton great location nice and civalised, has a nice high street with decent pubs etc. Regular train to Manchester (25 minutes) Not great for after the pubs shut, one night club which is something you went to when 17) however Manchester isn't far if you want after hours fun. On the door step of the peak district if you enjoy out door fun. All in all great place to settle once past 30 and still like to dabble a bit or too.
1. Your fans aren't that loyal. They all fucking hate you but they are putting on an admirable show of pretending to back you because Fergie asked them to. 2. A 'difficult' season? Well, difficult in the sense that you don't know how to devise a training programme for an ageing striker with a history of injuries and it's been difficult to turn him into Mick Harford. Also difficult to make a 45 year old run up and down the left wing like someone much younger. Also difficult to turn Kagawa into a winger, and Valencia into a right back, and Cleverly into a footballer, you stupid fucking cunt. 3. I also have little doubt that there will be winning sides on show at Old Trafford again. But not under you, you stupid fucking bug-eyed cunt.
In the last year or so I've Seen Sasha at Zoo project festival which was brilliant, the loft Studios which was brilliant, MOS which was decent, Ushuaua which was decent and whp project which was brilliant. Not a bad return really.
... or the fact that from late '92ish, for the next seven or eight years - if you liked the developing progressive house sound - then there simply wasn't a DJ that got close to him.
Loads of them played the same records - loads of them tried the same mixes - none of them could look out from the booth on an atmosphere like Sasha routinely created though.
It's easy to look back with cynicism and 'humour' but there is a reason these threads still surface whilst they don't for umpteen other of his contemporaries.
Superb post Smash, Sasha is no longer the force he once was. He is a legend for the right reasons. He can still pull in the crowds and when he fancies it he can still do it (Nowhere near like he used too obviously) His set at the WHP on Saturday proves he can still compete. Great set with a lot of energy.
I went last year, first night music wise it was shite, second night was better, Sasha and Gerber and Scuba. The festival itself setup wise was average not much else to do other than the arenas (Totally forgot about the actual zoo!). Lots of southern scum bags possibly from Essex. "you fucking mug/cunt/mugging me off, was all I heard. I was drugged up the whole time though and it was the first time me and my then new girl friend got wasted and raved so all in all I've got decent memories of it. Probably wouldn't go again mind.
