Legendary Hacienda DJ Dave Haslam has written a memoir. Haslam details his memories of Manchester's magical musical scene in the 80s and early 90s, with stories about Factory/Hacienda luminaries and many of the bands who played at the club, including The Stone Roses, New Order, The Smiths, Happy Mondays, Spiritualized, Sonic Youth, and more. Haslam told Manchester Evening News that while he was DJing at the club he kept a diary, and the diary turned out to be a tremendous help in allowing him to recall details from a variety of events from back in the day.

Haslam also revealed that he's pulling no punches and will be offering a truthful view of how things really were:

"I have reached an age where I have no reason not to talk honestly about things. When you are young you feel you have to be careful about your image."

The memoir, Sonic Youth Slept On My Floor; Music, Manchester and More is set for release on May 24th. Read more about the memoir here and catch up with Dave Haslam here.
