Sunday 01.16.11: PART TIME PUNKS – FACTORY RECORDS NITE with Guest DJ Paul Ryder from Happy Mondays @ echo

FACTORY RECORDS NITE

with Guest DJ Paul Ryder from Happy Mondays
Paul Ryder, the man who helped create the generation-defining musical genre known as “Madchester” by co-founding, naming, playing bass in, and co-writing four top ten albums and seven hit singles for the legendary band Happy Mondays, follows his own groove out of the Mondays’ hazy delirium in his forthcoming solo album Radiator, scheduled for release in Autumn 2009. Demonstrating Ryder’s essential role and virtuosity in the genre, Radiator struts a sound as relevant and energizing today as ever—a testament in itself to his continuing musical legacy. By the time Manchester pop impresario Tony Wilson discovered Happy Mondays at his historic Hacienda nightclub in the mid-1980s, his Factory Records label was already responsible for such post-punk groups as A Certain Ratio, The Durutti Column, and the ubiquitously iconic bands Joy Division and New Order.
