Contents include Savage's interviews with Tony Wilson, Ben Kelly, Howard Jones, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris, Rob Gretton, Mike Pickering, Hewan Clarke, Claude Bessy, Tim Chambers, Penny Henry, Salts, Ellie Gray, Leroy Richardson, Paul Cons, Dave Haslam, Paul Mason, Graeme Park, Dave Rofe, John McCready, Angela Matthews, Tom Wainwright, and texts by Mandi James, Andy Spinoza, and Steve Redhead and Hillegonda Rietveld + a chronological listing of every gig and event from the club's opening in May 1982 through to May 1992 + full-page colour reproductions of Haçienda posters.

Together with: three original Haçienda Club members' newsletters, #4-6 (August-December, 1982). Original xeroxes, side-stapled, each 8pp., including cover. Lists upcoming gigs and events (including William Burroughs), recommended listening, and contributions from Jon Savage. Fine.
