Event description

Description

Hacienda DJ Dave Haslam will be at the Record Café, reading from his autobiography, ‘Sonic Youth Slept On My Floor’, talking about his life and career and signing copies of the paperback edition, which hits the streets 21stMarch 2019.

‘Sonic Youth Slept On My Floor’ was proclaimed Book of the Year by DJ Gilles Peterson; described as “Witty, sometimes dark, revealing, insightful” by journalist Everett True; and as “utterly endearing” in the Sunday Times.

It’s a personal story, but it’s also part of a collective history. He encounters inspiring characters including Tony Wilson, Nile Rodgers, Neneh Cherry, Tracey Thorn, Mark E Smith, Ian Brown, and John Lydon. John Peel takes him to see Public Enemy; Sonic Youth sleep on his floor; Morrissey comes to tea. He has a gun pulled on him at the Hacienda, a drug dealer threatens to slit his throat; and, in an unexpected twist, he sells his records and moves to Paris where a crew of lesbians save his life.
