Sunday morning papers/3. (Luke Bainbridge sulla serata inaugurale di “The Trip” all’Astoria, maggio 1988). The Haçienda’s Mike Pickering, booed off at the same venue six months earlier for playing acid house, couldn’t believe the transformation when he played the Trip’s opening night. “This time the crowd were all in bandanas and smiley T-shirts, trance dancing.
