C86 SHOW INTERVIEW WITH MARK HOYLE
Mark Hoyle has been talking to David Eastaugh from Future Radio’s C86 Show … have a listen here
DUB SEX - THE HACIENDA, MANCHESTER - 2nd APRIL 1990
This is something pretty special. Restored video and sound-desk footage of our 1990 gig at The Hacienda in Manchester - it was discovered in a cache of tapes left to me after the sad passing of Malcolm Whitehead, from Factory Record’s film arm IKON.
This 1990 Hacienda show saw a very different Dub Sex - we played new songs like 'I Want', 'The Rescuers', 'Untouchable', 'Slipstream', 'North by North East' and 'Until Now' that would have made up the core of the next album. The plan was for Martin Hannett to produce it at The Slaughterhouse (Driffield) and Strawberry (Stockport) - we actually recorded 'Time of Life', 'Kumina' and 'Over and Over' with Martin but then decided against using him. The tracks lay unheard until Tim Burgess released 'Time of Life'/'Over and Over' as a 7" single on his O Genesis label in 2014.
This partial footage, filmed by Malcolm and his IKON team features Cathy Brooks on bass, Roger Cadman on drums and Chris Mannion (Cookson at the time of filming) on guitar. I was back doing guitar and vocals by this point. Chris went on to play guitar for Jah Wobble and to collaborate with such worthies as Bill Laswell and The Chinese Dub Orchestra. He also later joined Cathy and me in Ninebar playing to thousands on the first Finley Quaye tour.
Set-list:- Dub Sex - The Hacienda, Manchester - 2nd April 1990
1. Until Now
2. Time Of Life
3. I Want
4. The Rescuers

For the eagle-eyed the video shows the date as 3rd April 1990, but the gig was actually on 2nd April 1990.
