The Floating Peak
On “24 Hour Party People” Steve Coogan/Tony Wilson best describes this state: “It was like being on a fantastic fairground ride, centrifugal forces throwing us wider and wider. But it’s all right, because there’s this brilliant machine at the center that’s going to bring us back down to earth. That was Manchester. That is the Hacienda. Now imagine the machine breaks. For a while, it’s even better, because you’re really flying. But then, you fall, because nobody beats gravity.”
Apart from not being Manchester nor the Hacienda for me, the flying and fall parts were really accurate. And I would do it again and again and again.
