The last 26 years at Night & Day read like a who’s who of Manchester’s continuing creative legacy… Guy Garvey practically used it as an office, Johnny Marr and The Courteeners rehearsed there, Badly Drawn Boy wrote songs there and Mark E Smith was known to behave very strangely indeed there. The walls have withstood the barrage from over 30,000 bands from all over the world. Some of the many stand outs have to be a naked Damo Suzuki, The Dirtbombs having to stop and towel down after one song, Meg White vs The Bar Staff, Keanu Reaves popping in to watch some bands, buy a t-shirt and get mobbed, and the venue getting name-checked on Lost by Dominic Monaghan.
