Complete with Martin Hannett’s old Tannoy Gold soundsystem.
Following on from its summer terrace residency at Oval Space, Behind This Wall has opened a bar in Hackney with a Joy Division-approved sound-system.
The spot, which was previously a luminous pink Turkish Social club, took six months to design and build. The team have installed Martin Hannett’s glorious 1970s Tannoy Gold sound-system, a rotary mixer and a Technics turntable. Sometimes one is all you need.
