  Party 'Til You Puke!
  Your dream was her reality
  Inebriation and embarrassing behaviour are about to be celebrated with the release of Carol Morley’s acclaimed short documentary The Alcohol Years. A period that never ended for most of us, for Carol it was five years of absolute hell, getting completely bladdered every night and putting it about around the (in)famous Hacienda night-club, all at the expense of those legendary Manc. maniacs, New Order. 20 years on, Carol returns to Manchester to search for her lost self, revealing a poignant portrait of the city, its pop culture, the people who lived there and a young woman who found herself at the centre of a defining moment in Manchester’s cultural history.

The Alcohol Years features contributions from, amongst others, Buzzcock Pete Shelley and sleazy record producer Tony Wilson and features music from the likes of New Order and The Duritti Column; this new DVD release will also include two of the director’s early films, Everyday Something and Stalin My Neighbour. If you’re one of those who drinks three litres of White Lightning, fights with yourself in the bus station and then goes to the toilet in your trousers - and who isn't? - The Alcohol Years is released by new label Film First on 4th April.
