The bouncers at The White Hotel are brilliant in every way. If you can spare a few quid to show some support after this awful incident then we know it'd be much appreciated.
In response to all the positive messages and requests to help that we have received only since yesterday, we have set-up an online donation page to raise funds ...for the short-term recovery of our much-loved door team.
In case you'd prefer to donate in person or cash, we will be providing an anonymous donation box at the venue during opening hours.
Any donation is welcome from a rusty, fluff-ridden 2p circle to Rooney's weekly wage.
‘He is associated with The White Hotel. Just in case you haven’t heard of it, it’s not a hotel. It’s not a club either, despite being voted the 66th best in the world. In Austin’s words “it’s an institution, in that it should be sponsored by the NHS.” He doesn’t really have a job there, he says. Rather he’s involved like you would be in a serious crime. Welcome to the bizarre world of Austin Collings.’
An homage to lower league football, John Berryman and various other dead white poets from Matthew Boswell of Emperor Zero.
'Austin Collings is an author who narrates the stifling ambivalence of Northern life; Atrocity Boy documents debauchery usually relating to the Mancunian label Sways. The following encounter was first published in a chapbook sold at The White Hotel in Salford – here it appears in digital form for the first time.'
'The world revolved around our demented picnic bench.'
Atrocity Boy gets all nostalgic for Europe. A feeling we'd all better start getting used to.
Tonight at the White Hotel ...
Where will it all end?

6am - ?
We're all one beat away from becoming elevator music. Human hums. But THE WHITE HOTEL refuses to thump this dull drum because we are larger than death and we love the sound of self-destruction. Fred West or George Best? Marlon Brando or Jill Dando? Only THE WHITE HOTEL know the answer. Listen in like Richard Nixon.
