Original poster for The Gay Traitor, the cocktail bar located in the basement of the legendary Hacienda club in Manchester, England, this being the copy that hung in the club. Founded by Factory Records boss Tony Wilson and the band New Order in 1982, the Hacienda became world famous during the Madchester era of late 80s and early 90s, when it served as an incubator for not only for acid house and rave culture, but the next generation of British pop and rock acts.The Gay Traitor was named after Anthony Blunt, a British art historian who had been a spy for the Soviet Union. The two first floor bars, mentioned at the bottom of the poster, were named after Blunt's fellow spies, Kim Philby and Guy Burgess, whose cover name was Hicks. The poster, with its yellow and black stripes, reflects the overall design aesthetic of Factory Records and The Hacienda, one that would equal in its influence the music produced there. Though the poster is uncredited in Matthew Robertson's comprehensive guide to Factory Records' graphics, according to the label's then-head designer Peter Saville, credit for the poster should be given to label head Tony Wilson.8.25 x 23.5 inches. Near Fine, with pinholes at the top and bottom and some light creasing, else bright and unfaded. Archivally encapsulated in mylar, matted, and framed.Robertson, 52-7.
