Maconie's TV Towns

Just watching this on ITV3 (is it a repeat?) - tonight it's Manchester, and there was a section on The Ritz, where of course The Smiths played their first gig, with Blue Rondo A La Turk. What I didn't appreciate is that the nightclub scenes in A Taste Of Honey were shot there (was the venue choice by accident or design?), and there was a nice section where Maconie chatted about the Delaney references in The Smiths' early works. Sorry if this has been posted before.

Thanks, it's repeat you're watching.
Brel/Sheridan/Sunbags or someone else posted a thread last year.

Didn't you help with the book 'Panic On The Streets'?
On the section on The Ritz, it is mentioned about 'A Taste Of Honey' having a scene filmed there:rolleyes::D
