Old School of Rock

Even retro is retro nowadays, so the fact that Anderson's Fifth Estate continues to exist despite everything from trout and cougar conventions to lost dale-boys wearing guyliner is testament to the nightclub's longevity. Panic! with DJ Manchester proves the point, as you’ll see when you’re bumping to ´60s mod stirred and shaken with a Britpop twist and New Wave chaser. But if Manchester copped the name of his club night from the Smiths song -- and we say he did -- does that qualify Morrissey and Marr for golden-oldie geezerdom? Holy shit, we need a highball and a hip replacement.
