With special thanks to everyone who's helped us establish the good ship Motel - all the bands and artists we've put on since 2007, Manc writers, promoters and enthusiasts such as High Voltage, Popcult, Manchester Music and Same Teens included, everyone who we harangued into contributing to our annual print Review Of The Years, and anyone who gives a shit about music and art that has something to say.

Oh, and I suppose we should thank the gnome, really. The misanthropic little git.
