Comprising Dean Cavanagh, Enzo Annechianni and Martin Diver, and based in Bradford, Yorkshire, England, Glamorous Hooligan took their name from the members’ past experiences ‘running with a local football firm’. Their breakthrough release came with 1994’s Wasted Youth Club Classics, a collision of breakbeats with disparate samples and trip-hop inspired ‘otherness’. Part of the record’s ethos was a rebuttal of the way the modern club scene had evolved, and the expensive ticket prices charged by name DJs. The bleak but realistic mood of the album was further explored with the release of the attendant 10-inch single, ‘Stone Island Estate’. Cavanagh also works as an underground music journalist, scriptwriter and a club promoter.
