SINOPSIS:


The True Acid House Experience


What went on behind the Acid House dream? The raves and huge dance parties of the late-1980s changed the face of popular culture, as hundreds of thousands of youngsters enjoyed the illicit thrills of ecstacy and vast, illegal "all-nighters". Yet beneath the bright surface was a world of drug deals, violence, exploitation, protection rackets and armed robbery.

In this book, Wayne Anthony tells the story of his two years as an illegal dance party organizer and promoter. In those two years he was beaten up, menaced by criminals and blackmailers, confronted with sawn-off shotguns, kidnapped and threatened with murder.

A superbly honest, gritty, real-life account of the ups & downs of the late 80s illegal rave scene in the UK.

SOME REVIEWS:

It's gonzoid journalism of the best get-stuck-in-kind, with more parties, drugs, blags and scrapes with the law than a lifetime of tabloids could produce. And it still tells us everything the academics come out with....
NME (Apr.98)

This is a book about parties, some of the biggest and most successful ever thrown in Britain ..... In this context house parties are not the sort of events that feature in Tatler, illustrated by photographs of the scions of aristocratic families toasting each other with champagne
DAILY TELEGRAPH (Jan.98)

Wayne was at the forefront of a revolution for Britain's youth as they rejected boozy fights on a Friday night for an unprecedented unity on the dance floor. And the catalyst was Es and binding beats .
EAST LONDON ADVERTISER (Febr.98)

Some bloke takes an E in 1988 and thinks he's Nick bloody Hornby .
LOADED (Mar.98)

Written in "cheerfully conversational" style, it probably won't win any Booker Prizes but, as a grittily authentic tale of the early rave scene's, has few equals.
VENUE (Jan.98)
