Adventures In Wonderland
But this isn’t just a book about the music. It’s about being up for it. Out of it. And right in the middle of it.
It’s about the Paradise Garage in New York, about dancing under the stars in Ibiza or Goa, about the house we built in the UK at Future, Shoom, Spectrum. Clink Street and the Haçienda. It’s about Ecstasy and community and a scene that grew with breath-taking speed because we needed to feel that the world was changing.
It’s about dodging the police to get the party started, and the joy of dancing all night in the British countryside, with thousands of others on the same high. About Madchester, Blackburn, and a new understanding between rock and dance music. And about what came after, from drum’n’bass to the rise of superclubs such as Ministry of Sound, Renaissance and Cream.
But most of all, it’s about having the time of your life. And who wouldn’t want that?
