Jane Bussmann gets a load of people (some famous, some not) to tell their stories about time spent living the life of the raver. Possibly incomprehensible to anyone who was not There themselves, to anyone who was this is the best book ever. It is funny but also makes me wonder why I am wasting my time here writing this when I could be off E-ing my nuts off to electronic dance music, as the book gives the impression that this would be a fun thing to do.
Currently rereading this amazing book. Makes me nostalgic for an era I never actually experienced. Really packed with detail. Clearly a labor of love. Quite funny too. If I can be arsed to do it I'll paste in some excerpts later
