Acid House: The True Story

by

Acid House: The True Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The author examines the legacy and lasting impact of acid house, and how the second summer of love is viewed 25 years on.  How has acid house been assimilated into mainstrem culture?  How did the change in drugs, away from ecstacy towards other drugs, affect the music and the party scene?

Bainbridge has interviewed most of the protagonists who led the revolution, from the DJs and musicians to the promoters, gangsters and ravers, and built up a relationship of trust and mutual respect.  This is the true story of acid house, from the DJ box to the dancefloor.

Why has the free party scene never really been replicated, despite new technology's greater capacity to organize events and disseminate information?  Who were the real winners and casualties in the story?  Do the world's current biggest DJs - Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta - have any connection to the original scene?  Where next for house and dance music in general?
