When the UK acid house juggernaut arrived in ‘88, I was tucked away in a village primary. This didn’t stop me noticing the change in tide and soon enough I was organising a school ‘rave’ for Children in Need and running ‘Buzz FM’, a radio station broadcast from a crap sounding amp during reading class. Interviews with dinner ladies provided a narrative for Bomb the Bass, Coldcut and 808 State much to the bemusement of my teachers! I guess you could say the writing was on the wall...

It’s my hope that somebody, somewhere will hear some of these for the first time and find themselves moved in similar ways.
