Sweet idea. Would be even sweeter if the invented a ‘create your own pot of gold tool’ tho.
A book with photos by Gavin and Neville Watson of the early days of acid house in London an Manchester where the subculture found its origin:
“Raving 89 takes you through a year of suburban raves, with 200 fantastic images collected together as if a single dramatic night grimy warehouses, phones the size of bricks, smiles, hugs, lasers and dungarees, lives changed, faces lost in music, casualties, friends and general mayhem; with rogues and wronguns lurking in the corners, and more than a few crimes against fashion.”

The bible of the grafitti movement, Subway Art, is celebrating his 25th anniversary this year. Got this book from Sinterklaas in 1985, when I was 12 years old. Actually Sinterklaas was not planning to give it to me anymore, because just before present day, me and my friends got busted by the police for doing the first ever piece in our hometown. But after some crocodile tears, because i desperately wanted that book, the guy with the long white beard gave it to me after all. I still thank him for that because that book partly made me what I am today. So cheers Martha and Henry, I just ordered the 25th anniversary edition!
