The book covers the Hacienda nightclub, Madchester, the birth of rave culture, going from being a Joy Division fan to a collaborator with New Order, and more. The book spans British pop culture from the 1970s to the 1990s.
No guarantees from this OP, but the book will likely discuss the time Sonic Youth slept on his floor.
