"...Here comes the noise.
It creeps up on us, quietly at first, attracting people out of the shadows, inviting us to make this derelict space a dancefloor. The volume reaches a gratifyingly loud level and I realize that this really is going to happen, this is really going to go off.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
"A vivid account of the squat party experience; a pumped-up Fear and Loathing transplanted to Bristol, England… we are taken on an odyssey, 'aving it to pounding techno in a dirty warehouse. Read this book - the story of the real 90s ecstasy revolution." Chris Liberator, Stay Up Forever Records
"Love it! It put me right back to the days when I was doing exactly the same thing in London 1995. I loved the bit were it all gets a bit much, we have all been there at some point. A really fun read , with some great visual descriptions of the weirdest moments…" Henry Cullen aka D.A.V.E. the Drummer (Hydraulix/ Mutate to Survive/ Pounding Grooves)
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Bert Random crawled into a speaker in 1990 when he was 16 years old and emerged over a decade later with nothing but ringing eardrums, dusty trainers, and a chaotic handful of scribbled notes. It has taken him until now to decipher his handwriting and begin piecing it all together. Despite repeated attempts to escape from Bristol he is currently living there again, though this time he is enjoying seeing it through the fresh eyes of his wife and young son. When not daydreaming about having his head in a bassbin he works part-time for a small but useful charity.
