Good techno backgrounder and reference guide
on 10 July 1999
I ordered this book the moment I got a notification from the Betalounge.com. Techno Rebels gives a historical overview of the origins of techno including detailed descriptions of the major players. Interesting details like pictures of "Techno Boulevard", Inner City's Saunderson (someone's music I always have admired) organizational talent to bring the right people (writers/singers) together to bring techno to the masses (allways thought Kevin did all the writing by himself). Even if you're not much of a reader, the last part of the books gives a reference of influential techno records together with availability info. As these records get re-released it will be fun to dig these songs up again. It's nice to see that someone took up the job to write this book and succeeded very well.
