Product description

Review

"Worthy. As a straightforward timeline account of rave culture-the DJs, the drugs, the choons, the clubs, the clobber-"Generation Ecstasy succeeds. Tracing the music. Reynolds shows that he certainly knows his stuff.."
-"Now, Toronto
"For anyone who has been to a rave or bought a techno CD, this book is an excellent complement. Reynolds does a great job throughout, even making this book readable for those who know littel or nothing about techno and rave culture."
-"Dead Trees Review
"Invaluable."
-"Toronto Star
"The single best book about rave culture."
-"The Roverfront Times
"A classic chronicle of the Nineties rave movement."
-James Hunter, "Rolling Stone
