About this Item

"GENERATION ECTASY strives to combine the thoughtless immediacy of my experiences in the thick of the scene with the 'thinking around the subject' that ensued after the heat of the moment. As a history, it's an attempt to chronicle how this extraordinary culture coalesced into being, and to track how those strands have subsequently unraveled to form the current post-rave diaspora. But pulsing inside the text, its raison d'etre, is theincansescent memory of amnesiac moments, dance floor frenzies that propelled me outside time and history. Bliss on." This book has 454 pages and is illustrated. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoeveer. Bookseller Inventory # 062527
