Members Only HARDBACK BOOK (V.Ltd. 1st Edn. Individually numbered)

    Deluxe hardback book - 432 pages! … every first edition book is individually numbered as a throwback to many of the original membership cards.

    Members Only: The Iconic Membership Cards and Passes of the Acid House and Rave Generations features over 500 items of memorabilia from the late 80s and 90s and covers all the legendary and pioneering events of the eras, including Amnesia House, Biology, Dreamscape, Eclipse, Energy, Fantazia, Genesis, FAC51 Hacienda, Jungle Fever, Labrynth, Ministry of Sound, Rage, Raindance, Shoom, Spectrum, Sterns, Club UK and World Dance.

    Foreward by Justin Berkmann (Ministry of Sound), intro by Sarah HB, Q&A with Jenni Rampling (Shoom) and epilogue by Anton Le-Pirate (Energy/World Dance/Tribal Dance/Freedom To Party), the book encompasses one of the most important eras for dance music ever.

    The book, while featuring all of the iconic events, clubs and parties, legal and illegal, also includes quotes from the pioneering event founders, DJs, MCs, PAs, designers, ravers and even with the person who “invented” glow sticks giving us the insight on when, where and how they came about.

    Finally, the book throws in some bonus content by way of many business cards and pin badges from back in the day.

    Quotes:

    “For those who weren’t able to be there back in the day, this book gives us all a piece of rave history that we can hold in our hands. Much like flyers, little did we know, the membership cards and passes we got all those decades ago would end up having such a great story to tell of their own.” DJ Phantasy

    “Documenting the acid house and early rave scenes is incredibly important for future generations to know what a historic moment it was in dance music and youth culture. This collection of membership cards and passes shows the amazing creativity and artwork that went into showing your pride for attending events.” Mark Archer (Altern 8)

    “Members Only is almost encyclopaedic relating to the underground culture of ‘lost’ rave art illustrators. If this was submitted on a giant scale to a Biennale or Turner Prize it should win first prize. The designers that created these cards and passes are testament to a generation who parked their egos on a bench” Sarah HB
