Flashback: Parties for the People by the People

Regular price £19.99

'Flashback- Parties For The People By The People' tells the story of the infamous Blackburn Acid House 'parties', the vital part this moment of counter-cultural history has played in the social, economic and cultural lives of the area itself, and more broadly, of the country as a whole.

 

Taking in the post-industrial landscape of the area, the impact of years of regressive politics, both local and national, the confluence of football hooligans, casuals, gang violence, and eventually, the dispersal of all that into the culture of the parties and the emergent ecstasy boom, this is a complicated rendering of both time and place, told through multiple, diverse voices, and through a combination of reportage, fiction, poetry, and oral history.

 

Featuring texts by Adelle Stripe, Feargal Kinney, Alex Zawadski, Anna Wood and a conversation between Balraj Singh and Jamie Holman - this publication from Rough Trade Books comes as a fold-out pack containing 2 zines and a cultural map (produced by Dorothy) of places, people and events that document the history of Blackburn parties.
