A group of kids in the '90s had a dream to make their voices heard - and this book documents their seminal impact on today's pop culture. DJ Target grew up in Bow under the shadow of Canary Wharf, with money looming close on the skyline. The 'Godfather of Grime' Wiley and Dizzee Rascal first met each other in his bedroom. They were all just grime kids on the block back then and didn't realise they were to become pioneers of an international music revolution. A movement that permeates deep into British culture and beyond.

Great insight showing the influences that helped shape the UK Music culture at a pivatol moment in history, from Jungle to Drum & Bass to Garage and ultimately Grime and all in-between.

Good listen and look forward to the TV show!

Way too short.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Hacienda?

The problem was lack of content rather then what should be cut!
