Yowser, it’s been 20 years since the introduction of the Criminal Justice Act in the UK. The act which spawned Reclaim The Streets and that classic Prodigy inner sleeve that sowed huge curiosity in culchie eight year olds like me.
What better way to commemorate the anarchic spirit of that scene than highlighting how the flame it lit has passed on. Four years ago journalists piped up about he return of underground rave scenes fueled by recession and photographer Phil Clarke Hill isn’t vying for nostalgia. He’s putting together a “bookazine” (huh? yes new one on us too…) that captures the good times of the UK’s free party scene.
