Hook, Bass player with Joy Division and New Order, tells the story of rave. I found that part of the book particularly interesting, I did not go with dance culture myself, so Hook has something to tell me here.
The main theme of the book are the financial difficulties and debaucheries from beginning to end of the Haçienda. He even prints each year's 'profit and loss account', they look disastrous. The theme runs thin after a while, though. Fortunately, the book is full of anecdotes and quotes.
It could certainly have been bettered by the editor, sometimes it seems quite floppy, only hastily reread before publishing.
