Generation Ecstasy: Into the World of Techno and Rave Culture
Generation Ecstasy is the story of rave culture and techno music. Challenging traditional ideas about music and spawning a global network of underground scenes based on the frenzied euphoria of the all-night dance party, rave is the most innovative, influential, and controversial pop phenomenon since punk rock. A celebration of rave's quest for the perfect beat and the ultimate rush, Generation Ecstasy is the definitive chronicle of rave culture and electronic dance music.
