Acid House As It Happened by Dave Swindells. A brilliant title for what is already the definitive unofficial visual history of 1988. Swindells photographed the first Acidnights at Future and Shoom in March ‘88, then Spectrum, Trip, Mutoid Waste Company, eventsorganised (or otherwise) in car parks and bus depots, all throughout that year of seismic change, ending in November with the appropriately named Adrenalin. Dave documented and wrote about it all back then as the nightlife editor of Time Out, and is now re-visiting and re-telling the history of Acid House, as it happened, in his own words, and of course photographs. It’s a fast ride.
