Acid House - The Next Generation - BBC Radio Music Documentary - cheops
What do you tell your children about your misspent youth when it's taken place against a backdrop of banging basslines, darkened clubs and illegal gatherings?
Veteran DJ and producer Chris Coco goes in search of the generation that refused to grow up, and discovers the people, places and stories which make up the last great youth culture movement - Acid House.
Smiley faces, repetitive beats and party nights that never seemed to end, sum up the halcyon days of Acid House in 1988. Twenty years later dance music is still hedonistic, but the early pioneers are now part of the establishment, with families of their own.
By talking to those who were there and those still out on the dancefloor, Chris will explore where those Acid House beats will lead next; whether things will be different this time around for emerging music scenes; and what he should be saying to his own teenage son.
Featuring contributions from Peter Hook, Annie Mac, Chemical Brothers, X-press 2, Pete Tong, Tom Finlay, Carl Cox, Judge Jules, Klaxons and ravers young and old.
