Summer of Rave 1989 – Full Documentary

Full length recording of this 2006 BBC broadcast, an attempt to describe the genesis of the rave scene over the Summer of 1989. Features some articulate interviews with Tony Wilson, Fabio, Sheryl Garatt, some voices from the establishment; Douglas Hurd, Kelvin Mackenzie and some frankly bizarre appearances from Jason Donovan, Bill Wyman and Sonia!
It tries to place the acid house generation in the context of Thatcherism and rampant 80’s consumerism.
