    Just been lent the 'remixed' version of 'all crews'... essentially a history of the progression from acid house of the illegal rave days to jungle to jungle drum and bass (JDB) to the two sepearte factions of 'jungle' and 'dnb'...

    started reading it yesterday and fuck me running it's good! really interesting to hear bout the founders of our music... and the fact most of them started their careers before i was even conceived, let alone born!

    thoroughly recomend it to any drum and bass fan!

    also makes you realise the hard work, blood, sweat and tears that went into making drum and bass what it is today... and how the youth (including me) have little or now respect for this!

    yes yes yes, reading this book now. highly recommend it to everyone on the forum. literally buy it. you will love it, it's full of people stories like sum chap talking about his night when he ended up sneaking through a window @telepathy back in the day and then sum guy pulls out a blade and starts cuttin everyone up on the dance floor.. seems crazy back in the jungle days.
    also he describes seeing andy c do a set at the end way back. cant recommend enuff!!!
