    If you haven't got it I serially recommend that you get this book, it is the definitive history of DJing, by Bill Brewster who also wrote How to DJ (Properly).

    Did you know that Jimmy Savile held the first ever rave in a mutual society hall in 1943?

    I've not got that far yet, gf clocked it in town and bought me a copy last month but i've only got through about 100 pages.

    Is it the second edition one? (lighter cover, released 2006) Apparently the newer one covers more...

    Otherwise, you've ruined it for me.

    Bastard.
