  • A new book documenting the heady days of The Haçienda is out now. Rave One! by Peter J. Walsh features hundreds of photos taken inside the influential Manchester venue, which ran from 1982 through 1997 and became synonymous with the ascendant acid house sound. The book is available now and published by London-based company IDEA. Rave One! is Walsh's first solo literary venture, having contributed photos to previous IDEA publications like Spike Island. He's been a photographer for more than 30 years. Check out some shots from the book and the front cover.
    A book documenting another aspect of UK rave culture, the free party scene, is out next month. There are also exhibitions planned in Coventry and Milton Keynes on their respective rave history.
