Terry Farley / Before Jack Had A Groove

Terry Farley, alongside Roaul Galloway, has been working on a book project, ‘Before Jack Had A Groove’, telling the story running up to Acid House starting in 1988. It’s the story of Soul Boys and Girls and the forming of a scene and culture that gave Acid House the foundations required to happen the way it did. Currently they are looking for a publisher to get involved so if anyone knows anyone then get in touch here. The chapter we are running, ‘All The Young Dudes’, focuses on the Kings Road and the scene around Acme Attractions and Sex. Those interviewed include Acme Eric, Don Letts, Andrew Weatherall, Nancy Stannard, Chris Sullivan, Steve Lewis and Norman Jay.
