Club Kids: From Speakeasies to Boombox and Beyond is a stunning visual study and rigorous critical analysis of the social trends relating to 'club culture'. The recent emergence of high-end clubs, which emphasise fashion rather than music, have become sanctuaries for misfits.

Club Kids: Underground Culture Summary

Club Kids: Underground Culture by Raven Smith

From the underground drinking establishments that blossomed in 1920s America during Prohibition, to London's 1980s new romantic scene, to the glistening grandeur of London's premier hotspot Boombox Club Kids tells the story of the cutting edge exhibitionists and pioneers who have frequented the clubs of their time. Club Kids analyses the way in which club regulars condense all the aspects of their underground, eclectic, emerging culture, into the nocturnal hours. With interviews from the biggest names in clubland- including Kash Point founder Matthew Glamorre, Boombox creator Richard Mortimer and All You Can Eat's K-Tron. Club Kids provides a photographic journey through the eyes of the young people who shape our societies trends and celebrates the underground night culture - seeped in glitz and glamour - which has broken through to the mainstream.

The Bookseller 'This book makes a fine job of highlighting the extremely different spectrum of the global underground club scene and its influences on mainstream pop culture.' Word Magazine 'From the days of DISCO and New York clubbing to Agyness Deyn of 2008, this book is a visual extravaganza and a history lesson in clubbing' Marie Claire Featured in Vogue France, The Observer, The Daily Times and Time Out
