Dave Haslam talking about writing, DJing, life…
In the mid-80s Dave Haslam was running a fanzine, putting on bands at the Boardwalk, and DJing twice a week at the Haçienda. He has since DJ’d worldwide – and written five full-length books, including his memoir ‘Sonic Youth Slept On My Floor’ (acclaimed by BBC 6 Music presenter Gilles Peterson as “the best book of 2018”).
His latest project is ‘Art Decades’; a limited-edition series of small format books about subjects including vinyl collecting, Keith Haring’s New York nightlife, Courtney Love’s life-changing trip to Liverpool in 1982, and Sylvia Plath alone in Paris in 1956. The new book in the series is ‘All You Need is Dynamite: Acid, the Angry Brigade, and the End of the Sixties’; published on August 26th 2021.
Expect entertainment and enlightenment. And a book signing session at the end!
Tickets are £4 and include free refreshments – sign up below!
