Junglist With Two Fingas, James T. Kirk & Martin James + Live Dj Set

Friday 12 November 2021

JUNGLIST: Two Fingas (Andrew Green), James T Kirk (Eddie Otchere) in conversation with Martin James – followed by Live DJ set

 

Back in print after more than twenty years, with an introduction from Sukhdev Sandhu, this cult classic of underground British fiction tells the compelling story of young black men coming of age among the raves and jungle music of London in the 1990s.

Incandescent with luminous verse, prose and humour, this novel vividly documents the rollercoaster ride of a weekend spent raving during Jungle’s cultural takeover in the hot summer of 1994. Jungle, with its booming basslines and Jamaican patois, burst from the pirate radio stations and mixtapes into cavernous clubs, pulling a generation of British ravers with it.

Originally written as a way to document street culture as it became a feature of London, charting a time when working-class kids, both black and white, merged to dance as “one family”, Junglist is both a testament to black British sound system culture and a rawthentic account of inner-city life and the thrill of youth.

What a treat of a conversation we have in store – followed by a live DJ set in the hotel bar area.

Event and Discounted Book combo tickets are available (UK carriage included) as well as Event only options – attend in person in Manchester or join our livestream wherever you are around the globe!

There will be a dedicated Book-Signing event immediately afterwards. For Attend In Person tickets, books will be available for collection at the event.
