The Love Dove Generation

Billy Daniel Bunter has published a book about the London warehouse and rave scene from the late 80s through to the 90s.

The Love Dove Generation features contributions from The Prodigy, Slipmatt, Mark Archer from Altern 8 and Eamon Downes from Liquid.

The book reveals interesting stories from the time:

Did you know that The Prodigy played for £10 each at their first ever gig at The 4 Aces in Dalston, east London?
Did you know that Take That were Altern 8’s warm up act?
Did you know that Liquid created their classic track Sweet Harmony for just £80?

Bunter was one of the youngest rave djs in Britain and performed at the Labrynth in east London before embarking on a worldwide career as a dj.

“Twenty five years ago when I first started out in the rave scene I never really had a plan.  I just knew that music had to be a part of my daily life.  It’s mad to think I have gone from selling spuds to djing all over the world, releasing gold-selling albums in the process.  Now I have written and published my own book.  Life has been full of ups and downs, with good times and bad, but I’m still here to tell the story.  I hope you enjoy reading about my life as much as I’ve enjoyed living it,” he says.
