A coming-of-age story exploring rebellion, apathy and the irresistible power of gathered youth. With techno. Lots of techno. Tells the story of Johnno McCreadie, a teenager living in a small suburban Scottish town at the time of the 1994 Criminal Justice Act - a new piece of legislation which effectively outlawed raves, or 'public gatherings around amplified music characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats.'
With live DJ Alan Miller aka DJ Hushpuppy (original mix by Johnny Whoop) and live visuals provided by Jamie Wardrop.
