Velocity Press To Reissue Acid House Cult Classic
By: Velocity Press
Trip City is now back in this all-new incendiary incarnation - including a new introduction by author Trevor Miller and a foreword by Carl Loben (DJ Magazine) and the soundtrack by A Guy Called Gerald is also being released on vinyl for the first time as part of a bundle with the book.
Trevor Miller: "It's hard to imagine that over 30 years have passed since I began this story on a manual typewriter in a squat near WC1. Still, the real revelation is how relevant Trip City still feels for me, today. And what a thrill to be teaming with AGCG yet again, for 2021. Of course, the cultural landscape has evolved, but those infectious beats of my youth remain rousing and truly a redemption song."
A Guy Called Gerald: "When Trevor first gave me his manuscript for Trip City, I was excited by the experimental concept of writing music for a novel with the birth of British acid house as its backdrop. I wanted to create musical paintings which would evoke the story's atmosphere and illustrate its visions of a dark, seedy club scene and the characters lurking there. This reissue affords a rare snapshot of an evolving music scene and celebrates the history of electronic dance music over the past 30 years."
Colin Steven (Velocity Press): "This project is exciting for numerous reasons but I'm especially happy to be publishing our debut fiction title and I hope it's the first of many. Releasing a record too is amazing. I've always said our aim is to create a catalogue that feels like a trusted record label but now we are actually a label! To be putting out an EP by A Guy Called Gerald is also an honour."
