An exhibition of photos from the book takes place at the PYMCA gallery at London’s The Book Club, from now until the end of October. This photo shows acid house fashion at its height: a sweaty raver in ‘Aciiiid’ T-shirt dances at the now-defunct Astoria, London, in 1988.

Cyberpunks in London. The term cyberpunk was originally coined by Bruce Bethke as the title of his short story, published in 1983. Popular with clubbers and rock fans alike, the technology-obsessed scene flourished in the late ’80s and into the ’90s, though was rather spoiled when Billy Idol released a crap album called ‘Cyberpunk’ in 1993.
