Dave Haslam

Dave Haslam

Dave Haslam, a DJ who played nearly 500 times at the legendary Haçienda in Manchester, talks about his ‘Art Decades’ limited edition series of small format books, the subjects including Sylvia Plath, vinyl collecting, Courtney Love, artist Keith Haring – and his latest about acid house, urban politics and the end of the 1960s. He talks to author Lee Rourke.

Dave Haslam has since DJ’d worldwide, from Berlin to Detroit, Paris to Peru – and written five full-length books, including his autobiography Sonic Youth Slept On My Floor (acclaimed by Gilles Peterson as 'the best book of 2018'), and Life After Dark: A History of British Nightclubs & Music Venues.

Lee Rourke is a writer and literary critic. His books include the short story collection Everyday, the novels The Canal, Vulgar Things, and Glitch, and the poetry collections Varroa Destructor and Vantablack.
