Danny Rampling - Archive Interview : From PEOM

danny rampling zani 6.1988 was an important year in terms of music and fashion, there was an exciting counter culture emerging, called "Acid House", following in the tradition of Mods of the mid 60's, the hippies of the late 60's and the punks of the 70's, England was buzzing again and there was a media frenzy.
