Specific State '89 is a book that raves along in three parts. Firstly the novella set in London at the time of the Second Summer of Love-1989. Two friends are getting stuck into the emerging rave scene and decide to set up their own pirate radio station because of their deep love for house music. It's a story inspired by the pirate radio station Centreforce 88.3. The story jogs through each month of the year as the characters live, sleep and breathe some of the biggest illegal raves being put on. They also take a trip to Manchester to experience the northern rave culture and the infamous Hacienda Club. The second part of the book includes the stage play script from which the novella was born and the third part includes interviews with Centreforce deejays old and new, house deejays from the UK and the USA and promoters of those legendary raves.'

About the Author:

Ian Snowball - Born and raised in Kent. Ian has an admiration for music and cult writers such as Pete McKenna and John King and tends to read any books with musical connections. An early fascination with music kicked off after having bought his first 7 inch record That's Entertainment by The Jam. From here on there was a musical discovery that included Northern Soul, Reggae, Ska, Punk, House music and such bands as The Jam, The Small Faces, The Prisoners and The Who. Ian began writing books in 2008 and had his debut novel Long Hot Summer published in 2009. His next project was a book about British youth cults called Tribe: Made In Britain, which he co-wrote with Pete McKenna. Ian and Pete then collaborated on a crime fiction novel about Mods and East End gangsters that was set in 1967. The book called In the Blood was published in 2012, the same year as Thick as Thieves (Personal Situations With the Jam)-co-written with Stu Deabill, of which Paul Weller said was 'the best book on The Jam and its audience I've ever seen'. 2013 then saw the publication of Supersonic (Personal Situations With Oasis) and From Ronnie's To Raver's (Personal Situations in London's Clubland) which were also co-written with Stu Deabill. And in November that year Ian and Pete had their northern soul fictional short stories book called Nightshift/All Souled Out published. In 2014 Ian had three books published. His book about Ocean Colour Scene called Soul Driver was published one month after his book on Dexys Midnight Runner's called The Team That Dreams in Caffs which he co-wrote with Dexys band member Geoff 'JB' Blythe was published and finally that year Ian's other published book about the Medway garage and punk scene was called the Kids Are All Square. In 2015 Ian co-wrote That's Entertainment ( My Life In The Jam) with The Jam's drummer Rick Buckler. 2016 also saw the publication of Ian's book Keith Moon: There Is No Substitute with an introduction by Pete Townshend and a foreword from Clem Burke. This was Ian's third best-selling book.
