Sound System Culture, Celebrating Huddersfield’s Sound Systems, a new book published as part of Mandy Samra’s Sound System Culture project, is out next month on One Love Books, with prerelease copies available here. Written by Paul Huxtable, who operates Axis sound system out of Huddersfield, and edited and designed by myself, the book documents an important chapter in the history of UK sound systems.

Produced alongside a touring exhibition and documentary.

Info:

The market town of Huddersfield, nestled within the Pennine Hills of West Yorkshire, has made a remarkable contribution to UK sound system culture. From Armagideon to Zion InnaVision, the Arawak club to Venn Street, Matamp to Valv-a-tron, this unlikely location has been a stronghold of the British scene, yet has remained largely overlooked. For the first time in print and featuring a variety of previously unseen archive material, this book celebrates the people who helped establish Huddersfield as the reggae and sound system capital of northern England.
