    Detroit’s musical and social history from 1960s onwards explored in new book

    A new book explores Detroit’s musical and social history from the 1960s onwards.

    Written by Joe Molloy, Acid Detroit: A Psychedelic Story of Motor City Music constructs a “technicolour” view of the Motor City at a time when the spotlight was predominantly on California, offering “a mind-expanding tour through time and space that explores the lost possibilities, histories and hidden potentials of the city”.

    Taking its cue from Mark Fisher’s notion of ‘acid communism’, the book aims to show how Detroit was “an unequalled hotbed of radical activism, urban unrest and sonic innovation” and covers everything from garage rock to techno and hip-hop.
