I went with a friend to the Wall and put back a few stones just for fun. The people almost lynched us—just for slightly challenging their reunified Germany. The book gives a sense of the birth of Berlin techno as both a historical inevitability and a freak outbreak.
This new, raw, stark machine music appeared—and then the Wall came down. And suddenly, people were dancing at all these sites rejected by recent history, to a music virtually reinvented from week to week. It was, as the title suggests, a family.
The masses of bodies, and the global attention, came later. I was still leaning against the bar, looking for Nick Cave. You need luck, the right friends, a ferocity of taste, perhaps even some courage.
