About the Book

ONE OF THE GUARDIAN'S BEST BOOKS OF 2017

Who better to tell the story of the gentrification of a musical genre than the man who started out as Jungle's most streetwise ambassador and went on to collect an MBE from Buckingham Palace? But Goldie's uncensored, hard-hitting memoir is far more than just the story of the house-training of drum 'n' bass. As one of Britain’s most influential DJs, producers, promoters, and record-label owners - whose contributions to the UK rave scene in the 1990s defined the genres jungle and urban rave, Goldie is an iconic figure. Hugely addictive, this gonzo memoir is a vertiginous thrill-ride from the darkest depths of the West Midlands care-home system to the snowiest uplands of coke-crazed international celebrity. It is an explosive story of abuse, revenge, graffiti, gold teeth, sawn-off shotguns, car crashes, hot yoga, absent fatherhood, and redemption through reality TV.

  • Goldie

    Goldie was born Clifford Joseph Price in Walsall in 1965. He is a world-renowned musician, producer, record-label owner, artist and actor.
“A fabulous, whirling kaleidoscope of music, memory and trauma. Top highlights: when Goldie’s boa constrictor decides to try to eat him after he staggers home from the pub smelling like a kebab; and when his favourite piece of custom-made jewellery is stolen – right from under his nose – by dodgy Russian airport officials. Magical and cautionary.”
- Nicola Barker, Guardian's Best Books of 2017
“Bloodied and bruised . . . The darkness is channelled, transmuted and fought against . . . Goldie is an adept raconteur with a feast of anecdotes . . . Concussive, a bit chilling and thoroughly infectious – just like the music it celebrates.”
- Sukhdev Sandhu, Guardian
