‘JUNGLIST’, the first novel written about the London jungle scene of the early 1990s, is coming back into print for the first time in more than 20 years. Re published by Repeater Books, copies will land on shelves again on 10th August. 

Written by Eddie Otchere and Andrew Green — who used the respective aliases James T. Kirk and Two Fingas — the plot hones in on a group of young Black British men on a lost weekend raving in the UK capital. 

Adopting a stream of consciousness approach, the story expands beyond the immediate dancefloor, and touches on the significance of London’s various electronic music communities, rave and sound system culture in broader terms. The new edition comes with an introduction by Sukhdev Sandhu, whose previous work includes London Calling: How Black and Asian Writers Imagined a City, and I’ll Get My Coat and Night Haunts: A Journey through the London Night.

The re-print of JUNGLIST will also be celebrated with a number of events, including an official launch at The Social (10th August) and Rough Trade East takeover (19th August) in London. Those looking for more pages on music should check out ‘NANG’, the first colouring book inspired by the UK grime scene. Manchester’s iconic Haçienda nightclub also appears in its own photobook, while Public Enemy’s Chuck D has announced a new graphic novel to mark 30 years of ‘Apocalypse 91’.
