Publisher's Description
UKG, a new book by Ewen Spencer documents the early days of the UK Garage phenomenon. The project began in the summer of 1998 when Spencer was working as nightlife photographer for 'Sleazenation' magazine. The term ‘Garage’ was originally used to describe an eclectic type of dance music that emerged from New York’s Paradise Garage nightclub in the mid-1970s. UK Garage shared with this an emphasis on dancing but the influences included RnB, Swing and Ragga/Dancehall. Spencer’s photographs capture gesture nuance and details of individuals out at Garage nights, a departure from the ‘straight-up’ style typical to 'i-D' and other style magazines at the time. The forty photographs are accompanied by texts from Mike Skinner from 'The Streets', and photographer Jason Evans.
