Notes Description
The British town of Huddersfield, nestled within the Pennine hills of West Yorkshire, has played an important role in the history of UK sound system culture. In fact, in relation to the town’s size, its contribution to the UK’s sound system heritage is quite phenomenal. Featuring a wealth of previously unseen archival material, this book celebrates the people and sounds that helped establish Huddersfield as the reggae and sound system capital of northern England.
