'Skagboys' launch (London)
Book Slam teamed up with our old friend and the 'Poet Laureate of the chemical generation', IRVINE WELSH, for the first ofour two-part launch of 'Skagboys', the prequel to 'Trainspotting'. Among those who joined Irvine at The Scala were his longtime sparring partners DEAN CAVANAGH and BOB MORRIS, alongside East Village resident, STUART PATTERSON, on the decks, plus the darkest magic with the lightest touch from BARRY AND STUART, and the electronic hoodlum that is DRUMS OF DEATH. This was literary nightclubbing like we used to do before we had children.
