Project Description

Cover, The Manual: Ministry of Sound.

‘The Who, the What and the Where of Clubland’, The Manual: Ministry of Sound, chronicles the world renowned venue from its beginnings, and includes words and photographs by the authors. Published in 1998, seven years after the club first opened, the book looks back at the history of the club during its zenith, cataloguing the parties, people, DJs, fashion and music that sprung out and reverberated through its walls.

The book was published by Headline Book Publishing Limited, London. Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton went on to collaborate on the now go-to book on clubland and DJing, Last Night a DJ Saved My Life: The History of the Disc Jockey.
