A Guy Called Gerald: Return of the Gerald

Bethan Cole, Mixmag, February 1995

With 'Voodoo Ray' A Guy Called Gerald defined British acid house. With '28-Gun Bad Boy' he lit the fuse that became jungle. With his new album Black Secret Technology he is about to blow up. This isn't just a story of one man, it's a story of British dance music and jungle, of council estates, of drum machines and dreams. Words: Bethan Cole 

Total word count of piece: 1709
