WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It's 1994, and Johnno McCreadie is a teenager living in a small suburban Scottish town where the Criminal Justice Act has just come into effect - a new piece of legislation which effectively outlaws raves, or "public gatherings around amplified music characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats". Beats is a coming-of-age story exploring rebellion, apathy and the irresistible power of gathered youth. With techno. Lots of techno.
