A new photobook has been unveiled paying tribute to club and rave culture in the 1990s. Kein Morgen (No Tomorrow) is out now via Leipzig-based publisher, Spector Books. 

Across the pages more than 15,000 images by Werner Amann document faces, places and scenes in a number of major cities. These include Berlin, Frankfurt, Dortmund, New York, and Zurich, alongside the Italian seaside town of Riccione. Located on the north east coast close to San Marino, the enclave played a pivotal role in the country's dance scene via venues such as Cocorico, which opened in 1989. 

Other clubs celebrated between the covers include Tresor, Omen, E-Werk, Tunnel, Limelight and Sound Factory. Landmark events such as Mayday and Love Parade also feature. Pictures are accompanied by text in German and English from Leif Randt, whose award winning novel 'Schimmernder Dunst über Coby County' ('Shimmering Haze Over Coby County') was heralded among the most original books of the last decade. 

Signed copies of 'Kein Morgen' are available to buy here, and will ship mid-February 2023.

Last month, a new book charting the first decade of hard house institution Tidy Trax was announced. Meanwhile, you can revisit our recent interview with club photographer Sarah Ginn. Her publication, 'Super Sharp Shooter', looks back at 15 years spent documenting dancefloors between the 2000s and early-2020s.
