Disco 2000: Nineteen New Stories From The Last Hours Of 1999

Disco 2000 (Nineteen New Stories From The Last Hours Of 1999)

Disco 2000 is a collection of short stories edited by English music journalist Sarah Champion. The book features (mostly) original contributions by various different authors including Pat Cadigan, Grant Morrison, Robert Anton Wilson, and Douglas Coupland.

The book includes Bill Drummond’s short story ‘Let’s Grind (or How K2 Plant Hire Ltd Went To Work)‘. The companion album released alongside the book furthermore features 2K’s Fuck The Millennium.

Despite its name the book is – unsurprisingly – in no way related to the KLF side project of the same name.

The party starts here… with a cast of crazy scientists, nomadic DJs, fetish queens, conspiracy theorists, killer ants, graffiti artists, gangsters, convicts, cult leaders, Netheads, repilcants, religious maniacs and ball room dancers.

Is it worth getting?

Since its initial release Bill has also included ‘Let’s Grind…’ in his own book 45. If you are slightly interested in his short stories chances are you already own that anyway, so there really is no need to pick up Disco 2000 just for this particular chapter alone. Considering the list of notable contributors (and the fact that copies change hands on eBay for less than the price of a pint these days) you might get some additional mileage out of it, though.
