Irvine Welsh, the author of Trainspotting, has announced his plans to release an acid house album. His plan is to ‘counterblast’ the ‘joyless young artists’ who make dance music in their bedrooms but do not dance. The novelist noted that he just wants to have fun, dance and will even lend guest vocals to some tracks. Welsh stated: “It’s not really banging, full-on mad stuff, but it’s a lot of classic acid house — swirling effects and noises and boomy basslines. Some of it is pretty groovy. Hopefully, people are going to jump around and have a bop, but you’re not going to have your ears bleeding. And you’re not going to want to be stripped to the waist, salivating and banging your head off the floor.”
No release date has been announced.
