This anthology investigates all aspects of counter culture in Scotland, tracing a timeline of seismic events, ideas and art-actions that were retranslated by each successive generation. It surveys the literary avant-garde of the 1960s, via Ian Hamilton Findlay, Edwin Morgan, Alexander Trocchi, and Tom McGrath; the adventurous art scene that gravitated to the Demarco Gallery in Edinburgh the 1970s; the wilderness of Thatcherism and the post-Referendum dark age; and up to the present, through Beltane, post-punk and dance nation, the voice of young Scotland.
