Wayne Anthony | Art Series | Genesis’88 Gold Coin

Genesis’88 Co-Founder Wayne Anthony continues his journey into self expressive art. This commemorative coin celebrates one of the most uplifting periods in British history. Acid House and the Second Summer of Love 1988 triggered a nationwide movement of people in search of the biggest illegal parties the country had witnessed. Events organised in total secrecy by young inexperienced party promoters at the very forefront of an industry today worth billions. 

Genesis’88 were booting off warehouse doors, claiming the buildings for one night of pure hedonism coupled with Acid House music and MDMA. Wayne Anthony and his partners staged a large scale event every Saturday for the first three months of 1989. Starting with a huge New Years Eve party with Sunrise. Every week a different venue in another part of London or well outside the city. Genesis’88 continued staging events until 1990.

Genesis’88 collaborated with counterparts and living legends Sunrise, Energy and Biology. The story was later told in the book Class of 88 (Virgin Books) written by Wayne Anthony and published in 1998 (reissued by Virgin 2018).
