England Hidden Reverse is a celebration of the UK's esoteric underground, written by Wire contributor David Keenan. Based around hundreds of hours of interviews with members of industrial groups Coil, Nurse With Wound and Current 93 to Whitehouse, Throbbing Gristle and more besides, the book focuses on these groups whose work accented peculiarities of Englishness through the links and affinities they forged with earlier generations of the island’s marginals and outsiders, such as playwright Joe Orton, writers like death decadent Eric, Count Stenbock, ecstatic mystic novelist Arthur Machen and occult figures like Austin Osman Spare and Aleister Crowley England Hidden Reverse throws light on the shadowy English underground industrial scene and is an essential read for anyone with even a passing interest in industrial music, culture, and the occult.
