Ninety 9

Vanessa Berry

Research output: Book/ReportBook


In the last decade of the twentieth century, when music was recorded on cassettes and movies on VHS, Vanessa Berry was responding to the loneliness of life in the suburbs of Sydney by constructing imaginary worlds from late-night music video programs, band T-shirts, mix-tapes and the 'dark energy' of goth. Written and illustrated by one of Australia's foremost zine-makers, Ninety 9 is a memoir about adolescence, its cherished objects, its magical places and, above all, its friendships - a personal guide to the end of the millenium for those who were too young to be there, and an intimate history, full of moments of recognition, for those who were.
