Detroit 67 Book Launch with Stuart Cosgrove & DJ Harri
Tomorrow sees the launch party for Stuart Cosgrove's amazing new book Detroit 67: The Year That Changed Soul at the Sub Hub Loft Space on Buchanan Street.

Sub Hub & KILTR welcomes professional journalist, broadcaster, and Channel 4 television executive Stuart Cosgrove. Stuart was a staff writer with the black music paper Echoes and Face, Media Editor with the NME and a feature writer for a range of newspapers and magazines.

During this event Stuart will talk about his long awaited book, Detroit67. Afterwards DJ Harri will provide an exclusive rare Soul set recorded straight from Stuart Cosgrove's record collection.

Detroit67 is the story of the city of Detroit in the most dramatic and creative year in its history. It is the story of Motown, the breakup of The Supremes and the implosion of the most successful African-American record label ever, set against a backdrop of urban riots, escalating war in Vietnam and police corruption. The book weaves through the year as counterculture arrives in Detroit and the city's other famous group the proto-punk band MC5 go to war with mainstream America. The year ends in intense legal warfare as the threads that bind Detroit together unravel and leave a chaos that scars the city for decades to come.
