  1. Tribal Dance rave M25 Orbital, East Grinstead, UK August 1989 ???

    Where is the sound ?? Turn it up time

  2. why is that foetus molesting sun 'journalist' cunt in this. why hasn't be been burned alive yet. utter fucking filth. the only reason that vermin was ever born is cos he was one load that tasted too horrible to swallow.

  3. I can't believe that turned into the commercial, corporate sh*tfest that we have today that is supposed to be called "a scene". NYC in the 90s was a whole other world. it was mysterious, gritty, adventurous, dangerous, yet you've never found yourself home on a Friday or Saturday night. and in the summer time when school was out, any night was perfect for having fun.
    Raves were in warehouses, yes, a lot were in clubs. But the ones where you had to go to an industrial part of the outer boroughs, were you got the address to the place 2hrs ago. then hit went there and you were told to go to another place. It was like a treasure hunt. then when you got closer, you could start hearing the bass. Oh what a feeling. Sometimes as you're getting 20 mins away, the E or Acid would start hiring which made walking into the doors much more special. The anticipation was like waiting to get a good present during Christmas. how i miss it. NYC now is like Disney world. Hell's Kitchen is so trendy. Even parts of Brooklyn that held the massive illegal outlaws are now trendy, high priced professionals pretending to be hipsters.
    I'm glad I at least got to experience some of it since I stated in 1996, but started listening to the music in '94. It's just that I was to young to go anywhere. I had to wait till I was 14. But I remember one party where this kid who looked like he was 13 (he was with his brother or uncle which is cool.). I just hope his uncle (who looked like 17) didn't expose him to any substances.

  4. "I've never seen rhythm and movement saturate human beings the way acid house did." Well he obviously never heard of the Grateful Dead… They had the record for 600,000+ fans at The Summer Jam at Watkins Glen in 1973… Just sayin

  5. UK police handled this cultural phenomenon a lot differently than how cops in in the US handled the Rave Scene. That's for sure.
