    Forget the pills ,check if the venue has a defibrillator.

    Just remember the pills are a lot stronger now.

    Also, have fun.

    Deal with the matter. Deal with it proper.

    To say I’m jealous is an understatement, I’d like to see Bukem and Roni live also Dub FX who I’ve just discovered as a lyrical and soundful delight.

    I’ve got tickets for Roni Size in Feb, get some bought. London 23rd Feb.
    I was at a Karfty Kuts gig the other week, I’m 42. The enjoyment of music has no age barrier.

    Tickets for a rave ?

    Went to a rave a couple months ago was odd, kids not getting what a rewind was, snapchatting eachother whilst weeing… But nothing has changed when it comes to a heavy drop.

    With adult/parent eyes on didn’t quite realise how mashed up everyone was back when I was a youth.

    Tickets for a rave ?

    My thoughts too. Not quite the same unless it’s in a muddy railway arch with the rain shorting out the electrics and the ever present threat of the cops shutting it down.

    Still used to get tickets to illegal raves, buy the tickets from a record shop then have to listen to pirate radio on the night to find out where it was.

    I remember trying to find out where in the country Spiral Tribe were going to be on a Staurday night. Find a phone box and keep calling a number until the engaged tone changed to a description of a meeting place.

    Bank holidays were easy because the BBC news always announced where a “large group of travellers were converging to hold a rave!”

    This was spiraltribe at castlemorton 1992 I think

    Last time I went to a rave I was riding along the North Downs and loads of folk had congregated around a couple of sound systems.

    It was weird.

    I realised what I’d done the next day when I told my wife and she said “I’m not going, I’m too old for this sh!t”

    Special Guests, live n direct from the UK……

    Utah Saints. 😀 I’m gonna be practising my “running man” steps

    Greg Packer is doing an old skool set…. The Facebook page is full of 40 something’s posting rave and acid house tunes with the “oi oi’s” and “TUNE!” comments

    I’m quite excited. I’m not gonna get munted as I’m a responsible adult with a respectable job and I also have to drive home for an hour when it finishes so I’ll probably have a few beers at the start and dance my arse off.

    Nice one bruvvaaaaaaaa!!!!!

    im 39 and still go out .. good friend is a DJ which helps .. not into the little fella’s anymore and frankly am amazed at how Mashed people get. I have a chuckle and thank god there were no camera phones in my day (Although i am on a Helter Skelter video !) Last time i got a bit squiffy was at hospitality this year in fins-bury park – ended up talking about conkers with MC Foxy and half of Roni Size orchestra over a bottle of gin we “found” backstage.

    Looking forward to Goldie and the heritage orchestra at the roundhouse this Sunday.. bit more like it.

    Sounds like a hoot.

    I have some mates who still DJ, more the private intimate gatherings these days.. we’re all old gits now.. but there’s nothing like a few hours chucking shapes to lift the fug.

    Never done the drug thing, always found adrenaline quite enough thanks.

    Part of me is thinking “I’m going raving by myself” but the other part of me thinks “it’s a bloody rave, you’ll meet people there”

    The Facebook group is full of 40 ish ex-ravers who are mates with DJs and the crew look amazing tbh. After seein Roni t’other week I had a bloody blast dancing like a loon. Memories of early 90s (to be fair I moved on to dnb and techno and acid techno so I didn’t slow down until late 2000’s)

    Just remember the pills are a lot stronger now

    Stronger than 1989-92? I doubt it

    The early’90’s is where I’m quite happy to leave raving. I had some of the best times of my life and trying to replicate them would be nothing but a massive disappointment I’d imagine. I have a few mates who go to hard house club reunions, but they are mostly a bit younger than me

    Special Guests, live n direct from the UK……

    Utah Saints

    Unplugged?

    spoken like a true STWer 😆

    seriously though – any aul codgers thinking of double-dropping like the old days need to be aware that there are pills knocking around these days with 250 – 300mg MDMA in them.

    Ecstasy deaths are at their highest for years because strength varies so wildly now – so go carefully amidst the noise and haste.

    Whatever this guy is on 😆

    Believe me, back in ‘the day’ you wouldn’t have wanted to be double dropping the pills we were getting

    doris5000

    indeed, but plenty of people who are now 40ish thought nothing of double dropping (or indeed triple dropping, as I occasionally saw) from say 1997 – 2005.

    Yes pills could be fairly bollocks then. But even so, 300mg now is insane, and caution is well advised!

    I went to the Hacienda reunion gig last year.
    None of the females were searched, all the blokes were.
    Sniffer dogs at the entrance too.

    Bloody good night though.
    🙂

    Stronger now? If you ever had dollars you would probably disagree. They are just different these day tbh.

    The description of the railway arches brings back happy memories of late 80s early 90. Not sure I’d like to dance until 7am nowadays – got a bad knee.

    Arches on Sheffield? Mate used to do a decent technology night there.

    Reet, so I got a mate to come with. First thing she says is “can you get any pills?” a) they’re bloody expensive here b) I’m not wasting three days coming down and feeling like shit

    Buzzin tho. Can’t wait!
