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.Posted 4 months agoeskayMember
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!”Posted 4 months ago
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!!!!!Posted 4 months agomakkagMember
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.Posted 4 months agobikebouyMember
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.Posted 4 months ago
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)Posted 4 months agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
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 mePosted 4 months agodoris5000Member

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.Posted 4 months ago
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!Posted 4 months ago
