- Old school ravers ride – anyone be up for this?
Ha ha been in Blackburn today, looking at furniture outlets (or whats left of them). OH commented that it is sad how many businesses are now gone leaving massive buildings empty.
I said that what you see as a sad indictment of our times, I see the opportunity for a Rave! Shame the ‘kids’ dont see it that way 😥Posted 6 years agodeviantMember
Sterns!….now theres a blast from the past.
Carl Cox was local to that area wasnt he?….always wondered how they got him to do so many smaller gigs down that way.
As much as the big events of the 90s were fun, there was a lot to be said for the small, dark, underground clubs like Sterns….in my area it was the Rhythm Station in Aldershot….those up north had Shelleys….
**** me, i went to that Universe do in ’93….i was 16 years old! Hahaha…what a tune to open with ‘Fall Down On Me’….
Lenny Dee?…yep, didnt get the exposure he deserved…i got into techno a bit later than that….the good DJs for me were Scorpio, HMS, Producer, Bass Generator, Loft Groover etc….loved a bit of Gabba in the mid to late 90s….also liked Mark-EG, he is proper nuts.Posted 6 years agokudos100Member
Brighton a bit far for me probably, and seeing as my vinyl collection only starts from about 1996 seems I’m a bit young for most of you!
I’m not old enough to remember the summer of love or the beginnings of acid house, but I still did plenty of partying in the 90’s 🙂Posted 6 years ago
Brilliant idea but I’d be concerned that it’d just turn into a “I was there and know more niche choons than you” type thing which is a million miles from what made it so brilliant at the time (assuming we’re talking early to mid 90s) – people just having a brilliant time, no agro, no attitude, no ego.Posted 6 years ago

Ah,Shelleys – good times, then when it shut BYO Doncaster Warehouse.
In spite of my body not being up to it now, couldn’t do a rave these days and get ‘that feeling’, the drugs just aren’t the same.
Re: Ratpack – I was standing in the corner, I was searchin for me Rizla, to the tune of Toms Diner by Suzanne Vega – last saw them towards the end of the rave era at some club back in Stoke.Posted 6 years agoLambrusco CowboyMember
Top thread, a few tunes I remember that stand out from a northern/mancunian perspective – not sure if i get the link thing right first go, but anyway you can probably find your way there if you’re arsed…
and this is a bit special for those that remember…together – for jon and emma…harmony…
I hope people have good memories…still high on hope.Posted 6 years agobigsiMember
So if we all arrange to meet on the upper bridge of the A27 between Stanmer & Coldean at 11pm ride around the singletrack for 5 hours trying to avoid the rozzers & following various clues before finally arriving at a field where there are 2 dozen riot vans turning people away while a couple of guys try to dismantle their sound system before legging it in the boot of a mates car to avoid being arrested before heading back to a mates house for a smoke & some chill out toons that sound just like i remember it. 😯
Or we could head over to Climping beach and relive the Fear Teachers gig 😛Posted 6 years agoDugganMember
