The lovely Sian over at geek is new chic blogged yesterday about the clubbing years and music in the early 90s. Well, me being me, I had to put my tuppence worth in and whilst Sian has a GOOD selection, I think she has missed some corkers! I was in my late teens in the late eighties/early 90s and spent many a night driving around looking for raves. Sometimes we found them, sometimes we didn't but we had a good time trying to get there and an even better time once we did.
The Spiral Tribe ones were always good and I also loved the Sunrise events. I also did many a club night in London at Rage (underneath the Arches at Kings Cross on a Thursday) and Orange on the Holloway Road (small gig) as well as some of the bigger, commercial raves held in warehouses across the South East.
Here are some of my favourite tunes from that time:
Shades of Rhythm - Sounds of Eden
Kariya - Let me love you for tonight
Future Sound of London - Papua New Guinea
The Prodigy - Your Love
Blame - Music Takes You
Rhytmn is Rhythm - Strings of Life
Fantazia - 15th May 1992 - first 30 seconds...you may *just* recognise someone in a SUIT!!!
Peace and Love
