The only knob on it was Pete Waterman mate-his dancing was ludicrous!

Cool

Not my scene, but I do have fond memories of THE MAJESTIC in Reading in 88, on the way there one night one of my mates had taken too much sulfate and wouldn't stop shouting at passers-by so we decided to chuck him in a ditch so we grabbed him arms and legs and flung him... but it was deeper over the railings than it looked, he fell about 10 feet, feeling guilty me and another got him out, and when we got to the door they wouldn't let him in cause he had scruffy shoes, once when queing up, we realized nobody had any dosh left after the pub, so home we went

I try to be..

Been doing it for over 20 years now to various degrees. Only ever played in Scotland once though in Edinburgh about 10 years ago.

I class anything before and during as 'essential research'...

I think I'm old before my time, I try to avoid the places as much as possible now. I do occasionally go to Unit in Southampton, but that's usually because I've been to a gig there and the clubnight afterwards is free.

I tried my hardest to avoid the rave/clubbing scene in the late 80's/early 90's, but inadvertatently found myself dragged in from time-to-time, as the ravers had all the good acid. So I'd have to pay to get into a nightclub just so I could hook up with the dealer to get my score. The whole scene was ****ing nuts, people all dancing in a fashion that made me feel extremely uncomfortable.

So no, wasn't ever really into the scene, but it did revitalise the interest in psychedelics for a short period, which was good for me, not so good for anyone who had a bad trip.

I'm a reformed character now, though. Just in case you were wondering. And I ****ing hated that rave anthem 'We Call It Aciiiieeed' with a vengeance. What a boredom inducing song if ever there was one.

At the end of each Saturday night we would wander down to the Cat's Whiskers, then Later Angels nightclub and just drink / dance the night away. Those were the days when no one cared what you dressed like, a rock band t-shirt was just as acceptable in the clubs as shirt and trousers.

Happy days.

Sigh!


Hadn't it changed into The Ritzy by the time Hitman and Her visited? It was definitely The Ritzy when they last visited in about '89.

I used to go to the Carlton a bit too, I was one of the founders of The Mud Club over at the Kestrel Suite if you remember that?

Worked at Xpo for a while too, which was never anywhere near as busy as Angels was in it's hey day.
