back to life



i missed acid house somehow. passed me by. i saw the smiley faces and the baggy whatnots out the corner of my eye somewhere caught a glimpse out the bus window bar hugged the milk bar and assorted other happenin' spots but it never took. my 1989 moments had a different beat just as room shakin' and heart explodin'. this still makes me tremble

soul II soul - keep on movin'

That was big in my 1989 too - cycling up Tooting High Rd with records in my rucksack to play for the bewildered (un)listeners at Hospital Radio 9 - also The Stone Roses and Pills Thrills & Bellyaches as I recall: I said son, I'm flirty - I only went with your Mother cos she's dirty x

Andy at work was into 'House' - he did me a tape; s'very good. It's where I first heard this.

All of those things happening, the baggy stuff, the acid house and this track are all rolled into one for me, where the 80s finally came good after such a promising start and where I finally got my punk or mod at the time it was happening.

Sorry, Acid Who?

I was all long hair and leather jackets at the time - whacking on the metal, grebo and glam punk

That album was everywhere that summer, coming out of every shop and car in the city. Always reminds me of a club called The Good, The Bad & The Ugly off Oxford Street which played lots of I guess you'd call 'grown up' dance music like Soul II Soul and Acid Jazz.

I went to the Milk Bar a few times. Bloody hard place to get into, only ever got past the bouncers when I had a girl with me.

missed it too. Amazing how being just being 5 years too old and still pining for The Smiths can have that effect
