Surprised people on this forum enjoy this type of music, quite a broad church here taste wise. The ladies in the headscarves didn't seem to impressed with the whole affair by the looks on their faces though 😃

Always better , I find , to keep your ears and mind open to a variety of genres ... even in your 60’s you can still cut some mean shapes on the dance floor at Fabric on Drum & Bass nights . 

Get some odd looks sometimes though , but who cares , only my kids .

early 80s must have been before it was a go to destination for house music.  What type of music and crowd was it ?

 

there are some great videos on YouTube from around 88 but i’m Assuming you went much earlier ?

Not seen that Dylan , but will deffo check it out .

I was there for the summer of 82 and 83 and went back in 86 and sad to say it was a bit early for the likes of Frankie Knuckles  and good House music , as he came along in the late 80’s.

The music style wasn’t that great to be honest. More like Studio 54 - hi energy / disco music but it was the sheer size and presence of the place. Like nothing I’d even been to before or since. Great place to people watch . 

Saw Kid Creole and the Coconuts there perform their Tropical Gangsters album there ... what a night / morning - great live performance . 

Es Paradís was the club for the foam party  but again not great music. 

There was better music at the smaller clubs and bars in San An .

The beats in early house music were pretty heavy, the repeating voice samples like "Jack, Jack, Jack" really didn't do it any favours though and have dated it terribly.

Some have, but there are loads of tracks that sound as greasy today as they did back then... if you want a Heavy beats / bass line you might try Meat best manifesto - Babylon.... 🙂

I did house and techno then got into northern.  So opposite way round to some.

 

i agree with your comment about some of the early Chicago tracks not ageing as well as some of the later house tracks.  But I guess in context they are important for the progression and to be there at the start of the scene would have been amazing.

 

i also think the same about soul music the early 60s stuff is a bit bland and much prefer the late 60s and 70s where the sound has developed and evolved.

I thought it was an excellent programme,an interesting insight to a scene and music which passed me by for various reasons .Mirrored the Northern scene in some ways ,I can see why some people from the Rare Soul Scene found attraction in it .

Mental music,  birds,  drugs, moody places where you were frightened to go to the loos, and basically running about playing silly buggars all night Eddie, sound familiar? 

Im like Dylan, my heart has been with soul music since first year comprehensive, 1981, but all the real fun was had on the house or rave scene,  I've never felt I've fitted into the 'soul' scene all the years I went, but myself and all 'our lot' from Birmingham travelled all over the uk for 4/5 very happy years, we had a ball and went for the crack...  We knew everybody, all the regulars, loads of big groups like ours from different cities all over the Uk, the promotors, the dj's, But I never felt that freedom at a northern soul gig, not in the same way... 

So yes it was very much the same attitude, but 'raving' was a Broard church, and it was always more inclusive... You just turned up and did your stuff and nobody gave a f&£&£k

Yes our club scene was great and chaotic.  This was where I grew up.

But musically now I tend to be firmly listening to soul from all eras I very rarely listen to house and techno from my time and never take the time to find new examples.

 

from the documentary

the guy Paul staines who did PR for large raves and now runs a political blog and backed boris FFS and his old boss who paid miners to go to work with the sole intention of causing unrest in communities.  Pure scum.

 

i was only very young at this time but these last 3 years are probably the time i’ve Thought more about politics than any other time in my life.

 

crazy times and looking like things are about to get a whole lot worse.

I quite enjoyed it. I don't think I would've told the story in the same way. It is incredible how it became so massive so quickly and still continues today.

The programme seemed to wrap up quickly and I feel there was more he wanted to say.

 

i think what goes on today is a million miles from the times shown in his footage.
