It was the Summer of Love, 1988 when they first held an ‘Acid Night’ at the Bear Cage in Leicester. I’d just finished school and there was an excitement in the air (my air at least) about all the radical forms of new music coming out, House, Acid, Hip Hop, Jazz and the idea that a new season of Peace and Love was sweeping the nation. Football hooligans had started taking Ecstasy and stopped fighting, I truly believed the 60’s had come back but with this Generation X it would take root. That feeling has returned to me..I feel we are again at a time of mass transformation and that again Love Will Find A Way.
When I walked in to the club, there was just smoke and a strobe light and the first two tracks in this mix playing (followed by a lot of the others). Some of the youngsters ask me what was it like? ..well it sounded something like this..
Enjoy 🙂 Felix
