It seems like only yesterday, but the acid house and rave era from 87-96 was something almost unreal. The movement began in around 87 when unlicenced music events began to take off with details of the events often given out at the last minute on pirate radio.
It was something unprecedented and the movement really took of in 1989 which has become known amongst ravers and acid house fans as 'The Summer of Love'.
It was truly amazing like some kind of musical revolution which brought new age hippies, and trendy clubbers together.
When I listen to the music from that era today it gives me a sense of nostalgisa, takes me back in time, gives me a sense of euphoria and tingles.
Here are a couple of my favourite tunes from that era.
'Corporation of One - The Real Life'
What a classic tune! 😍😍
'Liquid - Sweet Harmony'
These are just a couple of my favourite tunes from back in the day but there are so many more, far too many to mention.
The rave events began to take place outside more often, in places such as deserted airfields. Some of the biggest events were organised by a group known as 'Spiral Tribe' who played a big part in organising the biggest such event in history in the UK.
Spiral Tribes slogan was "We are here to reconnect the Earth" and the infamous 'Castle Morton' event in 92 attracted new age travellers, clubbers and just about anyone who had heard about it and felt like going.
On a bank holiday weekend so many people had descended on 'Castle Morton' that the police were powerless to shut down the rave, their only option was not to intervene and wait until the crowds had enough of their free party.
This rave made headlines in the UK it was incredible.
Here is some footage from the event.
This event angered the government and over the next couple of years they debated what they could do about it in parliment.
Ultimately this resulted in the passing of the 'Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994' which contained a clause which would criminalise these unlicenced music events, namely Sections 63–67 whic defined any gathering of 20 or more people where:
63(1)(b) "music" includes sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats.
This controversial bill deliberately targeted these events and made things more difficult for rave organisers.
