Never particularly used to enjoy the walk from Digbeth Sanctuary to Birmingham New Street of a Saturday morning as a GodsKitchen all nighter had started to thin out in the early hours. Properly rough area at least back in the late 90s, not helped by the comedown paranoia and the solo walk because your mate had pulled some mutant (ginger) cyberkid with blue braids, furry boots and a PVC-sweat-drenched crotch.

Done the same walk many a time...sometimes stopping at the meerkat pub...strange mixture of spannered clubbers and workers from the markets having a post night shift pint. The area has improved a bit since then

Cream was the only club where on one occasion the bouncers made us take our shoes and socks off.

Had that in GodsKitchen once. AFTER I'd got through the door.

I was absolutely wasted in there, and I'd been chatting to this girl who seemed alright (just as smashed as me, though). Anyway, I was almost out of money and she was like "yeah, I'll buy us both a water if you'll go the bar". The bouncer must have seen a spasticated attempt to take her money out of her pocket and hand it to me and he storms over and collars us both and takes us to separate rooms. I'm like "whazza fuk is zzissh allabout?" He goes "She was buying drugs off you wasn't she?" I'm like "I haven't got any drugs. Can't you see I've taken them already?" (probably not a wise joke in the circumstances) He's like "empty your pockets" (nothing) "Now take your shoes off... and your socks" (nothing) Then two of them just lobbed me out.

Spent the next two hours in Mr Egg waiting for my mates.

Currently reading Hairy Maclary from Donaldsons Dairy and Peppa Goes to Hospital.
Hairly Maclary is a fantastically witty coming of age story about of group of friends and the scrapes they get into against their arch enemy Scarface Claw, the Toughest Tom in town. Peppa Goes to Hospital is about Peppa, who Goes to Hospital. I hate Peppa, I hope she gets Pig Aids

Ellie Harrison off of Cuntryfile

Yup. When she talks of 'ploughing', then some folk think of other things. Bit of an odd walk to her tbh, but probably due to the aforementioned.



good find. if you`ll excuse me, i`m off to the shed with bottle of Hook Norton and 2 slabs of cold meat.

The tune that cemented the conversion from happy hardcore to house was:


perfect prog tune.

used to go to raves all the time for the jungle and hh

couldn't be doing with hh once it went all 'bouncy'

Used to goto Kinetic in Stoke and gradually found myself more and more in the house room as the main room was like listening to cbeebies on speed. Fucking `Toytown` being an example. Had a housemate who used to play this full blast every morning. twat.

round the edge are the tour dates....

'BT the live experience in conjunction with Sony Playstation @ 1-12 Up your Ronson 2-12 Cream 4-12 Heaven 8-12 Hippo 9-12 Hastings Pier 11-12 Paradox 12-12 Empire 14-12 Que Club 15-12 Hacienda 16-12 UK Midlands 18-12 Time and Space'

I would post the pictures for proof if you REALLY need me too. wink

I'm not questioning you mate.  LIKe I said must have been a couple of years.

No worries. I wasn't saying 'this is it'.. more 'this was one of his tours with them' kinda thing... I'm sure he did some gigs with them in 96 too. I was more pointing out the fact that I really can't be arsed posting the pics of it! wink As you were...

I went to the one at the Empire in December 95 and then am sure they played again in April/May 96 as remember not  going due to Uni exams the next day..was gutted. Should have gone for the all the use they`ve been.
