Gaynor Goodman for me, always made my day on my paper round when she had them out.

Also used the between two papers technique for the stealing of a grot mag, paper must have looked as rigid as I did  once I had a flick through !

Started off as most, rave tapes from the local record shop, trading them with mates. Fantazia at Matchams in Bournemouth in 92, then a mate gave me a cassette by someone called Sasha, and that was it.
All I would buy then was cassettes with Sasha on them, some were not him as we know !
In 94 myself and a mate just said fuck it, let's get away from the local ritzy's on a Saturday night, flicked through mixmag and saw Sasha and Digweed playing in a place called Hildenbrough in Kent, so off we set from Deepest Dorset and that was it, we never looked back, following them all over the South Coast and London for the next few years.
This first visit to see them in late Summer 94 coincided with the release of Ren 1 and it blew me away. Like others on here, started tracking down the tunes on vinyl like a man possesed.
Brilliant times and great memories.

Used to have this on repeat on our journeys up from Dorset to Kent for Babealicious.

Good times and a great soundtrack for both the journey up and back as it used to finish at 2am.

If i had a time machine, that's where i would travel first !

I think they look pretty nice. If they are good, they will make the prices for second-hand Technics decrease drastically.

Don't really care about them having USB or not. I like the fact that the RCA cable isn't built in.

Agree, these look good. Would want to see some reviews before purchasing.

But if they are decent and it brings down the price of second hand Technics, then it's good news all round.

Looks like Sami K could be in the bag, just waiting for Real to tie up Kroos by all accounts (still plenty of time for it to go wrong though)

Not the bona-fide DM i had hoped for, but if he stays fit, still a hell of a player.

Just an RB (Debuchy still to be confirmed but looks like the deal is aleady done) and back up CB and ST to come then...................not after much this summer

Yep quality addition but not out and out DM ! Interesting to see where he fits in.
Will be quite full in the central midfield area, I wonder if he will let somebody go or just planning for the annual Diaby breakdown !

Remy deal seems to have gone a bit quiet, can't see it happening myself.

No Alias here Mr Boring.

Remy, Debuchy and a strong defensive midfeilder will show they really mean business.

Credit to the club after a few 'difficult' summers in the transfer window !

Do Chelsea really need Pogba ???


Nice to see us shopping in July for a change. Wenger doesn't normally change back out of his speedos until the 30th August

The ideal summer scenario for me would be


RB - Debucy is fine by me
DM - Would love Khedira
CB - Anyone half decent with prem experience for back up
ST - Sanchez bagged
ST - back up Striker, Remy would be decent

Can see all that happening but its a decent start

Agree Robbo. Jenko out on loan as part of the Debuchy deal has been rumoured. Good times ahead mate.

So who's our money on then ??

Brazil to win 2-1 in extra time

Argentina to win 1-0

Robben to dive about

Anyone going to catch Rodriguez for the Golden boot ??

IF it happens I think Debuchy is a decent signing, knows the a Premier league, played alongside Kos and as stated, must be ok if keeping Sagna out the national team. Plus at the right age to give Jenkinson / Bellerin a chance to get a bit more experience before challenging for the first team.

Sanchez and Bender next ??? Bloody hope so.

I'm sure John Digweed finds it amusing watching people squirming, begging, trying to align themselves to the 'good board member fraternity' ...

If the board survives, the moderator should have a hard line approach to rudeness, personal insults, bullying new posters, or young enthusiastic posters.

I'd suggest a mild mannered character who doesn't blow up on receiving insults themselves - MattBlack is one I'd suggest.



if i may be serious for one moment,

id be phenomenlly surprised if you and me had anything to say to each other in a nuclear  bunker while we wait for east ham high street to be irradiate , approx 25,ooo years .

but you do have a point re harsh banter of  new posters.

on the other hand , if you look back at many of the  bedrock virgins that have come on here in the past 2/3 months their op/threads are in some cases aggresive and preemptive in their nature , underpinned with an agenda before they even engage any one in conversation, in some cases straight from the very first sentence.

they expect nor want dialouge.

its a case of register -vent spleen-then run to the hills ,with weekly raids of the board  for their sustenence.

in some cases we have  personal abuse under a veneer of a respectable bedrock virgin tag , when it is quite apperant its a banned member or someone who reads the board and hasnt got the courage to raise percieved bad form with established members under their own name, hence the upward curve of so called virgins on here.

joey p joined with no agenda other to have a laugh and keep up with current music trends and swap tales of wonder. how many of these later bedrock virgins can we say that off??

a first class example of the new membership we need. micheal of norcross is another.

not someone who joins , starts a thread of by taking the piss out of platipus records then calls people racist without ever having engaging that person before, unfortunately for them without the wit,style ,bearing or manner to compete in the harsh dojo they have created.

its almost tangelble that  the younger element , newer members are bored , jealous, or simply antagonistic to older members swapping stories of clubbing/music/fashion and trends from the late eighties to late nineties.

its not our fault we were there first, on this particular scene ,  just as it isnt my fathers for seeing the high numbers/kit lambert/pete meaden/long john baldry in ham yard or the wag before acid teds jumped the mod scene.

i enjoy hearing bedrocks flashing young blades tales of the current scene. love to learn the new music which is being made today.


its a two way street which both the older and younger members should do well to remember.

indeed the cheyne stoking of this board is taking place under the watchful florence nightengale vigil  of uncle john, but to blame a handful of 'middle aged miserable cnts' is an anomaly and one which should be addressed.


as bowie said 'hang on to your self'


Thanks ETC. I'm here to pass the time of day with a few like minded individuals, not to upset or piss anybody off. This is a great place to share Prog tales of old, reminisce about old classics, pick up new mixes and laugh at Tottenham Hostpur !

Oh and piss myself daily over your rants.

My old clubbing days in the 90's were some of the best times of my life, and what I can remember of them, I dont want to forget !

Gutted.

Only just started posting but been reading for years.

So much 'nostaglia' being brought up on here, from those hedonistic nights at Babealicious in the early 90's, discussing which tunes were dropped, to the fun of reminiscing about the excitement of visting Music and vinyl Exchange, to the discovery of new music from recommendations. And ETC's wonderfull laugh out loud posts / rants.

And that latest Sneddon mix, a true calssic.

All this will be lost. For a few idiots spoiling the fun.

I'm a new member, have been reading the board for years and decided to join in the banter. Yes, it goes over the top, is a bit clicky at times but so much good information and decent people on here, would be a shame for that to go to waste because of one or two idiots.
Some on the mixes posted on the mixes section are amazing, music that needs to be out there and heard - isn't that what it's all about really ?!
