I watched that Music Nation documentary about the Egham/Windsor Balearic network and how the scene went from football hooliganism to hands in the air in the space of a summer. I thought the documentary showed some pretty cool footage of Farley et al bowling around at raves and at Full Circle which was good. Content a bit lightweight though.

Did bring up one interesting concept that may explain why there is so much difference between the perception of dance music in the UK vs say the US. It's pretty apparent the whole rave/acid house reveloution changed the UK as much as the summer of 67. The concept of people being pre/post rave was mentioned in the program and I think it's pretty true .

The US for example didn't have this massive cultural shift that we had in the UK, therefore have just bastardized house music to fit in with their corporate culture. I used to get a bit piseed of living over here and seeing what they were doing with EDM, but now I just think it's so far away from what true electronic music is all about it's now irrelevant. Bit like gabba.

For a lot of people who started going out in the late 80s/90s the scene is very personal. I remember going to crappy ritzy type clubs at 16/17 and nearly getting the shit kicked out if me and my mates . Standard fare for provincial england. Then we got into house and started going out in London and people actually spoke to you! Plus the music sounded like it was from another planet compared to what was being played at the ritzy.

The UK both structuraly and people wise changed so much for the better in the 90s due to in part the whole acid house ethos.  That is sometimes either misunderstood or forgotten by many commentators but good it was brought up in this documentary.

ive only got into them recently, since their first albums they have come a long way and now are producing a really great range of moods in their tracks - they are stellar live, highly recommended. the effort they put into they sound and visual design is really second to none
