Dont think I was there - Probs before my time.

...what was the party in London that I bumped in to you at... where X-Dream were playing a live "retro" set.
(God... isn't it scary when a "revival" set seems retro. .. so the original was double retro!) :/
For this next post, I would have really liked to have taken my time and drafted it first...but life’s too short, so I am just going to spit...
It’s 1996 and Goa Trance is all the rage, it’s my Mothers 40th and we’re on our way out there.
It was an all inclusive Thomson two weeker, so it’s Curry every day.
The Full Moon Party falls on The Winter Solstice and we’re in a rascal mini van heading to the party’s location at Hilltop - (when it was still just a Hilltop.)
This would be my first proper ‘all-nighter,’ I’d been to clubs and festivals and experimented but this was my first taste of an actual party.
I can’t describe to you how magic this was, from dancing ecstatically eyes closed, to holding my Mother on the dance floor, to watching the sun rise whilst drinking Chai, to walking down to the cliffs in the morning sitting outside a cafe staring out to sea and seeing a Dolphin leap out of the water.
This is my number one party ever, my best anything ever.
I was twenty one years old.
Is this the one that Gil played at? If so, I was at that party.
Vagator? Is that like a fanny rat?
Eat Static at the New Ardri in Manchester, probably a Herbal Tea Party, probably 1994 or thereabouts. Back when they'd have that big plastic brain on stage.Eat Static.
