Guess "people" hate others broadening their conciousness though acid house and there-after. Now they got drunken rockers, R&B freaks and teenage girls running wild on mass-produced pop boy bands.
speedy1vrs
thoses were the days music was at it's best & a night out was a good night out not like these days where people get so drunk talk rubbish have fights & listen to the same old music that is played on the radio over & over again
Cory .Swartwood

The officer at the end, ah what a cool guy.
John
He means, look at how the elders of your generation dismissed the rise of rave culture and look how you just dismissed this current generation. (like looking into a mirror)
PairoftheSocks
The world is definitely different. Look in the mirror and tell me how your elder society viewed the rise of the rave culture.
PairoftheSocks
have you heard of soundcloud? How about cyber culture? A its a new revival in different form. Chill out.

rave heeft zich ook ontwikkelt in hardcore dus als ik zeg bij een oud hiphop nummer hardcore holland heb k nog steeds gelijk:D

Long gone are the coppers like Superintendent Alan Pape,control of the masses wasn't as high on the agenda as it is now where we are being controled more than ever and the majority of people ask for it,but in the end we will all come a cropper as our freedom and civil libertys are taken away in the interest of public safety and ant terrorist issues,it's issues like these that give the government(who don't care about any of us) an excuse to take away your freedom and civil rights,wake up people.
gordongate
9 min onwards, that cop said something important about your human rights that the government took away with the utterly abhorrent criminal justice act not long afterwards. A shit piece of legislation aimed at giving the police free reign to prevent public protest as the 1985 miners strike was still fresh in the memory, dispersing crusties after the cornfield riots and finally adding an anti rave ammendment as people managed to find a new non establishment controlled outlet for self expression

TheBahnhofskino
Kraftwerk is not noise - what is the dj talking about???
Chris Baldock
I happen to think there were plenty of drug pushers that made these events happen Dozey arse's........E= Happy Times. F****ng Bozos!!! This culture was House Music and MDMA (E) whatever you called it. That was the mix, nothing else!!
Alex Starsound
I happen to enjoy the scene as much as I did since the late 80's, too many winers who say it used to be better and now its crap. The only thing I can think of that is missing is the freshness factor, music is produced way better, of course now there is more people who think they can produce good music. It seems most people just grow out of it and say it sucks now, I happen to love it still, no complaints here. Good film!
t1mTV
9:01 holy shit, a pig who makes sense? he must have been fired shortly after this.
Yidman01
Seriously whats worse? A rave with no attitude and good vibes or every town centre in the uk every weekend now, with drunken fights, stabbings and feral kids running wild?
Richard Williams
I WAS THEY, I JUST DON´T REMEMBER.
Steve Scherer

1992 i was only 5yrs old. But i wish to go back.. 21century sux.. sux so hard :)
stkcarm5
@welshhibby you are so right man, these days they're using electro house and this electropop shit and nu rave and calling it rave. And calling these electronic clubs and concerts with high prices raves. Bullshit. Raves are free and fun.
Mark Norman
2 minutes to get the right tempo!!?
marbrifox
Remember taping this on vhs when i was 13 years old.How it helped change my life for ever!Many times 2 of the tunes in this documentary have come into my mind while im fucked and i alw ays say im going to find em so lets get on it.Theres one with the robots dancing in the 3rd clip and then theres the last tune meditation.Dont make tunes like these any more or partys and lets face it the people also seem to be a dying breed too.Bring back the snowballs,disco biscuits,pearls,love doves etc.

Hardcore will never die.
Ace Beaty
I used to visit some back in the early 90's but I wonder are there any raves these days in the UK or are happenings in the fields today all official festival things and legal commercial stuffs ?
Norman Dario Franco Vanegas
What's the track that starts on 0:22??? It seems of Joey Beltram, then, sounds the prodigy with charly i guess.
Mart MooN
Love it
raisecain
@mcgooligan Do you have the citation for this? Date aired... etc? I would love that info as I am including this in my MA thesis.

Is Smokey Joes mixer the one that DJ Jazzy Jeff helped Gemini to design? It looks kind of rubbish.

Great days
Paulie's Channel
Those where the days, we had fun and the police just stood by, no trouble and everybody went home happy.
Steve Morgan
cool vid mate
smiffster2006
89-95 great times and it was fantastic to be in your late teens/early twenties then. Never once saw any trouble at raves. A copper at the time told me he preferred policing raves over town centres full of drunks anyday as all the people were loved up and were no trouble! I feel sorry for youngsters today, what have the poor bastards got other than P. Fucking Diddy and eating plant food.
kolakube123
@SirCalvingunner Just being honest mate. I can actually remember dealers being called pushers back then too. haha, great days back then.
SirCalvingunner
@kolakube123 dude that's the funniest shift I have heard in quite a while. Props

kolakube123
haha - drug "pusher" Like anyone used to "push" them on me. I used to seek them out. Did that make me a drug "puller"??? haha
Sloes
@mcgooligan Thanks for the post, ill change the date and add a link to your user channel!
Boris McGooligan
It's great you guys still appreciate these times. It was a fantastic film to make, but I wasn't responsible for the voiceover, it was added later by the BBC to suit a middle aged audience. I made this film in 1992 - the police were dead genuine and I could only find that one woman who objected. Good times! (I'm the filmmaker, Boris Mcgooligan.)
Steve Scherer
its amazing :)
HardcoreNuttah
what's the tune at 8:27 ?
capsule001
The tune at the beginning is Mikey B and Urban Hype - Relapsed (Surgeon Generals remix) And its a brilliant tune ; )

Robert Godridge

Robert Godridge
