    Seems I arrived there as HM Govt left...I can report that from '95 Zodiac had quite a few jungle nights alongside the gigs, and was a decent venue... But yeah, the Oxford Tube remained the best nightlife option

    Wait, were you in/at Oxford then too Baboon? How come I never knew that?
    I liked Brunel Rooms in Swindon but all my friends were from school nearer to Oxford so none of them were ever up for going that way.

    I'm interested in how now legendary times in music e.g. hardcore, acid house, uk garage, grime - have become misrepresented in the media and collective imagination.

    Obviously even people who were at Rage or whatever only had a partial view of something much bigger but what are some of the big myths you see now accepted as gospel?
    i wasn't at rage, no. but i did go to a number of raves around that time. i heard people like rhythmatic, 808 state, and derrick may around 91. i liked things like the ragga twins and SUAD when they were happening and those records were coming out. i was dj-ing in edinburgh and glasgow in 92 when i was a student - mainly things that were "on a ragga tip". but i did go out a lot. i definitely wasn't in the thick of rave - but my view would count as more distant observer's view - more like your regular 21-year old.

    my recollection is that:
    a) most of the time as a punter you didn't know what in the hell it was you were listening to. the categories didnt seem obvious because it was all so new.
    b) there was almost no sense of purism - you would hear a big mashup of techno, house and stuff that had elements of ragga and hip-hop mixed in
    c) the lineups , when you look back at them, you had all manner of different bods sharing the platform

    there definitely were these little pockets of aesthetes focused on particular styles - the cluster around reinforced records that played at rage especially. and you definitely hear pirate radio sets that are "pure hardcore" - so i'm not saying it wasn't out there. but straight after "that set" on the radio you might hear another on a slightly different tip that wasn't subBase/shadow and might have been more housey etc.) you'd also find techno or house djs playing tunes that nowadays you would class as hardcore. 93 was when it became much more ghettoised/segregated imho.

    my 5 cents strictly.

    Do you know of any records that were big back then which haven't made the canon?

    that's a bad tune sufi.

    they ended up making almost-but-not-quite-rave music like "nice one boy" and "magnet" - almost techno.
