what makes this even worse is that this is the guy from the Remote Viewer straight from my 100 tunes thread. what makes it slightly easier to take is that he lives in Accrington and has every excuse to be a miserable bastard

was trying to get at the eye factor connection with early E use in me thread, yet still forgot

The E face is one thing, but it misses the contexts of outdoor events and then the more fun element where, if you had 400 punters, a dance floor creates maybe a couple of dozen “leaders” (come psychopomps) who inspire, direct and channel the throng to deeper levels of expressive madness

Old? That east Anglia raving clip with the Giorgio Moroder lookalike says it all. That bloke was AVINIT

Btw, old men like myself look aghast at recent free parties with dancing morphing into mosh pits

All are welcome, but READ THE UNSPOKEN RULES KIDS

friend of mine in his late 40s/early 50s says whenever he goes to a club or to see a band, people just assume he's a dealer. at least a few times a night, someone will walk up to him and ask what he has.

I think dance music and rave culture is going to have to battle with its own heritage and history now it's been a fixture of culture for thirty years. I don't just mean the Back To '95 novelty day sessions for ex-ravers who've managed to get a babysitter for the evening. I don't want to stop going clubbing just because I'm not a twentysomething student - I listen to dance music pretty much constantly and it doesn't make sense to me that I should feel less welcome at a club, when I can go to gigs and see lots of people in their 50s and 60s having a good time without seeming out of place. At the same time I don't want dance music to become stagnant and feel shepherded into events where the headliners are the DJs I saw ten, fifteen years ago.

Yeah very true, if you grew up listening to dance music (whatever that means), where does that leave you when you're deemed too old to dance?

even now I feel old and out of place. I remember about six months before lockdown I was chatting my cousin and her pals and they were going to see Patrick Topping and some Hot Creations event, and I was saying I was going to see Young Marco so maybe I would meet them afterwards. They didn't get it, "who is that?" and "this doesn't sound like house music", which makes sense as people who've grown up ten years later than me will have a very different interpretation of what it is to mine.

As i said above it's one of the blokes from Hood, lo fi indie group releasing on every tiny label ever, and the Remote Viewer, basically the lo-fi autechre with loser aesthetic.

@boxedjoy That’s what I love about the sketchy crew from sound systems, no-one gives a fuck who you are just as long as you don’t act like a cock and chip in some shrapnel on the bucket whip round for the generator

it might take a summer (aug bank hols 2022), but the Lake District plus a farm that the filth can’t section, complete with 150-200 savages....

The oldest bloke i know in wetherspoons is in his 70s and I've seen him on the dancefloor. Though not in wetherspoons.

On the dance floor horizontally or vertically?

My Dad passed out at my kid sister’s wedding (after everyone has just about left to be fair) and when we asked what was happening he gurgled that grass was growing in his eye, so only polite to say hello and shake hands. 75, in his best suit, front crawl swimming nowhere
