362 / Boy`s Own Summer 1991 Part 2

Morales` Red Zone dubs, Steve “Silk” Hurley extensions, Todd Terry`s madness, and Underground Resistance`s unbalanced Mike. Dance Mania and Italians. The Future Sound Of London. Themes from “It`s All Gone Pear-Shaped”. Please forgive me if this goes astray as somewhere in 1991 I lost it.

Shopping in Eastern Bloc. Polish vodka in Didsbury. Purple Ohms in Conspiracy.

Parties in Marble Arch. Walking down Madison. Scarlet Fantastic. Sean’s coke bill.

Ibiza with the No-Body-Hair-Bellows Boys.

Sign Of The Times. Fiona, Fran, Dominick and Keelie. John & Greer. Asking Chris Butler if he was Hugo Nicholson. The microdots in Chester’s wallet. Mama told me not to come.

Dancing with barmaids at Pure Sexy. Puscha in sunglasses.

Shopping in Bluebird and Quaff.

Moby`s “Go”. Gary Clail at Glastonbury.

Backstage in Brixton. Paul Daley getting thrown out. Johnny looking crazy and the drummer from Pop Will Eat Itself looking vaguely threatening.

Glen Gunner at Moist fresh from watching “Terminator II” on Acid. Rampling on Purdey`s at Diorama.

Hairy chests, Sheep On Drugs and vivisection videos at Love Ranch. Guerilla records and Amyl.

Long Island Iced Tea in Freud’s. Big Brian and Justin.

Squaddies turned Psychedelic Skinheads. The guy from Wall Of Sound eating strawberry lip balm.

Craig (living) on (borrowed) Baked Beans. Derek in a wig on High Street Ken.

Fucking leather trousers. Reese & Jason.

Blind Lemons sucking dropped & trodden Es off the Milk Bar carpet. Ruth’s birthday and a mistake I never came back from.

The Feeling. Slaves to it.
