    I bet it wasn't you, but a mate. This is just the same as your pretend profession as a tube driver.

    Clearly we're all in trouble if not having a grammy precludes us being able to pass comment on 'by numbers' dross of the likes of Deadmau5 :D

    and surely anyone who really went to Jenkins lane or similar at that time would be going nowhere near deadmau5

    It’s very middle class, but music and lineups are good.

    I know that feeling. Some of the best djs who ever come to Notts do so via BFLF. But when it comes down to it, I don't want my kids to have to experience a rite of passage into adulthood through me. I mean if we want to put a whole generation off hedonism & raving, let's get them to go dancing with mummy & daddy to techno et al when they're 3, because that feeling will still remain when they're 16, won't it?

    I'd like to know Gromit's top ten floorfillers for making people get back on the dance floor just after the buffet when everyone feels a bit full.

    possibly once in pub near stadium over the river that had a rounded wall on front as on a corner
    he looks a bit like a burly bouncer and had one of those silly styled beardy cuts, big, wide face giving it this and that

    I've seen this clip a few times and the more I see it the more I think "You know. I reckon I'd have a right fun night there"

    & the logical progression (no pun intended) of the whole idea of big fish, little fish is that all these young people will be put off decent electronic music in their 20s/30s & middle age, but will return to it when their parents, the original ravers, need wheeling in to the dance event, as a role reversal of the original idea, a sort of 'One foot in the Rave' event.

    There is a Peter Kay skit where he pretends to be an ex-raving dad and he says to his wife "Come on luv, stick 'Smack my bitch up' on, I love that one". Taking your kids to a techno rave is the exact equivalent of my dad playing his Status Quo records to me at top volume in 1979.

    I thought 1927 organised them?

    For a minute there I thought Gromit was that bloke who kept swinging me and the others around the floor of the pub...disco??

    Who was that guy?

    Gromit was the slimy one
