Me: crowd surfed to reef whilst coming up on 'legal highs'.
I still wear combat trousers.
at 9am on the day of release.
whilst having curtains and wearing a short sleeved T-shirt over a long sleeved T-shirt.
before putting the finishing touches to my Genestealers.
except replace genestealers with Orks. I didn't know a single person who liked genestealers. Ugly little bastards
after watching the x-files
if you purchased a copy of Candle In The Wind '97.
by the law of averages at least six of you bought this.
Mainly because I think she was a fetid stink bomb of a woman.
I inadvertently had a party on the night this happened, a friend turned up at about 3:30am whilst I was the only person awake, told me, we shrugged and made a joint.
you can't be sure... for instance, i was only 8 when it came out.
during euro 96.
wore midlength denim trousers with converse, and a tiedye tshirt, danced the dance to Saturday Night while at Youth club, and the Macarena.
Combat trousers and a long sleeved t-shirt with the word 'slacker' written on it.
on the cover?
I didn't really care too much. Any port* in a storm#.
Jo Guest worked behind the bar at our student union one night actually. I regret now not going along and telling her how many brutal masturbatings I committed over her body as a youth.
* - filth
# - hormone-induced wank frenzy
that's pretty bad.
selecting the best tracks from several Shine albums.
Wore blue John Lennon sunglasses and a James t-shirt.
Enjoyed Dodgy's "Staying Out For The Summer" more than I would care to admit to in public.
(I haven't listened to it since the 90s)
(i only had it on cassette tape but lost it)
worst cinema experience of my life. I was laughing at the frozen DiCaprio and she was crying. Cried all the way home actually
Why did we all go twice?! I've only ever been to the cinema about eight times in my life, and two of those were to watch fucking Titanic. I ask you.
(I think this was late 90s) Traded Pokemon cards.
that had been repainted gold.
Coca Cola, Sprite etc. Not real ones, just images, they were awesome but I can't find them online. This was the 80s though.
With real bottle tops attached!
Office Space style 'flair' to me.
my politics teacher words the day after:
"well, we had a bottle of champagne...and we waited...and we waited...and we waited...and when micheal portillo lost his seat...WE OPENED IT!"
good for you sir, now please give me a better mark for my homework.
I actually felt a bit sorry for Portillo when he lost his, he was quite dignified in his speech and seems like a fairly decent bloke these days. Unlike Mellor who was just (and still is) a total turd.
Long time ago.
I was 7, didn't pick them out, didn't buy them and didn't like them, but I still owned them.
Music for the Jilted Generation.
whilst listening to OK Computer on repeat with the sound cranked right up
Clifton to be precise
the telly broke after I dropped it because I was fiddling around trying to get Football Italia to work.
I couldn't tell if my mum was crying because of that, or Diana dying.
asking my dad when they'd turn off the news and put normal tv back on.
boom shake the room
let's get ready to rhumble
these are skills that stay with you for a lifetime.
I'd ad Whoomp! There It Is to that but I might be on my own. As I proved to be when I tried to start a drunken rap-a-long to it on Friday night in the boozer.
Do The Bartman
Ice Ice Baby
my obsession with the charts started in the autumn of '91 - i think both of those were 1990. but yeah, same principle/
except i went to "playas de las americas" in tenerife.
played gta on the playstation
cashed in £172 winnings and treated all my housemates to a cab ride down to Virgin Oxford Street for the midnight album launch instore gig of Kula Shaker for their album K
the instore was free but I had to megablag (not quite sure how I managed it - there were 12 of us)
I think the whole thing cost around £50/60
Brilliant. I remember when we first got a tenner in our house. Auntie Kaz went out and got us all the ice creams of our choice. I had a Feast.
shame about the other two
but then again - 'Hey Dude' at midnight in between some CD racks with all the store lights on = priceless
One of you owned a barcode battler.
We never did, but I did see Goldie there once and he was swearing down a phone. Not quite as good.
I also remember being poised over the record button the first time D'You Know What I Mean was due to be played on the Evening Session.
this was in 2004 though
but only to the Oasis bit!
with my brother
at other kids on the playground
before deciding that Italian football was fucking shit.
replace that with sumo wrestling.
i meant the watching it loads bit.
That's how I remember it. Maybe I was watching a different program.
Followed up by countless arguments of:
'He says GOAL LAZIO'
'No he doesn't you dicknose'
Why would a programme about the whole league mention Lazio in its closing titles music? I used to have this argument a lot.
I wanted these so bad
the same songs in a row every week - something like:
Blind Melon - No Rain
Lemonheads - Mrs Robinson
Nirvana - In Bloom (they'd save teen spirit til last)
Pearl Jam - Alive
... and then half an hour later or so, it'd move to INDIE! so
Charlatans - The Only One I Know
Stone Roses - I Am The Resurrection (the version with the extended bit after the false ending, of course)
erm, i forget after this.
Friday night, walk into town getting drunk on cheap cider, go to Metros and listen to DJ Hywel play the same tunes in the same order while periodically pestering him to play some requests.
I think I Am The Resurrection normally lead into Loaded by Primal Scream.
Recorded my favourite Top of The Pops / Chart Show / Jools Holland / White Room performances and videos onto tapes and watch them for hours on end.
Rent cassette albums from the library.
Queue up outside HMV to buy Be Here Now. Bring it home to realise it's utter toss.
Watch the Solar eclipse. Realise it's utter toss.
wasn't allowed to stay up for all those music shows so had to vhs em. It didnt even matter if they were terrible, they just had to be late night. I once taped an entire Billy Joel gig
I'd rather not've known
and Noel Gallagher's chocolate-brown rolls royce was in the lane next to ours, with noel in the back.
I even wrote so on the front of the A4 lined-pad I was using at the time.
I spent an entire CDC lesson drawing band logos/names on a piece of A3 paper. Nailing the way 'Pearl Jam' is written on the sticker that came with the cassette edition of '10' was no easy task.
I recall a particularly enjoyable performance on Live and Kicking, where they performed it with the leprechauns
and slagged off everyone who only started watching it when it was on Channel 4.
jumped around to chumbawumba at the local youth centre whilst wearing those chunky addidas trackies that had the poppers down the side, a kickers jumper and some puma astro turfs.....all the while buzzing off my tits on cans of mountain dew and fancying a girl because she looked like gail porter.
did impressions of chris evans rolling on his side move from don't forget your toohbrush in class when mrs lang wasn't looking.
fancied the one with black curly hair and big brown eyes in bug juice. wished i was at one of the camps in bug juice.
enjoyed the musical arrangements of pugwall and his orange organics.
i wanted* to be there so much.
I forgot all about Bug Juice!!
i like the way this joke is lost in a sea of replies.
it didn't work.
we called them bangers. we used to take them on burnley games and make people jump.
I think thats the most 90s thing ANYONE can do
a trick on the skateboarding part of California Games on the Lynx.
Whilst wearing purple tracksuit bottoms.
say no more
and buying Beautiful Freak and the first Garbage album on the same glorious day.
I also have a distinct memory of playing Doom while listening to Cast. That's pretty 90s.
now I remember playing Quake and you could swap the cd-rom for a music cd and you'd get a different track for each level. I remember listening to Nice Guy Eddie by Sleeper and the Tom Jones comeback single where he went YYEEEAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH and sounded like an alien.
swapping out the Quake CD for the Sleeper album whilst playing Quake 2-player over serial link. A brilliantly unsuitable soundtrack...
That might have been part of the reason I did it actually
If you were any kind of music fan (and living in a 12 mile radius of Queensgate in Peterborough), you'ld have been listening to Jive Alive with Mick and Sarah Jane.
What kind of a name is Mick Jane?
That's where I first heard ALL the 'hits' (Neds, senseless things, carter, jesus jones, PWEI, Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, Skyscraper etc etc). Broadcast primetime on Peterborough local radio! I was pretty lucky.
Peterborough I miss you.
i remember my mate (god rest his soul) spending virtually his entire budget on klinsmann in the very first auction.
and so bid him into oblivion.
and when i say "with" i mean "on an adjacent table to"
it was a buffet (for a tv show cos i was so famous back then). cant remember what it was.
Pretend best friends
Scenario: Members of the public have to pretend they're best friends with terrorvision and out for a meal with them, in an attempt to win a date with the waitress. Everyone in Terrorvision is in on it, with the exception of Tony Wright, who gets increasingly annoyed.
it was for a japanese tv show, like top of the pops, but in japan, but probably on some cable channel that noone watched. i had to pretend to play a bass that wasnt mine.
it was very exciting.
so this part of the thread should be deleted.
We bid him into O-BLIV-EE-ON
DOO WOP WAH WAH OOH WAH
but I listened to them this morning.
it's still amazing
Other friends were in the same league. I need to remember more about this.
phoning people up..."hi its dan, i manage southampton in premier league 2...wanna sell jason mcateer?...how bout fowler?...macmanaman?...rob jones?...2 million...2.2 million? plus benali?..."
I used to love getting the post with that week's results. Big fat envelope with stats and weird news. Wish I knew what it was called.
i remember them saying, "oh your money must have fallen out of the envelope" nearly every week. fucktards.
i used to fold up the paper so i couldnt see the result at the bottom of the page. the excitement was unbearable at times.
Should've just sent stamps/
i'd probably pay to that all over again.
that rings a LOT of bells. and those bells are saying, "those cunts owe me £14.76"
£2.20 a week to play. Not sure if the still only accept cash/stamps.
in the internet age? and where i've just dowloaded champ manager for free?
i think so
i would say/sing #how bizarre, how bizarre / doo doo doo# back to them. i must admit that i still battle against the urge to do this.
but went for grunges
...and she looks like blossom!
Stayed awake until 3am to watch "Noisy Mothers" on TV
Went to Metal Head near Carnaby Street with a blank cassette tape because they'd put word out in a fanzine that they had rare Korn demos. There was a tape queue
Might possibly have sat down during "Sit Down" at one point...sorry.
Sent out countless demo TAPES
Prematurely attempted to read James Joyce while wearing a long sleeved Therapy T Shirt
Swapped a floppy disc of The Jolly Roger Cookbook for a tape of Napalm Death
Got drunk on tins outside The Bull and Gate.
Tippexed "Primus" on some Doc Martens
Went to Feet First sporting centre-parted curtains
Was this at the Cambridge Junction?
We used to go there!
they used to run a night at the Rivermead Centre in Reading during the festival too.
was at the Camden Palace, no?
Tooney Loons was at the Dome.
and sometimes like Bjork in Oh So Quiet.
But only on Thursday night for the youth club.
Me and my friend Adam went to the BBC building to be in the audience for Live & Kicking (or Going Live) and I got Paula Danziger's autograph.
I was on the waiting list for Live and Kicking tickets for about 18 months, then couldn't go because I had the flu. I cried, if I remember rightly.
It was a pretty unremarkable experience in general. You didn't miss out on much. Unless you think being within 20 feet of Bitty McLean is a big deal (WHICH IT IS!).
paula danziger <3
did she write everyone else's parent's said yes and thames doesn't rhyme with james?!?!?!
And I still do to this day.
she was in the Thunder fanclub and went backstage to meet them. When last at her parents' house we cleared out one of her old cupboards and found all her old fanclub merchandise, plus empty bottles of Becks signed by the band.
including a fleece worn by one of them (she won a live and kicking competition)
need, got, got, got, shiny, got, David Beasant, need.
and whacked-off like mad afterwards. As a consequence was duly forced to watch the parts about eastern european poo museums / odd bondage fashion that I didn't understand or like. But it was more than worth it for the porn. Teenagers have got it so easy these days with their widely available internet porn.
on the hope of seeing some tits on the James Whale show.
we stayed up until 4am whilst on a school trip in Cornwall to watch 'Pick of the Week' which a friend swore was a program about some crumpet chosen that week who would then get her baps out. It turned out to be a political programme.
Wasn't all bad as we watched Vamp beforehand.
Serruptitiously videtaping soft focus Channel 4 or 5 movies, waiting for your parents to go out, fast forwarding whilst squinting through the white fuzz to discover it's one of them without even any nipple in it. No joke.
I can still vividly recall my horror when my mum said to me, "Have you heard of a programme called Eurotrash? It's meant to be very trendy, I might start watching it too" D:
Pretty glad that particular plan of hers never came to fruition.
Good episode that one.
when i got over all the sex bits when i was older i mean. he was genuinely funny.
plus he had a totally hilarious facial expression.
RED SHOE DIARIES
it was like 'what does this have to do with the women?'
It's amazing we haven't heard about an entire generation of poo flinging sex weirdos who grew up watching the trash
ever enters the public realm.
I remember once they had a feature on old Dutch people (who else) who shaved themselves all over then went swimming. And then shaved each other more in the showers afterwards. I'm sure it all had a profound effect on shaping my psyche.
probably for the best like
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue_(computer_game)) while waiting to go to a crystal maze themed party.
wore Puma States with MASSIVE laces, stupendously baggy New Deal jeans and a Vision Streetwear tee shirt and rode an ATM Click slick deck with Gullwing Street Shadow 2 trucks and 42mm wheels.
Early 90's skateboarding was so lame. There was only so much you could take of home counties teens rolling up to the kerb at 2 mph whilst attempting to land a fakie hardflip and throw a gang sign simultaneously.
Wearing a gold Puma track suit top and drinking Breaker.
Or bunking off school to go and see Supergrass
....whilst wearing a Global Hypercolour t-shirt.
when we do a 00's list
made up a dance routine to 'Dr Jones' by Aqua
i can still remember it.
and I think we've got something incredible.
Flannel shirt, Britpop haircut, Escort RS Turbo. Nice!
whilst playing Scatch with my cousin.
Taped Bittersweet Symphony off the radio on its first play on steve lamacq show
spend pretty much a whole day at a mate house playing worms with 3 other players. with going home breaks for meals and then back again
taped Raw Power (became Noisy Mothers) and The Beat off the tv in the middle of the night
a couple of times i spent 10 quid of birthday money on reduced out of date goalkeeper tops out of the back of Shoot/Match. Also I used to buy 90 minutes because it had more words in
"Katie Hill" yet eh?
he had a ring and everything. It was a bit weird but nobody even looked up from their Fast Show Books when he announced it. I preferred Flipper Forrester so was even less bothered
234. Listening to Cornershop
liked and respected Jo Whiley
forgot to eat all day because i was too busy playing Championsip Manager
mourned the death of Jools and Jops
Hornets Starter jacket
Air Jordan 6's
and some pegged stonewash jeans.
Probably listening to Ugly Kid Joe on my $200 Aiwa discman at the same time.
You were probably too busy listening to Crowded House and OMC to notice that kind of thing.
YEAH I WENT THERE
by listening to it too much.
Got teased at school for not being able to do The Spice Girls dance routines.
fancied Richie from 5ive
Alanis Morisette, Meredith Brooks and Natalie Imbruglia.
REALLY faniced Brad from Neighbours.
Had a pair of those brown Kickers with leather laces for school and did that thing where you make a loop with the end of the lace and wind it round itself to make weird nodule things which stuck out at an agle from your foot.
miss those days :'(
and pretended to be that space precinct alien
and then wore them to the school disco
Did impressions of 'Eranu' and 'Uvavu' at school
Got given a pair of those pants that had buttons all the way up the leg by my mate's mum, didn't wear them because they had four stripes
and going "WOW!"
Buying "Torn" as my first ever single. Later, getting into Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park.
Oh, the ages of 3-13. What a time to be alive!
i'm not usually one for soggy 90's nostalgia....reminds me of shit social network things...etc......'HANDS UP WHO SAW SISTER SISTERZ...SO 90'S!!!...WHAT ELSE WOZ THER...!!11!!'.....'JOIN THIS GROUP IF YOUR A 90'S CHILD'......etc etc etc
but this thread is at least an 7.8.... good work people. good work.
wore a big o'neil fleece and beige combats for about four years straight.
collected those spice girls photo's to an appaling extent.
listened to far too much lighthouse family.
i probs drank a lot of HOOCH at all 3 dates too.
ata primary school disco - danced with a member of the opposite sex to My Heart Will Go On by putting carefully your hand on her shoulder and swaying from side to side
Used candyfloss lipbalm and BROWN lipsticks. Sigh.
Thought that Tab Clear was amazing with all it's see-through abilities. What's that, dad? So's lemonade? Yeah, of course it is, whatever you say. I'll stick with my space age drink thanks.
especially the ones with a smell, remember the rumours of one that smelt of dog poo ? weird times...
watching Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
I got told I was most like Chandler out of Friends.
and did knee slides at school discos to what is love by haddaway
and played with pogs and pokemon cards - I had a shiny metal pog, therefore I was the dogs bollocks of my fellow pog playing friends
and wished I some of those lighty up trainers
Put my collar up like cantona did
Yeah be born
Thought that kevin gallen was one of the best players
foul someone on fifa 94 then run away from the ref
complete the 1998-1999, premier league sticker album
now that I think about it coolio on the kenan and kel intro was my first introduction to rap music. That is briliant.
And to answer zomby's question of where I was in 92, I'd just about moved on to solid foods
started about 50 threads on fidonet whilst pissed on hoopers hooch.
then watched x-files.
The Mary Whitehouse Experience was funny.
Newman and Baddiel and I'll believe you. And find anyone that will admit seeing them live at Wembley - pfft! Comedians doing huge shows? Never take off y'know...
most 90's thing I remember is rushing home from school in time to see DEFII and Dance Energy with Normski.
I also sewed tartan into the holes in my jeans (authentic holes from skateboarding) to go to the sunday of Reading 92, I didn't have any "grungy" checked shirts to cut up!
Does that mean you saw Nirvana?
i was on holiday in Tenerife and I saw Louise "baby shaker" Woodward.
purely for the neverending hilarity of the insane amount of sponsors and inexplicably poor sound engineering.
euro 96 is sponsored by SKODA, SNICKERS, BECKS, TIRES, GERMAN COMPANY, JAPANESE ELECTRONICS COMPANY, AND...CARLSBERG
then the audio between dubbed international adverts would fluctuate so much i thought my ears were dying.
whilst wearing really baggy jumpers and purple jeans.
Thought Gillian Anderson was really fit
Had my hair cut like Gazza's circa 1991 FA Cup final, got in loads of trouble at school as a result
Watched that looped Channel 5 preview repeatedly when unable to sleep, and saw the opening of Ch 5 with that execrable Spice Girls song written especially for it
Stayed up on a Friday night to watch Beavis & Butthead
Thought MTV was really cool
Bought newly released CDs for £16
Went into Our Price to listen to Shine compilations on those giant uncomfortable demo post headphones with Chris Evans' voice chastising you if you pressed the wrong buttons
Collected Star Wars Tazos from bags of crisps
when Mel C said "Take it away Bryan"
at brixton academy whilst wearing combat trousers and nipping round the corner to Wimpy to use their toilets every now and then. My Vitriol supported. people drank babycham in public. THE 90S
this may have also happened in the early 00's, which makes it even worse.
to make a mixtape almost entirely comprising Carter USM, Ned's Atomic Dustbin and Mega City 4.
