The third in John Broadley's sequence of prints that explore our musical heritage recalls the rave scene of the late 1980s and early 90's.
Partially inspired by music holiday-makers heard in the Balearics on holidays, thousands of people gathered each weekend at secret locations across the UK to dance, wild-eyed, to this new twist on electronic music. While you certainly had to be ‘in the know’ to hook up with any like-minded individuals, the enduring sounds, images and feelings remain with those lucky few to this day, memories of a glimpse of a better world.
Whether you call it the second summer of love or just a good time, the (illegal) rave scene left an indelible mark on both our culture and minds.
