I really regret having never gone to the Asylum. Meant to so many times but we always ended up in the Temple of Sound. I loved that place. In the early days when they brought around trays of fruit and Johnny Moy would be starting out the night with tracks like Bug Powder Dust and the remix of Kosmos by Paul Weller (what was that mix again?). Then when it started to kick in on would come Green Velvet - Flash and the place would explode. The weeks standing for nearly an hour in the queue waiting for the likes of Billy Nasty and Fabio Paras to play. Such memories!
I met my now wife there nearly 10 years ago (we also have an eight month old daughter), we just got married last week in Cyprus and during our honeymoon in the second week we drove to Ayia Napa and spent the night. Decided for old times sake to wander into a club. Went to a place called the Castle and about 30 minutes after we got there we tried the local things again for old times sake. All I can say is they were bloody good and actually really reminded me of some of my first encounters! Club didnt even nearly compare though.
Good stuff felixdhc!
I never made through the doors of the Asylum either but have been to the Temple of Sound of quite a number of occasions.
I am a bit like yourself. I met my wife in the Globe one Sunday after a big night. We started chatting (I was still flying) and agreed to go on a date.
Shortly after she became pregnant. She was only on a years working visa so I decided that I would get a permanent visa to go to Australia. We had our second daughter 5 months ago and I haven't been back to the ol' sod in 5 years or haven't touched X since.
Next time I go back to Dublin I should get my brother to put on an event playing all those old house / techno tracks from his nights in the Ormond Multi Media Centre, Shaft, Purple Onion and other places. He has been in San Francisco for the past 8 yrs but is back in Dublin now.
I should really set up some fund to get a homesick lad back for his meds and a dose of doof doof...
Ha - jesus this is mad. I just put a search in on Google to see if anything was out there about the best club ever SIDES and look what I got - A bunch of headcases that were there in the day. Seems like some of you literally have it down to a t.
I used to go to SIDES in 1992 - on and was the best time of my life. Used to go to The Olympic then down to SIDES and then on to the Asylum or sometimes G1's. Anybody remember that place (up over the ice skating place in Phibsboro)? The good old days or maybe the bad. I really think I came out the other side in good shape as alot of people I know died from drugs etc.
Anyway - I'm still raving and having a good time at the minute. Current place of wondering is The Pod which is rockin' at the minute with the POGO/Bodytonic crowd.
If anybody is interested I have all the tapes Mick Walsh & Pat Hyland made from Sides/Gavity. Sound is ****e though but there you go.
As for Mick Walsh - he is doing some nights here and there. He is playing Austria next month aswell!!
As for growing up and having kids ect...it has to be done but you can still have a good time in the process and get out for a good dance!!!
RAVE ON PEOPLE!!!!
Reckon I have the biggest collection of flyers from the early 90's too. Anybody have a ticket for the rave in the castle in 1991?!? Thought not!
I was there in all my glory!! Did you go to the rave down at Dolymount Beach afterwards? Got down there and there was no music!! Still didn't stop the headcases dancing to no music!!
crazy, its goood to read about this stuff.
warren k is my bro!
i remember him years ago with mick walsh, N R GEX!!
i have some of my bro's latest stuff in anybody is interested... its more electro than the stuff he did years ago, but its good all the same.
Any chance you can find out a track listing from an old tape he did? It was and still is one of my favourite old mixes. It was from around '94 or '95 and had these tracks on it: (these are random, not in this order on the mix)
Eat Static - Lost in Time
Finitribe - Brand New (Sourmash Mix)
Pump Panel - Ego Acid (floatation mix) - this was the last track on the mix
Boomerang - Damn Tuff EP (think it was the track, Inner Space from the B Side - cant go checking now as records in a mess at the moment!)
Emmanuel Top - Acid Phase
Phax Feat Steve Bug - Tritop Remix
Infinity Project - Stimuli
These are the only tracks I got names of over the years and picked up on vinyl. Would love to know the rest! Would also be interested in hearing his new stuff.
I heard Warren's track he done there the year before last the 'Bo Selecta' tune.......I thought it was deadly. Not sure what he done with it after that.
Give you a laugh.....two fellas I know got NR:GEX and a Dove tattooed on their arms in 1993. We used to all hang around with Mick, Pat, Warren, Jay Carey & Caf. Only one of the tattooed is alive now I wonder if he got it covered up or left it!
