    Definitely rave.
    Started listening to jungle techno when I was about 11, old tapes of Fantazia, Dreamscape, Fusion, World Dance etc. Jungle techno gave birth to jungle, breakbeat, happy hardcore, hardcore etc, I can't imagine even now I'm coming up to 40 that I will ever listen to anything other than hardcore and a bit of drum n bass.
    Used to go to Stern's, travelled all over the country with mates and sometimes my brother's to attend raves.
    Helter Skelter was always my place to be though, I've always preferred the harder side of music so the Technodrome at the Sanctuary in Milton Keynes is where I spent most of my youth.
    Pretty much my first ever music purchase was an 8 pack of tapes from the Edge (formerly the Eclipse) in Coventry

    Back then it was really i suppose before D&B was a genre of its own it was really either dark hardcore or happy hardcore (which was breaks as we know before happy hardcore became its own genre and was pretty much 180 BPM and cheesy as - slower Gabba if you like)

    The pack if IIRC contained (some of them the mixing I could and did do better)

    Jumping Jack Frost
    Grooverider
    Slipmatt
    Top Buzz
    Fabio
    Ratpack

    And I cant remember the other 2 could have been a six pack

    God I miss my tapes the joy of buying those mix packs from Obsession, Fantazia.... Loved the artwork on them too they were the pride of place next to my awai tape deck and collected so many fliers. Moved on to D&B DJing and partying wise and got quite into Dubstep for a while before retiring from parties and festivals

    Happy messy days

      Had a motorbike and leather jacket at 20 and its the same 37 years later so I have put down biker.

      Never thought myself as part of any youth subculture, if you ride a bike you are a biker and if you don't wear a leather jacket (and leather jeans as I eventually did) you are going into skin graft territory!

      Also I never did the heavy metal thing we are supposed to be associated with and my musical tastes vary from ambient through blues, classical, krautrock, minimalism and ending up with a bit of prog and a lot of rock...

      None of the above. I don't like putting labels on things and I like bits of lots of things.
      I agree but I wasn't asking you to label yourself just whether you identified with any of those subcultures for example having a greater appreciation of the music most associated with it. I personally wouldn't put myself in any one category as my tastes have always been very eclectic and diverse so I would struggle to pick one over some of the others. However alrhough not classifying myself as any of the above I could say I identified with some of them, some of which are in total conflict and some of which were just before my time. The ones I would pick if any would be Punk, Goth (early goth Bauhaus era) and even a bit of hippie which was just before my time but I've always liked the music associated with it. I have never classed myself as any of these but can identify with them.

      Oh yeah, Indie, bit of an oversight to omit that one

      As usual Paychobilly is ignored or not recognised as a credible genre.

      That's the way we like it, also scooter boy is not in there.

      Both had massive underground followers in the 80s.

      I'm surprised there are so many "Casuals" .....I didn't know what that meant to googled it
      "The casual subculture is a subsection of association football culture that is typified by football hooliganism and the wearing of expensive designer clothing (known as "clobber")"
      I would have thought that was more Millwall that us?!?!?
      Millwall had the dodgy fake stuff FFS!

      But wouldn't "Paychobilly" come under the subculture of Rockabilly being a subculture within that subculture. If I'd listed the subcultures within the subcultures the list would have been too exhaustive. I didn't just omit Paychobilly I also omitted Psychobilly both of which I presume would come under the Rockabilly banner. If I am wrong I apologise. To be honest I wasn't even aware of Paychobilly. When did that emerge? Is it a subculture of psychobilly who are also upwardly mobile professionals?

      If the criteria is a greater appreciation of the music, then should there be reference to TwoTone/Ska, New Wave, Pub Rock

      My tastes are wide and cover many areas, so wouldn't want to be put in a box
