    Scooter Boys were again not mods, they dressed in army combats, flight jacket and docs maybe had flat tops or quiffs they also either put more extravagant paintings on their scooters or chopped them like big bikes for a laugh.
    They even to this day have different rallies , with a more varied musical taste available other than soul, Motown or the who and the likes playing, anything from Bad manners, Spear of Destiny, King Kurt and Tenpole Tuder basically it was not up it's own arse like the mod scene was.
    Thanks for that, honestly never heard of that subset before. When I lived oop north & in the midlands it was all faux mods who rode scooters - was it a southern thing that stayed where it started?

      None of the above - always preferred to "plough my own furrow", so to speak

      No a lot of the northern towns had scooter clubs, and most of the rallies were actually up Norf like Morecombe, Southport, Skegness etc

      I was in a several scooter clubs back in the mid/late 80s in Wigan, Stockport and Ormskirk we would have upwards to 30-40 members paying subs and going off on jollies causing mayhem. We did not like the mods, and they in turn did not like us *******ising the scooters and scene so they split.

      Disappointing absence of 'Loner' option which in truth would have and does continue to apply to most on here.

      None really. I was just a kid who liked sport and got on with things.

      None, but I loved the music of the hippie era/Summer of Love 1967.
      I was 19 then; blimey 50 years have past and I still love the music.

      Fair enough by the late 1980's I was pushing thirty and didn't really pay attention to any of this stuff!

      WTF

      900+ BPM
      100k BPM

      Thanks I though "Gabba"/Hardcore was ridiculous this is bizarre!!!!
      It's a bit much for me.
      I tend to go for faster hardcore but I stop finding it enjoyable once it goes beyond the 250bpm mark.
      Although the harder the kick the better.
      Smells like fish, tastes like chicken.

      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 ALL of this though moved into Drum and Bass and House after that hardcore scene. Was a big time raver during my A-level years and early uni.
