Such consistent assumption of the role of the reactionary does little to disabuse the bourgeoisie of its ingrown stereotypes, Ivan.

But you probably knew that.

Or Stakker Humanoid's 1989 effort "Humanoid", or Bassomatic's "Fascinating Rhythm".

That probably narrows down my age somewhat.

Even if they didn't, I heard they released a new album under a pseudonym. Anyone know if that's true, what it's called and if it's any good?

was the gentleman in Stakker Humanoid, and also part of FSOL.

I suspect he/they has released a fair bit of stuff under various names (and some recent remixes - e.g., FSOL's "Papua New Guinea"); maybe some up-to-date kiddies can point you in the right direction.

The Shamen. Perhaps not the most outright house/rave group, but certainly one of the most controversial. Who can forget Ebeneezer Goode, the rave anthem that put the word 'Ecstasy' on every parent's tongue and made them swallow? -- because it isn't

I remember the Shamen when they were a jangly guitar band. I've got the Christopher Mayhew Says single at home. I've also got Aphex Twin's Didgeridoo. He keeps asking for it back, but I pretend I'm out.
A couple of me fave rave tunes are: Jaydee; Plastic Dreams, Joey Beltram; Energy Flash, Orbital's Chime, & Underworld's Cowgirl - blinding!!

RGIT Union, or posh wanky Aberdeen Uni Union?

I engineered for a band that played in Drummonds once, called Symbiosis. An ironic name, because they fell out seriously after their first and only gig, and would only speak to each other through me for about 6 months after. They were warming up for a band called The Warmth, who nicked all our decent leads, the bastards.

The Works used to be a bike pub, didn't it? It was called something else then but the name escapes me.

Oh, and let's not forget Simpsons, now the Triple Kirks. So many pubs, so many partial memories...
