I keep seeing Claire and Jacky, Piers, Matt Wilson and occasionally
Rupert. Matt has a two-year-old kid.

He hangs out in another newsgroup, the name of which I've forgotten as
I read a lot of newsgroups, so he's still alive and kicking.
Take a nap, it saves lives.
Living in rural Oxfordshire and still know how to party last I heard.
Still in same email addresses should you wish to contact.
What about Juppy?

Hey LX! You once sent me a mixtape, years and years ago, probably around
the time we were organising the PLUR party. It was excellent!
Blimey. I thought having children was a bit of a pact with the devil of
ordinary society :)
I still wonder about Juppy too. Was he the disabled one in a wheelchair,
or am I getting him mixed up with someone else? Anyway, the person I'm
trying to think of was a lovely bloke, and I wonder what he's up to

Talking about mix tapes, I've got one off Orange Peel, which still gets the
occasional run out.
Eeeh...and I've still got all my teeth. Er, actually, that's not true.
But I am wearing slippers.

I had one off Dark Angel. It was brilliant but I've somehow mislaid it
Be careful what you ask for! I dunno if Barclay's also about to pop up,
but if not then I used to be an official distributor for him :-) Mail me
your postal address and I'm sure he won't mind if I do you another one -
I gave him the masters back a little while ago, but (if I can find them
after four house moves) I've got good quality copies I can dupe.
Failing that there's always the ones in the car but they're getting a
bit faint now due to lots of playing :)
Ratty's in a secret location but if you read squ*tj**c* you might be
able to work out his current handle from posting styles !
I get occasional updates about Hedgie via hatty - we had a good night
out with him here in Nottingham (quite a while ago now admittedly!),
but last I heard he moved to Brummagen and settled down.

Coo! Could you digitise onto CD media? If so that'd be quite nice to
have. Thanks. I'll fire off an private e-mail to you.
I'm still around - from 2002 to early 2006 worked in a place where Usenet
was blocked and have only recently been back on there. (You got SJ and
Partyvibe mixed up BTW, a forgiveable mistake at the moment as a lot of SJ
users have been on recently since their server was playing up)
I can only read Usenet when within range of my BT connection at the moment
(I know I can get other NNTP servers but I only read umr, uk.rec.cycling and
uk.rec.sheds so can't be arsed to pay for a feed!)

Don't know! I bet she chose a very strange name though if she did. :-)
Ding-a-ling or something. :-))
Last I heard was she was doing "stage shows" at Atomic Energy parties, but
that was well over a year ago. But I've had a look at
http://www.atomicenergy.co.uk and can't see her listed as one of the
residents any more.
In fact, looking back at their old flyers, the last one to mention her was
3 July 2004
he is? i mean, she is? ;)
> still@Purple Turtle or whatever it's called these days?
don't think so but she's keeping busy - whenever i get flyered for
hardhouse clubs her name always crops up a few times.
> >still trade sporadic emails with him but we haven't met up for a year

> Is he burnt out? No more happy hardcore?
i think he goes to house clubs occasionally but my more recent attempts
via email to get him to join me raving have failed. he is often
overseas though which is a fair excuse. :)
btw the hardcore scene dropped the "happy" bit some years ago, marking
a definite change for the worse! (imho)

It was just something I'd heard from someone in the scene ages ago.
Wonder if she'd log on and scotch that?
His demon account appears to still be active so I've just sent him an
email telling him about this thread and asking how he is.

I certainly will have it somewhere, but it was on cassette and I haven't
used cassettes for a few years now, I'm not even sure where I keep them
all. I'd have to look in the attic I think.
Went back to the UK Garage (then grime) scene and never looked back. I
saw him at Eskimo Dance early this year. Someone else told me he's been
stabbed or shot but that's unconfirmed.

Obviously he must be, if there's been no reports of his death!
Not sure if anyone misses me but have fond memories of meeting a number
of you, most notably at PLUR and PLUR II. Anyway hi to Tristan, Nick L
and anyone else who ever saw me post on UMR back in the day. I also had
a little post Evil Mark II's bizarre blog the other day.
I'm still in Thailand, I've now got a daughter who's nearly a year old,
and I'm still partial to the odd slice of Acid Tekno, and Traaaance,
but rarely get on a dancefloor these days...in fact I haven't for about
I'm now running a sucessful Teaching in Thailand forum

sounds pretty cool, mate, and congrats on the daughter thing! :) good
to hear from ya again.
PS is anyone still in contact with Hedgie? Nick?!
Last time I bumped into you was at Glastonbury. I think you'd gone for a
piss beside the dragon (right beside my tent, LOL!)
Which one was that? 1999? 2000?
> Bart wrote:

What was his real name? Perhaps an Internet search will show something up,
I haven't seen him since that UMR trip to Amsterdam which *ting* organised,
where we saw Hedgehog and Niall/Orange Peel and a couple of others play in
Oh, we were talking about *ting* the other day - well a friend let me know
she's at Freeformation next month, 23 June to be exact, it'll be the last
free event at Hidden in Vauxhall, and Zoe'll be doing a special back-to-
back hard dance set with Kevin Energy. I'll be there. :-)
I'm not going to mention his name since he never does online but if
it's any comfort, a google search doesn't turn up any stories about
stabbings or shootings.

Ooo no, go to Shamania, it's a one-off! There'll be plenty more Hiddens
with *ting* and Kevin Energy no doubt, this is simply the last "free" one!
Shamania sounds an absolute hoot!! And going to a festival when it's in its
infancy is something very special. I still regret never going to the first
Big Chill when all my mates went!

Know how to, just don't seem to get around to it much. :)

What about Rob Smith? I heard a rumour he'd become a people trafficker
in Central America.
LOLZ I never knew there were so many badman on this board, people
traffickers, strippers, ppl getting shot at raves haha, No, seriously
Hedge is OK, yeah a few bad things have happened to him recently and
yeah some of them have left him scarred but that's life in the endz
innit, it's his own fault in many wayz but I u didn't hear me say that
get me? :-) I wouldn't normally post to a board like this as I have no
interest in these clubs u guys talk about (Hedge once mentioned sumfing
about sum internet rave he was involved in years back, which is how I
found out about here and why I asked about him on here ages ago), we
met at a mixed UKG/jungle rave years bak and still meet up regular, dat
manz big get me. Anywayz he's been ill alot since 2004, doesn't get out
as much as he's like 2 because of dat but is involved in the grime
scene and old skool garage scene and like a lot of women he's nothing
but trouble! haha! think he flipped a bit when he dumped one of his gal
dem a coupla years bak, still talks about her but u don't want 2 get
with Hedge these days girls trust me, I saw him throw one gal out of
his car last year when he was done!! maybe that's why he got done over
haha, no all jokes aside I kno what it was all about, but it's probably
best I don't say nothing because there will were reprisals.
He's just got a new fone after losing it a while back which is why it's
taken a while 2 get in touch. He says he won't never post here again as
he's embarassed about the past and the tings he did when with u lot and
wants 2 put it behind him, he's much happier now he's gon back 2 his
musical roots and anywayz he's not called Hedge now either but I'm not
telling u what he's called hahah anywayz respect yeah I'm gone.
Was going to buy tickets and noticed that the camp site is only
available until 8am Sunday morning which seems like the time to go to
bed not have got up and gone home. They seem very stuffy about people in
living vehicles too and I just got a big shiny new (well new to me)one
to play in this summer.
Following up myself just tried to contact them to ask about the above
and the contact form on their webpage doesn't work anyone got an email
address for them?
I can't see on their website that you have to leave campsite at 8 a.m. on
In fact, you can stay on after Monday, if you pay the landowner, it
"Visitors must leave the site by 12 noon on Monday 24th July; unless they
wish to pay the Landowner, Ł5 per night for additional camping."
> they wish to pay the Landowner, £5 per night for additional camping."
OK I've found the bit where they talk about the site only being open
until 8 a.m. but it completely contradicts the bit about staying on
after Monday, so very strange.
Looks as though they won't be too bothered.
Also looks as though camper vans under 3.5 tonnes are allowed as long as
you clear it first.

I'm sure there's joke about the nature of "marriage" to be made here but
I'm far too tired to think of it.
When you go to buy a ticket you have to agree to leave by Sunday morning
as part of the terms and conditions. Call me cynical but rather imagine
it'll be more like farmer comes round collecting cash from those too
munted to move than not too bothered.
> Also looks as though camper vans under 3.5 tonnes are allowed as long as

Which was the problem :( Mine isn't less than 3.5 tonnes. Trying to use
their web contact form to clear it anyway then failed.
at least your dictionary was spared this time. :)
seriously though, i don't see Ting very often but it's probably at
least every 9 months or so, and she didn't mention any Tinglets when we
were texting a few weeks back.
presumably they'll be renaming Freeformation as "Formation" then. ;)
...music policy in one room will still be Freeform (the genre formerly
known as Trancecore) and Hardcore though, of course.
don't forget to prebook your place(s) well in advance, anyone that's
going, and expect it to be rammed.

I must have misheard, or it was a false rumour! I did actually meet
Ting once at a mate's party a long time ago. Spun some pretty fucking

am still into my lighting, and will be doing the Orgin Stage and Sancho

but they sound like nice enough people to work with.
I think I may stay and see what happens to umr if I can.
