An ad from October 1988 inviting you along to De Stihl's acid night.
This was at the height of the rave scene, with acid house being a particularly intoxicating brew of dance beats & synth patterns.
It wasn't just great music to dance to, it was also great to cycle to.
I remember being out on my bike regularly during this era and would be plugged into my Walkman with acid house pounding in my ears. It could be so mesmerizing, I often ended up going much further than I had planned without realising because I was so immersed in it.
I just kept going and going and going.
I could have won the Tour De France on that stuff!!
I'm still a bit like that today with Chicago Footwork tracks!
