Reading Festival 1991

Even though many won’t admit it, a lot of clubbers and ravers started out as Indie kids.   There are actually quite a few similarities between the two scenes

  1. Both started out as small and outside the mainstream
  2. Both went mainstream in a big way around 1991
  3. Both have stayed around in one form or another
  4. A gig can be like a club – hot, sweaty, hands in the air, people dedicated to the cause

More example tracks of the period will be added, and post your own, but these few sum up the era

Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit
