Tottenham Court Road,

London, July 1988

I’d heard that a street party might happen

after [London club night] The Trip at the

Astoria closed at 3am. So I was thrilled when

this car pulled up with its speakers blaring,

and a few hundred people were suddenly

jumping around, dancing in the street and

on top of the bus shelter, screaming “Street

party!” and “Acieed”. We were right outside

the Dominion Theatre in the heart of London,

causing a party roadblock. The police seemed

to regard it as joie de vivre rather than as

a serious nuisance, but the revellers were

already making their way into a multi-storey

car park below the YMCA, which must have

been pretty freaky for the hapless people

who came to collect their Porsche and found

it surrounded by screaming ravers.
