For some reason I kept getting these around 1992:
I don't think I actually followed it through and went, or maybe I did and just wasn't aware of it :)
Anyone with more info please give them to us in the comments.

Anti Rave Gig 01-02-1992, squatted bank Mile End Road, Whitechapel

Held in a squatted bank in whitechapel,

this was busted quite violently by police. One of several parties/gigs in squatted venues which were busted in typical shows of heavy handed police approach around that time

posters on Brixton railway bridge.

I'm still wondering who had put those up there:

They stayed for quite a while, on the railway bridge right outside Brxton tube station, sometime around 1989/1990

Brixton Dole House

Before it became known as Cool Tan (the sequel...) it was known simply as it's formal occupational hazard.

 Flyer for the opening night

The Break Inn - 1991

Just at the start of Blackfriar's Bridge Road by St George Circus, this squatted pub was in the middle of the wasteland/wasteground that behind the facade of the old London Eye Hospital.

Many a fine night of excess was enjoyed by those who managed to find their way there.

Hell House Squat

On the borough road just off St George Circus near the Elephant and Castle.
The first party/gig there was on New Years Eve 1990 the organisation of which started at 7pm on that day after we'd been informed that the Bus Garage in Camberwell was being busted and evicted and was surrounded by police. It probably wasn't the snazziest of dos, but it went on, duly before midnight with bands and DJs going on through the night and into the wee hours of 1991.

more gig and parties ensued, one of which was rioted by the police.

Gigs at The Canterbury Arms

This would have been 1993 or 1994, I'd driven RDF from Edimburgh to Milton Keynes then driven home. Put my feet up for about 3 & a half minute before going to pick up the P.A. from the archduke Charles taking it to the pub, playing with my band then back to Milton Keynes to pick up RDF, to find out Chris had set sails already and my money was a wee bit short... all in all a pretty long after I'd dropped RDf back and had to go recollect the P.A.
More flyers after the jump:

Lady Flo 1992 1993

Here is a flyer from Lady Flo in Deptford/New Cross:

I cannot quite remember whether that was 1992 or 1993.
more flyers:

The Dutch House Free Festival, Eltham 1992

One afternoon free festival just at the start of a weird bit of nearly dual carriageway opposite a large pub called the Dutch House in Eltham. Summer of 1992.
The acid was very nice.

lap of luxury

Obviously living it up in the lap of luxury in the old Black Women Centre after it had been squatted on the corner of Stockwell road and Stockwell Green, a 15 seconds walk from the Old Queens Head and all its punk and hardcore gigs.

Bingo Bomb Squat, Brixton 1990

The ever so short lived Bingo Bomb squat in Brixton, it lasted all of about 4 hours after the "Official" opening before being illegally evicted by the police, a lot of the people inside at the time were on bail after the Trafalgar square poll tax riot and getting arrested was therefore not an option for them and the police were certainly not listening to any "you know that what you are doing is illegal" talk that particular day, I'm still unsure why this particular squat got this particular treatment, maybe because it was right in the centre of Brixton (opposite Sub-station just behind red records) it had a massive banner hanging out and people had been handing out tracts to the crowd of Saturday shoppers.

Exodus Festival-Rave 1999

late August or early September 1999, by the side of a motorway IIRC

Party 8th february 1992

Flyer Front:
Flyer back:

Flyers for the last ever party at The Night School: the one that never happened.
It got busted very early on in the evening.
In the chaos that ensued someone forgot to replace the fuse we'd borrowed from the (still active) school next door.
Therefore the electricity supply was promptly cut off on the following Monday morning ensuring no more events took place after that. But a good laugh was had that afternoon when they searched my room.

Now I can't quite remember if it was on the intervening Sunday that the local bunch of up to no good kids tried to set the building on fire or whether that had happened the week before, if anyone can enlighten me that'd be great.

Party 12th September 1992

I'm not even sure whether I made it to that or not...
