Andrew "Myself and two of my best pals who I grew up with. We were massively into the dance and rave scene right from the very start. Great memories and times spent travelling around the North to the popular clubs back then. We spent the entire week looking forward to the weekend and deciding where to go - always wanted to be in three places at once as there was so much going on. Great times being young during a fantastic scene. This was taken enroute to the Pleasuredrome in Farnworth, Bolton, 1991."
