You growed in Newcastle. Many sources mentioned that you're inspired by the 90s graffiti scene. And you said that you grew among the rave and skate scene. Back in those days, can you remember some specials about Newcastles Graffiti and rave scene? Things / cases that mostly impressed and influenced you.
Yeah I started writing early 80's so it was not inspiration... it was my life, kinda from the second my friend showed me Graf, it fascinated me instantly and I guess has directed my life, which is quite a mad thing to be able to say. Newcastle scene was very healthy, there was a bunch of Graf existing before Subway Art, and there was a healthy Break scene too. This was early 80's, of course it grew more and kinda Boomed in the late 80's early 90's, I remember all of it, and everyone involved haha! Like any Graf scene there was good squad and bad.
Newcastle had a good rave scene too, it had grown out of acid house and a bunch of people doing illegal parties late 80's. Then in early 90's there was regular Raves. The best being Rezerection, I did my first Pill (a White Dove) aged 15 at Rezerection 4 and saw Altern8 and LFO. EVERYONE from Newcastle scene was there that night, all buzzing, it was a good vibe. LFO sat crossed legged on stage just with the synths infront of them
