Twenty Years Since The Second Summer of Lurve

Can it really be 2 whole decades ago that love was in the air for the second time? Those days when the world went dayglo, Lucozade stopped being a sick kid’s bedside prop and the Sun ran regular headlines on the “evils of ecstacy”?

A post here by lil’ ol me on Comment is Free makes the point that rave is surely establishment fodder/insitutionalised now that it has its own season on Radio 2 and argues that all we need is an MP or two to ‘fess up to having popped a few e’s in their youth for it to truly be a resident of Respectable Street. Comments welcome here or there.
