BOSS Mag and Waxx call on you to remember the spirit of 88. Dole queues getting bigger, the Conservatives in power and class war on the streets.

But at the same time, shining out of the gloom, came the birth of Acid House, a significant cultural movement at the end of the 20th Century.

Before corporate clubbing in faceless venues with bland promoters always looking at the bottom line, this was community, creativity and spirit.

Now the Tories are back and the number of unemployed is rising again. But thankfully for those of you too young to remember the first time round or those of you who should know better but don’t, Boss Mag, Waxx and Boss Events are bringing back the music too.

With Phuture Liverpool – on 10th December they will take over a disused warehouse in the Baltic District of Liverpool City Centre and bring together the old and the new to celebrate the best of Acid House.

They do not come much more legendary than Andy Carroll. He was the original innovator who introduced the hungry people of Liverpool to Acid House way back in 1987 in the State Ballroom. He went onto become a resident with Quadrant Park, Cream.

He has played to well over a million people in clubs from Ibiza to Chicago, Miami to Melbourne. Andy has become synonymous with all that is great about House music. He will be playing a mammoth set from the State of 88.

Andy will be joined by his modern contemporary in the shape of James Rand. Despite his tender age, James is resident at Chibuku. He is well known in these parts for tearing it up to a receptive Liverpool crowd.

Phuture Liverpool will also present a live set from the amazing Tea Street Band. They are causing a minor riot every time they play. A bastard mutilation that combines 808 State with Doves. A strange and heady concoction that is making their ever growing fanbase keep coming back for more. This will be the official launch party for their debut 12” record.

Expect the unexpected. This will be a hedonistic adventure to remember.
