    Government Confidential Files Released Nearly Thirty Years After Acid House
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Wayne Anthony deep dives the declassified Acid House files released by the National Archives in 2016. Contrary to popular belief the Tory government headed by Margaret Thatcher appear more concerned with noise pollution than health and safety. Confidential memos even state that ‘drugs are not the main issue’ MP Carolyn Sinclair. This may come as a surprise to most considering all the bad press until this point. The government were also considering making ‘noise’ a criminal offence with heavy penalties for the prosecuted. The declassified files outline various methods of dealing with Acid House ‘organisers’ , venue owners and anyone remotely connected to Acid House parties.

    Acid House Trashed by All News Outlets 1989 Onwards
    ---------------------------------------------------

    In the second part of Wayne Anthony’s analysis of news stories published by media outlets between 1989 and 1990. Hundreds of news articles are printed during this period. The sensationalised headlines were targeting parents and voters. The aim is to change the law, further restricting the movement of people. The news stories were instrumental in engineering fear among parents. The articles highlighted key areas they wanted to change but needed the full backing of the general public to make it happen. Wayne Anthony shares his personal commentary on each article featured in the video.

    *Acid House Trashed by All News Outlets 1988 - 1990*

    In this podcast Wayne Anthony deep dives some newspaper articles of 1988, highlighting the propaganda surrounding Acid House. Sensationalised media stories produced hundreds of Acid House headlines over a period of two years. Clickbait wasn’t a term back then but newspapers and TV programs were manufacturing clickbait at an alarming rate. Fake news stories were firing up Middle Englanders against youth culture. They were instrumental in bringing the culture into every household in the country. Saatchi & Saatchi couldn’t have designed a better marketing campaign. News reports were mostly negative and pushed certain themes. The end game is changing the law to restrict the movement of people and make ‘noise’ an actual crime with penalties enforced by law.

    *The British Keyboard Wizard of Acid House | Adamski*

    Adam was destined for a life in the arts. Influenced by the likes of Malcolm Maclaren and the DIY culture of punk. Adam was making music with his brother on cheap recorders, when others were out playing cowboys and Indians. A firm favourite of John Peel, Adam set his sights on a career in the music industry. Influenced by Acid House, Adamski was born in 1989. Everyone booked him to play at their events, the journey took him around the country. The album Live and Direct featured a series of instrumentals produced at home in his bedsit. Singles such as NRG charted and Adamski appeared on Top of the Pops. This wouldn’t be his last appearance on Britain’s top music show. Adamski teamed up with Seal for the Number One track Killer. Adamski was the British poster-boy of Acid House who continues to produce music to this very day. Recently recorded with Boy George, Adrian Sherwood and a host of talented recording artistes.
