Hello

Hi

I got into the habit of collecting flyers after raves in 1990 in Manchester. This continued through my raving days in Manchester the Midlands and then on to London in the late 90's. Even after I stopped raving used to collect them from record shops around Central London I seem to have collected about at a very rough estimate about 10,000 flyers and will this winter try and get them into some sort of order.

Hopefully I can document a few oddities this winter.

hey ,
i definately spotted a few duplicates in amongst them all, sadly they appear to be the late 90's rather than early. I'll let you know what I've got. Also my collection of early flyers is a little bit thinner than i had hoped ( much the same as my memory of that time ) , haven't been through them for 10 - 15 years admittedly. Probably lost a few along the way and some got binned accidentally in house moves etc. Earliest were 1991 flyers from Liverpool and Manchester sadly very few, then on through the 90's to some nice Millenium NY Eve flyers from the big clubs.

Have now uploaded all the older ones and the more artistic ones to my flickr account, if you need better photos or pictures of the reverse on any let me know .... 281 photos uploaded yesterday and today !

Enjoy !
