    IN COMFORTABLE silence we sat for the first few puffs before John mused, "Not long to go now." "Mmm," I answered, enjoying the hazy blanket descending from the outside in. A pause. "Are you sure you want to go through with it, Izz?" "Yeah man. I have too." "But you know, you are, well, kind of useless, right?" I wasn't offended. John's words were voiced with affection and a fair amount of prior experience. "I like to think of myself as endearingly useless bro." "That's still useless. Do you really think you can pull this off?" "No, not really.” The spliff savoured. Passed back. “But you know, it’s sure going to be a trip finding out." John leaned back, looked up and laughed. "Well I guess it's good that you've stopped this straight edge bollocks then. You know before it felt as if you hung out with us because you had too. Now it feels like you want too." John still thought my travels might chemically lobotomise; but at least now I should have some fun along the way. * * * * SO OKAY, I wasn't some electronic prophet destined to lead a straight edge revolution. People of all ages weren't going to flood the dance scene for the good of their health, due to my example. I was an ageing hedonist heading for one final blowout and all things were back on the table. I had no idea what the next few months held, what they would mean. I hoped meaning would be found. I was searching for secrets and mysteries and magic - for an end worthy of the name. And I was scared shitless. But it was going to be great . . . I hoped. * * * * This blog is a story.

    So far so good, but i'm stuck at home today looking after a sick baby. Well she's ok, but she had a fever yesterday and daycare gave her a 24hr exclusion. But at least it'll give me time to work on my assessments while she's busy playing in her jail cell play pen. How is yours?

    Hey @AdamMadd Yeah that's the first third of the story done, so was thinking of stopping there. Not sure what readership I've got but if enough Ozclubbers protested I could be persuaded to continue on

    I'm getting the feeling this summer is going to be a shocker though. I've been going through so many BBMWi results I didn't even have to bother translating the ones from a Chinese client, I just looked at the numbers and figured out what ws what.

    Amamoor is really nice, and we found it really peaceful. Its a shame about the people playing country music there. When we were there, there was only one other couple there and they were free-camping in their van and right over the other side of the park. Toilets were well kept too when we were there. It was just a shame i had that allergic reaction to something there.

    Amamoor State Forrest, up near Gympie. Was good until the second day when a group decided to set up right next to us and then play country music non-stop

    Quoted from Pete Helskanki: ---------------------------- - Techno is a "genre" traced back to 1973 (Source) - Techno has risen in popularity in recent years (Source) - Techno has many subgenres, many of them deviating from the 1973 sound considerably (no source) - One of the leading underground techno labels today is Pole Group () - The term "Techno" is used very commonly to describe House and Tech House genres in a bid to exploit current trends this is true with other genres (source) Oh one more statement to add which is more of a personal view point: Two of the most well-known brands in Techno are Drumcode and CLR (Official) - Drumcode features very accessible music with simpler compositional elements. The structures making way for vocal elements. This kind of sound is often a gateway for individuals exploring the deeper sounds of the genre.

    Tiga posted a very raw and honest thing on facebook yesterday, which just goes to show that even the big guys have off days. The original post is here: Quoted below: "Here's something nobody talks about; how about when you DONT kill it. How about when you are what is actually wrong with the party. Your programming is lazy, your decisions are Ill-informed, you vacillate between confidence and cluelessness. Your records sound slow. You can't maintain a connection. The center cannot hold. You summon up arrogance to bolster your position. THEY obviously don't get it. Those "people" out there. That unknowing primitive mass doesn't understand the levels: that I'm a tortured post-trance, deep-funk acid-tinged anti-techouse futurist pop-laced groove martyr and that even when my effort is minimal and my energy is anemic and my playlists are best compared to outsider art and my grasp of the situation is utterly compromised by my self-absorption---- they should still bow down to my REPUTATION and go crazy and scream and clap. But no. There are nights when they know something you don't. And just like that, for a few hours, the magic is gone. And that's ok- makes it all the more magical when it reappears in another city, on another night. So yeah, sorry Rome. I love you but I just didn't kill it tonight. Love t" What a legend!

    BUT I was also other things. I was the after-image I caught reflected in my friends’ conversation. I was intelligent, articulate, charming, stately, positive, spiritual. A unique and beautiful snowflake. And beneath the seethe these qualities lurked, waiting for me to stop paying attention. And I was ambitious. And I was amorous. And I knew I was destined for great things. I’d been promised. We all had. And this was my shot. And it was going to define me, you understand? It was a fucking definition. And for this reason, these qualities - maybe also to better grip - I began to think grander as the weeks passed. I decided my travels had to be about more than just festivals. I decided they had to be about self renewal as well. That from them I should emerge repaired, enhanced, a six million dollar man - gentlemen we can rebuild him, we have the technology - faster, stronger, bionic, moving with a satisfying dbo-o-oo-i-i-n-ng sound. An Izzy Mark 2. I was a phoenix and I would rise. With an X cut across my heart and my fist raised in solidarity, I would join the straight edge brethren and eschew the evil opiates of the modern world. Not for me any longer nicotine and caffeine and sugar and pot and TV and recreational drugs - all must go. (But not meat. Meat was tasty. Meat was good.) I had four months to detox before hitting the northern summer and its festivals high on life, able to dance all night on water, good vibes and the contact high. I would be a shining example to all. * * * * This blog is a story. Each post picks up from the last.

    WITH MY friends, it was a different conversation: ME—I've quit my job. FRIEND—Fek, really? ME—Yeah. I’m taking the year off. Crazy, ay? FRIEND—Crazy. FRIEND—So what are you going to do? Travel? ME—Sort of. I'm going to hit some festivals. FRIEND—Festivals? ME—Well, more of a dance festival tour, really. FRIEND—A dance festival tour . . . ME—I have six planned in six countries, so far. [Dumbfounded silence] ME—I'll spend the northern summer doing it. [Dumbfounded silence] ME—Maybe write a book about it. [Dumbfounded silence] ME—So, want to come? I’ll make you famous. John, face impassive as he listened to all this, said, "Buddy, if you're going to spend a summer partying your arse off around the world, the only book you're going to write is: See Izzy. See Izzy dance. Dance, Izzy, dance." * * * * This blog is a story. Each post picks up from the last.

    AND I dreamed. Oh, I dreamed of the ephemeral magic of dance festivals gone by, radiant like hearth fire in my memory. How I’d always been fascinated, ever since my earliest days when on film I tried to capture—I don’t know, something—in the rain and the mud of The Gathering. How I'd never been able to get to their essence when evangelising to the trapped and the prearranged, but knowing there was more, always more. A goodness in festivals, redemption and transformation; secrets and mysteries and magic that brought out the very best in human kindness, kinship and beauty. How there was culture, community, a whole conversation going on. A movement on the march, had been since the eighties, multigenerational, thriving, and was more, always more than the mainstream caricatures: the overdoses, the drug-ee jokes, the scenesters, the posers, the superstar DJs, the dimly beautiful, the snatched footage of spangled kids, neon-lit with combusting eyes, the hippies cavorting as hippies do. And how this diminution and condescension from a plastic world had always rankled, a world where you could now rise and rise based on the rise itself, and discourse had crushed to five second sound bites with 140 characters coming that year. A world gripped by a nameless dread, in need of new models of community. And how I'd always understood it, also. Understood that the secrets and magic and mysteries defied comprehension unless immersed, perhaps would defy documentation, too, but which still I yearned to live, capture and record. I felt, as I had always felt, the story, the real story of electronica, of its festivals and of those who go, was out there, waiting to be told. * * * * This blog is a story.

    CHAPTER 6. "COUCH DANCING," I mumbled happily, slinging my inflatable couch off my back where it landed with a plop in the mud. I grinned at my fellow trancers who all grinned back at me, evidently appreciating the sheer brilliance of my idea. It was two in the morning and I hadn’t slept for forty hours, the afternoon a disconnected set of joyous fragments I can’t put to any chronology. Flashes of Kathy with laughter in her eyes telling me Darius had gone la-la-land: being mandated to grab him, ground him: riding out with a posse in response; of sympathising with Joseph, who’d twisted his ankle and couldn't dance and didn't seem too upset, blazing spliff after spliff with Cam; and of conspiring in the Food Tent with Gary: we would storm Ibiza in July, and he would make the track: I see you baby shaking that ass, shaking that ass, his own. And flashes of coming around a curl in the trees to see Jackie in the distance in the Trance Zone - she who we knew as dirty old Jack because she kept up with the lads - but stunning at this moment, an outline on an elevation, with wide beatific smile, dreamy closed eyes, rapturous upraised hands, clouds and crowd and DJ behind. Jackie, who later would lose a pill in a haystack and utter the immortal words, “That's going to be one fucking happy cow.” It was two in the morning and I was on my way up for the third time and I’d just humped my inflatable couch halfway across the Downs - one mention by Darius of our long-running joke to couch dance in the Trance Zone enough to set me off on a spangled mission . . . * * * * This blog is a story.

    AND HERE the Trance Zone. A gasper, I tell you. Awe inspiring. Like reaching Mount Aoraki's summit, the unhindered horizon, its sheer scale terrific. Set into a natural amphitheatre the size of a football field, it was collared on three sides by the same set of slick, tangled trees that towered. Inside, creating a ring, I counted ten sideways blue funnels - each at least twenty feet high, half again as deep - and each overflowing with enough speakers to be worthy of their own sound systems. Ten of these. Deep at the back was a raised DJ platform: a blue headstone arch flanked on either side by wall-sized screens, and in the zone itself, clusters of green and blue columns, some taller than the speaker funnels, crowned by multi-coloured closed flowers or stacked pink planets. And all above a gleaming green field that looked in severe need of several thousand people jumping up and down on it. It was beyond all expectation, and in happy admiration we stood on its edge awhile, boisterously discussing which DJs we looked forward too and where the best speaker cross-over points were - those sound oases of the dance floor - and generally just soaking in the atmosphere, until, just as we were about to leave, had just started to turn away, were wet and dripping and intent on hot beverages - coffee? Yeah, yeah, coffee - we were stunned still and silent by a sudden sonic boom that came crashing out of the zone, a tsunami of sound, a thunderclap collapsing. It roared around us, vibrated through us, shook us up for a good half minute or so. "What . . . the hell . . . was that?" I asked as the sound faded, running down like an expiring earthquake. "That, my boy," answered Darius with a grin, "is what they call a sound check for the Trance Zone." It was beyond all possibility and I’m sure I was slack-jawed as I heard someone mutter: "Fuck me." It was probably me. * * * * This blog is a story. Each post picks up from the last. If you are new, start at the bottom with post 1 and then work your way up. * * * * Enjoying what you're reading?

    I AWOKE to a pattering. Groggy from sleep I yawned and stretched, touched dim, damp canvas. Despite the telltale droplets beading its surface, it didn’t mean much at first with a pot-over murking my mind. I unzipped from my sleeping bag and shivered in the cold, pulled on another T-shirt and jersey. Sam muttered in the corner but slept on. I crawled over him to exit. Outside it was depressingly bleak for the middle of summer. A flock of inky sheep crowded the sky, pressing low over oily trees. A foggy haze obscured much. A cold, steady rain fell, dead straight, hitting the ground in a rat-a-tat-tat of squishy splats. There was no wind, a small blessing, for vapour trails curled with my every exhalation. It was all very strange. I'd been primed on Gathering stories of magnificent sunshine, of bevies of brown bodies stomping away until they threw up thick dust clouds in a dance floor halo. But today, well today felt like you should be inside curled up with a good book. Muttering a prayer to the festival gods, I ducked in under the tarpaulin. Jacob, dressed warm in a Swanndri, another ex-flatmate and good keen man from the south, was already up and about. "Morning, Izz. I was just making coffee. You want one?" "Yeah bro, cheers." I sat on my couch, waking up. Jacob turned from the cook top, handed me one of two cups, and came to join me. We lit cigarettes and contemplated the gloom. "Maybe it will all blow over?" I offered. "Nah, I've done a bit of tramping around these parts. When the weather’s like this, it'll hang around a while. A couple of days, I reckon." I looked at him. "Fark." "Could be worse,” he said cheerfully. “You could have only brought a hammock like Charley.” We laughed and wondered where Charley had gone. * * * * This blog is a story.

    HALFWAY ALONG the ridge we found the end of the camps and claimed our kingdom. I was glad because my arms were tired, and because my suitcases elicited weird looks from the other Gatherers. Joseph and Tim set about putting up their tents. Sam and I sat on the grass and shared a joint in the sun. It wasn't long before others began to arrived. First in were Darius and Kathy in his beat-up, mustard-coloured station wagon. They roared up to the tents, handbraked, slid a few feet, and then almost before the car had stopped moving, as it was still sliding, they bounded out with that yes-we're-finally-here energy we all felt. "Bloody hell," declared Dar. "How was that queue?" "Ah, it was madness," answered Tim from where he practiced poiing, chains and ribbons flying about his body. "But at least you weren't in a taxi van." Darius snickered at this. I suspect it was the reason he'd mentioned the queue in the first place. The taxi van had been his idea. With his gold-and-black mane pulled into pigtails and sporting a lemon T-shirt scrawled with BMXcellent across the front, Darius now leaned across the bonnet of his car with all the restless intensity of a pool-less man with cannonballs on his mind. Kathy, his girlfriend, gave a shake of her blonde dreadlocks and rolled her eyes. "Ignore him, I do," she said, coming over to give Sam and I a hug. "How did you guys get here then?" "A family in a camper gave us a lift," I said. "Jeez, that was lucky," Darius said coming over to give us a hug also. "Otherwise it would have been a bloody long walk." We offered Darius the joint, and he puffed away and unpacked. Soon he'd unloaded a two-man tent Sam and I would be sharing for the duration of the Gathering. "Here you go boys, have fun." Having never put up a tent I eyed it dubiously, as only a man bringing suitcases to an outdoor festival could. I threw a feeler out to Sam hoping he would take the lead. "What do ya reckon, bro?" Sam, however, had never put up a tent either, and, unbeknownst to me, had taken a quarter trip earlier in the day with Joseph. Still, he sounded confident. "I think we’re intelligent guys, Izz. It can’t be that hard." Reassured, we set to it with all the will and logical might we could muster. Half an hour, several conversations, one dirt drawn diagram, and two arguments later, we’d put up something . . . it just didn’t look like anything our friends had erected. While theirs were taunt and proudly rippled, ours bowed in on one side and was the sort of shape a sneeze from a fluey canvas monster might make. We stood back in thoughtful silence. "Good enough?" I finally said, casting a sideways glance in Sam’s direction. "Good enough," he replied. "Who sleeps at a festival anyhow?" Chortling at this supreme piece of logic, we set about clearing away the disconcertingly high number of leftover pegs, ropes, and poles. Luckily, given the events to come later, Darius interrupted our furtive clean-up halfway through. "What the fuck do you guys call that?" he asked looking at our misshapen pile of canvas.This a difficult question to answer given his sustained laughter and shouted invites for others to come see. This laughter and shouted invitation went on for a long time. After he was good enough to show us the error of our ways - in-between further laughing fits - and suitably cowed, our intellect defeated by the complexity a two-man tent, weed and LSD can bring to any situation, we followed his instructions meekly. Go figure, all those leftover pegs, ropes, and poles were meant for something after all. * * * * This blog is a story. Each post picks up from the last.

    AROUND 2 PM we made it to the unsealed road. From there we rattled along nonstop through a cloud of dust kicked-up by those in front. We could see how far we'd climbed when hills were revealed low on our left, sporting fangs of rock or clipped olive afros. Beyond and lower, the Tasman Sea, smiling, covered by a careless spray of clouds. We knew we’d reached The Gathering when a man abruptly appeared in the middle of the road and directed us to swing right into a pasture. On a slow pan across the windscreen, it bristled with tents and vehicles strewn to middle distance trees, and was mobbed by a confusion of colourful humans moving in all directions like confetti caught high in the wind. Excited, we cheered our first sight of an orange-doored Portaloo, the camper stereo playing Placebo, the lyrics entirely in keeping with our mood: A friend in need’s a friend indeed, a friend with weed is better . . . The Gathering was an alcohol-free event - no mention made of other substances - which really meant, as everybody knew, bring what you want but keep it hidden, otherwise we'll confiscate it for one hell of a tear-down party after you've all gone home. To scrounge for this yellow-jacketed security guards searched vehicles. We bounced along to one. He stepped up to the driver's window, took one rueful look in at us packed like a Peruvian bus in the back, and waved us on, inspection done. Next was a long line of tables where the ticketers waited. Here we got armbands and unloaded, and here we said good-bye to our benefactors, who drove off to our many thanks and waves. They left us at the head of the main camping area: a large tract of open grass, hourglass in shape. It was hedged in on all sides by hillocks covered with ancient beech trees and some other topiary: squat and cauliflower like, with a muddy green foliage. Their unshaped concentrations cloaked the downs in prehistory, as if at any moment a Moa might come crashing out of the brush, its splayed three-toed feet flying, and I found myself on a slow spin, with deep breaths, vibrating to the savagery like a tuning fork struck. A state near hysteria, fed further by the impress of lime fields, blue sky, bright light, warm sun; by the din of distant music and the hundreds of vehicles and thousands of people in free-flow in front. "Oi, Izzy! Come on, bro." I snapped out of my trance. I saw my friends had set off. I hastened to follow, picking up my suitcases - yes, suitcases. It was time to find a camp spot and get ourselves baked. * * * * This blog is a story. Each post picks up from the last.
