Classic cover and great club listings from i-D January 1988 with a fine Swindells photo to boot.

Taken from the December 1990 issue when Pure was in full swing at the Milk Bar. Nice bit of product placement from Mr Rampling in the chart there.

I like these pieces. Journalists caught up in a moment and London buzzing. Comparing the now to the then I am wondering – did we get old? Is Punk in Soho the new Wag club? Worrying thought. Young future media types moving in packs… Is house turning into Northern Soul? Old men reliving their youth? We’ll come back to that one with a Test Pressing poll soon. Anyway, here’s more ephemera from times gone by.

i-D: Alfredo Piece

December 23, 2009

Right – not sure where to start with all these but over the coming months I have many amazing pieces courtesy of Matthew J a.k.a Groover from DJ History to post on Test Pressing. First up – DJ Of The Month from i-D April 1990 – the legend that is Alfredo.

Taken from i-D June 1990. Great piece from Matthew Collins interviewing Paul Oakenfold (nice cap), 3D, Daddy G, Smith & Mighty and Joey Jay amongst others, on the influence of reggae and, in hindsight, why it all got slow in 1990.
