Boy London

April 6, 2013

Who remembers Acid House and all the paraphernalia that came along with it? The baggy clothes, the smiley face tees and the Boy London clothes? I know I do!

For those who don’t, there’s a fantastic documentary about that Summer of 1989 that’s well worth watching at at the end of the page. I found the Boy London sweatshirt at the men’s section in a charity shop on my scavenging trip to Stamford. when I saw it all the memories of watching music videos at the time and the style in them came flooding back. So I brought it home and obviously it contaminated my whole outfit the day I wore it to work:

    I most certainly do remember!
    “Boy” was all over Oxford St in Sydney, where all the hip and trendy people hung out! My flatmate had some Boy suspenders, I think. Seems so long ago! Great score!XXX

    That sweatshirt is really cool! What a find. I remember acid, though not that well, lots of the culture did seep into my brain. I’ve had the song a-a-a-a-acieeed in my head a lot recently!
