| DJ Sets :: Amnesia House Old Skool Rave Events

 

Amnesia House are one of the original promoters of the 'Rave / Acid House Scene', organising illegal warehouse parties as far back as 1988, and are the unsung heroes of the industry. They have never cashed in on the scene and have always put on parties for the people, not for their bank balance. Neville and Bambam (Mickey Lynas's brother) of Amnesia House took us through "Rave History".

The name Amnesia House has been familiarised with the Balearic Rave scene for many years. In fact the name was brought back from Ibiza, and used in the UK for their rave at Canal Road. Their first party was for 200 people in Canal Road, Coventry. They were really quite naive those days. They were just ravers who decided to put on their own events. They began as doormen in clubs, and progressed in to the House scene as organisers.

The two people that started Amnesia House were Bambam and Neville's brother Kieran. With their second party the police took interest into what they were doing due to other things happening in Coventry. The police came down heavily on them. So after the second party they let things cool down a little.

It was when they started up again and began to organise another party, Neville joined Amnesia House. Kieran had gone abroad and just left Neville and Bambam running things. Their third party could really be described as their first legal party. They were offered a venue by Stuart, a friend of theirs, who had a friend who lived out in the countryside and the venue was actually to be in the grounds at his estate. As this was to be an all ticket event and they had permission from the landowner, the event was 'legal'. Also back then and Entertainment Licence was not required as it is now (amongst much more red tape). This party was called 'House 1', they had a kicking sound system, scaffolding with sheeting on, and a few flashing lights. About 250 people turned up. The second event, 'House 2', was held in a warehouse offered to them by a friend. The police actually helped this event go ahead for the police helicopter lit up the road enabling the convoy of ravers to find their way to the venue. It went on from there really, they started to attract people from all over, but initially Birmingham. At 'House 3' a lot of Birmingham people attended the vent.

Amnesia House at this time was big enough for the police to take an interest in their parties, they were approached by the police and asked to consider going legal, they didn't want dodgy warehouse events taking place, they preferred everything above board.

It was at this time that Mickey Lynas joined Amnesia House, Mickey started up a mailing list, where people became members under the Amnesia House name. They then found a venue called 'Sky Blue Connection' and the police said that they could hold the events there. This was probably the very first legal club rave in the UK. The police were very co-operative, they agreed that a Public Entertainments Licence was not needed, but a condition was that everyone had to be a member of the club, so it could be classed as a private party. The only problem for them was that the ticket office was situated three miles away from the club and people could not pay on the door, they had to buy a ticket and they were automatically a member on buying a ticket. The events at the 'Sky Blue Connection' were probably some of the best in the Midlands rave scene. The events were taking place once a month and they always had top DJ's playing on the nights, DJs including Doc Scott (who had been with them since 1988), Man Parris (who was also one of the big DJ's back then before he became and MC). After six top class events at this venue, the 'Sky Blue Connection' was closed down with deepest regret, due to the police clamping down on events, so they then moved to 'The Eclipse' in Coventry.

The Eclipse was the first all-night rave club back in 1991, it opened as the first all-night club in the UK with an Entertainments Licence. Amnesia House were not doing anything at first, but when went and held six top-class events that were rammed to capacity. It was probably some of the best events held in the history of the rave scene. At the same time that they were in the Eclipse, Amnesia House were running the most renowned club for Rave Events in Shelly's Lazerdrome at Stoke-On-Trent. Shelly's was a pure Happy House club that had an atmosphere that was unbeatable, booking top PAs such as N-Joi and Altern8 and it also had all the top DJs playing there.

Shelly's was a mecca for rave. Things went on at Shelly's which no other club experienced. For example, Altern8 performing a live PA in the car park for the ravers at 3am after the club was close! Neville was not only a promoter, but also appeared as security at their events, then he began to go on the mic at Shelly's. He wasn't really an MC, he was just giving a shout out to the crowd - he never MCd for any other organisations. However, his friends said he should be called Loud N Nasty. Shelly's was sadly closed down, the police stopped them from getting their Entertainment's Licence. Amnesia House found this to be a great loss for they had had 18 months in there and found it to be some of the best times. The Eclipse was still being used by Amnesia House, and was becoming more and more popular at their parties on Fridays.

Donnington Park was the next big step. The first Donnington Park event was July 9, yet again standards not dropping, and on the best DJ and MC line up, and the first event pulled in 7500 people, showing they had a mass following. The only thing letting them down was the sound system, and after four events there, with the sound system getting letting them own each time, they thought it was best to move on for they felt that they were letting down the ravers. If Amnesia House would have stayed at Donnington Park, they would have been offered the event that Fantazia did in the open air for 25000 people. 1992 saw Amnesia House start preparing for the 'Book of Love' event, featuring the wedding of their then partner, Mickey Lynas. Amnesia House could still have done the event without the marriage of Mickey, but although it was to the disagreement of Bambam and Neville they decided to let it go ahead as it was just an extra attraction on stage, and in fairness it did go down well.

Two years previously, Mickey Lynas had a dream. He wanted to get married on stage in front of 15000 people. On that day his dream came true. Other members of Amnesia House did not want him to do the wedding for they knew that they could pull the numbers in anyway, but Mickey and Nemesis thought that they could get all the DJs and PAs to play for free... but they all got paid in the end. The event was an unbelievable success, all the DJs played very well, the weather stayed dry and fine and there was an excellent atmosphere in the crowd all night. The sound system and lighting was to Amnesia House's usual high standards.

It was after the wedding that Amnesia House and Mickey fell out over money. Mickey decided to go his separate way and leave Amnesia House and started up a company called Dance Trance. This proved a very emotional time for Neville and Bambam because of all the hard work they had put into the 'Book of Love'. They could not believe there was no money left to put on their next event, they felt they had been connect, they did not make a penny, in fact a loss, so they were back to square one. Amnesia went back to their roots and started all over again back at The Eclipse, still pulling in the crowds of 2000 and more and holding their heads up high, they hadn't lost peoples faith. Neville and Bambam believe in a different style of event keeping it unique to Amnesia, always booking the country's top DJs. Everyone that goes knows what to expect.

Leading up to Xmas they had some really busy nights, on Boxing Day it was packed, but their real biggy was New Years Eve. Neville and Bambam found things to be ticking over just fine. Amnesia House was left alone for a while when a big shock came for everyone - "The Wedding Anniversary", although they didn't call it Amnesia House Mickey used all the original pictures from the first even and gave out free videos leading people to believe that it was an Amnesia House event. The original Amnesia House came back with a vengeance. They did an event at 'The Sanctuary', even though it was bad timing as there were a lot of other big events going off at the same time, the production was still spot on and it was still a huge success, Amnesia House still pulled a large crowd proving they are still a leading promoter in the UK. Amnesia's next big event was at 'The Institute' in Birmingham and it was crammed in.
