I mercifully didn't go down the appalling dance music road, my musical taste was not too bad in the early 90s. Although I did have that compilation tape with Mr Vain on it. And Ride on Time by Blackbox.

Blur are clearly still better than Oasis, who haven't bothered trying anything new in about a decade.

Ace Ventura is the Shite, he rocks. Luh-hoo, su-hurrr.

Haha, Sun-In! Worst haircar product ever, made your hair look like a seagull had used you for target practice.

Mega-Drives are too new school for me, 2MasterSystem4Life7.


Ah, memories.

Hell yeah!


Naff 'Grunge' fashion victims, mostly students...

Trainers with impossibly huge tongues like Cricketer's kneepads!

School ties that had a giant knot and an inch-long tie!

Mountain Bikes that weighed more than your dad's 205 GTi!

15-inch three-spoke alloys were enough to get gasps of astonished admiration from crowds of onlookers!

'Our Nige' laying waste to the world's best drivers!

Drinking 20/20 wine on the hill by the school!

You had to get up to turn the telly over!

Utilising your sister's Cricket doll (Chuckie-style talking doll using tapes) to load games on your Spectrum while Cricket goes totally mental trying to lip-synch the high-pitched screech! (Or maybe that was just me)
