Hardcore - in the house!!! Aaagh!!!

No this is a one off and a probably never to be repeated action.
Hardcore - on the PCC blog, well I never imagined it either.
As you are probably aware when the original rave scene split right down the middle, this happened in about 1991 and 1992 "Up North", but a lot earlier "down Sarf".
That being the original rave scene split and went down two very different paths, that being the following;
1) The dressed up house clubs, epitomised by the likes of Back to Basics, Hacienda, Hard Times, Renaissance, later Cream and Love To Be etc etc
2) The hardcore rave scene which was about 140bpm plus and was typified by places like Doncaster Warehouse and the more overground legal outdoor raves.
I very firmly chose the dressed up house clubs although I had friends who chose the other scene and they'd often try to invite me along, which I'd frequently turn down.
However, I did try Doncaster Warehouse with them once and had a great night although I can firmly say it wasn't my scene and there were certainly some strange individuals in there.
Each to their own however.
One track which was frequently played at those sort of clubs was this one.
Hardcore in every essence, but it was a track which I always loved.
It is just so instant and so energetic.
When that riff kicks in, it's just a huge "rushing" moment.
I never thought I'd see the day when Hardcore was posted on the PCC blog, but as always only the very best tracks get posted and this one is certainly top notch.
P.S. Compnded (is not spelling mistake, the track of the title is spelt the "E" missing. How ironic!!)
