«It just kicked off. We did Saturdays for like three weeks of June and into July. By the third week the place was an absolute roadblock, absolutely packed. As we'd gone into July it was just a nuthouse, it was absolutely crazy. There was like too many people than could get in, there'd be loads of people outside trying to get in, the place was just a road block. There was people climbing drainpipes to try and get into windows to get in. It was like absolute mayhem… and the real birth of acid house culture. Before that there was the odd warehouse party here and there and not far up the road just here in Southwark Street was Danny Rampling's famous Shoom parties, and they were going before the Clink Street thing, but that was just more of a Balearic thing. This (Clink Street) was proper Acid House. It was New York, Chicago, Detroit, like the Balearic thing was more poppy, you know just general dance music pop, whereas here was black America, New York House, Chicago Acid, Detroit Techno. And it was mental. When we first kicked off people were falling out of here and walking up here to London bridge and, everyone in like smiley T-shirts and bandannas given' it «Acieeed Acieeed!» in the street and we had to tell people like calm down, you're hotting up the area».
