I think I'd left college by the time Ex-el was released, must have studied to the sounds of the Cobra. I remember introducing 90 to my mates and we used to have it on on a walkman in the pub playing pool........bliss!!

Maybe a scenario where a guy gets locked in a freezer and some fit bird rescues him with "No Chill Out" sampled at the time, the guy appears as though he's been in a sauna, cos of his levis, then as they walk off, the instrumental kicks in.

Anybody famous on here?

Just wondered if any celebs browsed the site, come on don't be shy, it can't just be raving nutters who enjoy the sounds of the state....out yourselves.

Does anybody know of any famous people who like and buy 808state music ?

A new discovery

Most people discovered 808 through Pacific. Out of interest I wondered whether anybody on here has only just heard 808 for the first time via outpost transmission and if they have the same compulsion to buy past releases etc in the same way as the "regulars" on here did when Pacific was released. .....

This could be a COOL gig.......harhar!!

Gonna be televised as well by the looks of it, who knows a snippet of 808 maybe. Reading the line up it sounds as though Peter Kay might be there as well, I might just book it, pack it and f**k off now

Don't worry you weren't trippin, I remember it as well....unless I was off me head at the same time!!....Don't think I taped it though, I had a habit of missing 808 when they were on the tele or just getting the video ready when it was too late....plonker!!
