Short-lived musical fad from the late eighties
, when the Happy Mondays
, Spacemen 3
, the Stone Roses
and, erm, a few other bands (Flowered Up
, anyone) took too much ecstasy
, UK, listened to too much Acid House
, and made some great, lolloping, disco-meets-rolling-stones music.
Was quite nice, until the gangsters rolled in and started making smackheads of everyone.
