I like D&B but to call the Jungle Movement a Punk is laughable...
The whole Jungle thug element was laughable, same as Speed Garage...
Moshchino jeans at Twice as Nice, sucking on some Moet, pleazzze, it was made for Mixmag and the Sun and you bought into it...
To think, at the same time you had Basement Jaxx starting out in Brixton and Steatham Hill, you had Camoflage at the Angel, you had Harvey at 333 and running New Hard Left also at the Angel, you had the Nuphonic Crew and Idjuts plying at the DogStar in Brixton, you even got some good DJ's at Garage City and Mass...why the hell would you need to be stuck in a vortex of mindless consumerism and acting tough down in Vauxhall..?
Strictly for show if you ask me, more into being seen than being a scene
Jungle was a brand new sound created by the then youth & had all the attitude of punk including the "thug element". When you have music aimed at teenagers/early 20's you will get trouble. It was called being young and rebellious.
Designer labels & champagne were part of twice as nice way before the Sun or Mix Mag even knew it existed. This look started from jungle. Which is what made it like punk. A style, a look & an attitude. You obviously were a late coming and not there in the beginning. That isn't a bad thing but ignorance is.

The differnce is people who don't live in London travel, you know like urrm LEAVE THE CITY THEY LIVE IN once in a while, rather than staying in London, even Fabio and Grooverider have said this.
we had clubs that led up the Jungle bullshit, you lot just gave it at name and got some glitter people at your venues, oh Bjork went let's call OK magazine, ****.
You think your the only ones doing anything, and you try to HOLD on to ANYTHING LONDON, at the end of the day the MUSIC that came out of LONDON WAS PONY , sorry if that is a direct attack on your londoncentric BS, but we left that shit for you lot, we didn't want it, cack. Crossbred Happy hardcore and Ragga MC's who sounded utter cack, I like people who can chat , but the MC's you lot had must had guns for the DJ not to tell them to shut the **** up, MCing came out of cracked up ragga boys wanting to put themselves on stage and no talent was present they probably thought they where god with all that Coke in their heads.
I come from the UK reggae capital, and the MCing on the London scene was shit, I wouldn't even call it chatting, insecent noise coming out of these IDIOTS mouths, lyrics as deep as a Moschino tag.
Did you ever go to the Eclipse in Coventry (Coventry = home of "The Specials")?
Now your just boring me , london london london, me us blah blah, get outta town it's affecting you.
