Tilbury Skinheads Documentary - BBC Radio 1980



If you ever find yourself heading south on the A13, chances are you are either lost or on your way to Tilbury in Essex. It is very much a town at the end of the line, as the Worlds End pub down by the docks testifies, and definitely not the sort of place you want to end up on your ownsome come nightfall.

A Rock Steady Banter with Dean Thatcher


When ZANI was Positive Energy Of Madness, (PEOM) and we were a club fanzine, Dean Thatcher was a reader first, then a contributor. ZANI/PEOM and Dean became friends, and we could be seen together dancing on speakers or falling off stages. But I doubt if you are interested in our days of nostalgia. The fact remains that Dean was a good DJ, and in days of acid house and the aftermath, became a crowd puller, along with the likes of Danny Rampling, Andy Weatherall, Phil Perry and Steve Proctor, not just down to his choice of music; his stance with The Smiths “How Soon is Now” at Flying was legendary and truly supported the pioneer days of Acid House.
