The task was to create a new Genesis'88 logo based on the last depiction of an ancient being. Over the last twenty years we actually believed the logo represented the Greek god Zeus although for us it was a spiritual being. I presented the logo to two old skool graffiti heads with the intention of a getting a makeover. I informed them who i thought the image represented and left it with them. Next day they asked whether I'd ever researched The Green Man and instructed me to search via images in Google. I knew it was him soon as i saw it, especially with the beads and leafs in his hair. That for me added another layer of mysticism to the whole project. I was never quite comfortable announcing it was Zeus.
So i left the old skool lads to their own devices only to return the following day and discover they hadn't changed it at all. We all agreed if it was someone with no history then something banging needed to be produced but considering Genesis'88 flyers were always so simple it didn't make sense to complicate matters. Which by all accounts is my personal preference anyway, I'll let them loose on the backdrops but thank to Xenz and buddy for putting the RETRO flyer together. The Genesis'88 logo first graced paper in 1988 and last printed in 1992. It gives us warm fuzzy feelings inside our bellies to re-establish the brand in the old way...like days of old...

Never say never…In my original paperback book Class of 88 i ended the book with a quote which simply read 'would i do it all over again?' My answer and the last words of the book was 'No Fu*king Chance' For years people have ben asking 'did you really mean that?' I'd instantly reply 'i did'. Recently there's been a lot of interest in the eighties and all that happened during that decade. For my generation nothing could be as monumental as Acid House…Our lives were never quite the same again…
No-one in our association has a time machine so unless YOU personally transport your ego back to that uninhibitating sensation of pure empathy, it's just gonna be another warehouse party. I don't have a magic wand i cant transport us to that idillic forum BUT you can, its within you to make it happen in the way it did back in the day. I guess what Im saying is if you plan on coming please suspend your ego at the door and enjoy the freedom of being alive during this unique period in our history.
I've found an amazing warehouse space run by some cool people who have been granted the necessary licenses to stage an event from 10pm-6am. Completely legal venue i have no intention of crashing buildings or stealing electricity like we did back then (Come On!). We do intend on keeping the address secret at this time though if the police want to know then do contact us.
We will be utilising social networks though of late i keep getting locked out of certain accounts on certain dates for some strange reason. So please Subscribe to my personal mailing list (no-one gets this but me) WAYNEANTHONY88@GMAIL.COM and Also sign up to the event page on Facebook and my other related Acid House pages such as Classof88 and Class of 88
