Founded in 1987 Acid Jazz was the eye opener to our second youth subculture. The record label, the music genre it spearheaded and of course- the look.
We were too young for Mod revival and Brit pop hadn't yet -popped. Acid Jazz was the ideal introduction to the scene, and at the time a good excuse to stop going to house clubs. For us the Acid Jazz look was also the best look of the 1990's and the most soulful but then as The Face and I-D magazines warned, this wasn't actually a Mod revival......
