There was an illegal rave in Bath last night.

Judging by the reaction of local residents on social media, this was undoubtedly the biggest event to take place here since Asterix visited the City in 50 BC.

Unsurprisingly, the vast majority have been condemning the rave, with any excitement the result of outrage and not illegal drugs or banging toons.

Some, inevitably, have leapt to the defence of the revellers…

What a tolerant woman. Who would have thought that she lives in BRISTOL, so would not have been affected by the disturbance.

I can also state with total honesty that in my youth, not once did I attend a rave – legal or otherwise. A night in Dan’s damp basement flat, playing multiplayer GoldenEye was my way of a good night. No drums, no bass, no drugs, nothing against the law and back home in bed before midnight.

My sleep wasn’t disturbed by the music, although Claire would be right to point out that had I gone to bed next to the DJ’s speaker, I would have still slept well.

I am pissed off for the tens of thousands of locals who either didn’t sleep as well as me, or live closer to the Upper Swainswick – the site of the rave.

My mum lives very near to that area of Bath and tells me it was awful… although I have my suspicions that she was one of the rave organisers.

I also assume that, as the rave was just a bit of fun, any rubbish generated by the festivities will have all been carefully cleaned up by those who attended. I am sure that the fun-seekers wouldn’t want anyone not responsible to have to clean up their mess.

Then there is the COVID-19 situation. Clearly a rave isn’t the best place to follow social-distancing. If people want to risk their own health and lives for a bit of fun, “it’s their funeral”, as the saying goes.

However, no doubt after a night’s raving and pill-popping, Tyler will visit “Nan” for Sunday roast. Hopefully when passing his grandmother the gravy, he won’t also pass on a killer virus.

It sounds like due to the volume of covidiots, Avon and Somerset Police had trouble shutting down the rave. They should have just asked Mark Corrigan for help…

If I haven’t come across as a grumpy old man yet, I’ll leave you with this question…

How can anyone consider this music? Had I made this racket during a music lesson in school, I would have been given a detention.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
