Throwback Thursdays

issue 7: know your enemy

Every Thursday we reprint an article from the Ministry Magazine back-issues.

Every Thursday we delve into the archives of our old print venture, Ministry Magazine. We pick an issue and take a look at a highlight (or lowlight) with a modern eye.

This week we're on Issue 7, with Radio1 superstars Pete Tong and Zoe Ball on the front cover. Stories include how customs officers can tell drugs from jelly sweets, a Glasgow Vs Edinburgh clubbers guide and a rave a VW beetle convention in Newquay. 

But the story we'll be focusing on this week is titled "Know Your Enemy" and is a pictorial that aims to help you identify that most heinous of creatures, the dread-locked Gap Yah, rave 'hippie'. 

Unfortunately even dubstep couldn't trample these guys into the cultural history books and they're still a downer to this day. 

With festival season fast approaching we thought we should reprint this handy guide on how to avoid the kind of person who chats breeze about spirituality before, during and after even the most hardcore Richie Hawtin set.
