Can You Feel It? Acid House T-shirt
[London]: [Spectrum], ca. 1988. Size XL. Very good. Item #5365
T-shirt from the emergence of ecstasy-fueled clubbing and raves. This shirt was likely sold at Paul Oakenfold’s Spectrum parties, which are regarded as some of the first large acid house raves in London. The Sun newspaper, in an exclusive eye-witness report on Spectrum, noted that "junkies flaunt their craving by wearing T-shirts sold at the club with the messages like ‘Can you feel it?’ and ‘drop acid not bombs.’" This shirt is thus also part of the history of a drug panic that ultimately led to the criminalization of raves in 1994.
