DJ Fattman pretty much explained the names of the Welsh crews – there may also be one called Celtic Resistance which was about at dragonmoot.
I’ve been to a couple of Welsh parties in the last two years (every so often they link up with the English crews) – but due to the distance involved can only get up there every so often….
as for the worries over newbies being cops (or heddlu 😉 ) in 14 years of raving and over 5 years of this messageboard being online I have not known this to happen. it would be a difficult way of getting info that could be obtained more easily from other sources such as simple area surveillance and CCTV monitoring.
We get cops on here every so often but they are obvious in their activities (one force even registered and posted a message to warn people in their area off having raves there!).
Welsh forces do check the internet quite closely (in fact NWP/HGC was one of the first forces to monitor the internet back in 1998, and went as far as getting a court order on an ISP to divulge user details and home address) , but they are usually looking for for blatant stuff like flyers, locations and partylines on open public sites.
I have been told by a number of people inside and outside Wales that the reason the heddlu re often so “nosey” is simply because there is not a lot else to do in some areas – bar (baa?) lost/stolen livestock and domestic violence. Exactly the same applies to many rural areas of England or Scotland, and raves are classed as medium level rural crime nowadays…
Lets face up to the facts though, cops will turn up anyway at a rave as soon as the locals realise it is going on and call 999 to complain about noise/traffic. What happens after – whether it is stopped or not – depends on how much spare resources the cops have and how much disruption the event is causing.
Being too paranoid about newbies on messageboards won’t stop parties being busted but may deter sound new people which are always needed on the scene….August 11, 2005 at 10:37 am #1066653JosieParticipant
The heddlu in wales aren’t too bad when it comes to free parties, when i tried to get to the UKTek the police stopped me in my car and politley asked where i was going (so i told them) and the very nice officer said that he couldn’t let me take my car on to the mountain, but i was more than welcome to park it behind his and he’d keep an eye on it for me…
But there are always assholes, if you so much as look at them the wrong way it’s rubber gloves on and full body search (yuk!). It’s just important to keep your wits about you and know your rights as a raver!August 11, 2005 at 3:35 pm #1066650
haha yeah the welsh police seem like the types bored enough to break up parties, i mean what else goes on here? bit of bestality but sadly nothing of any other criminal interest!
is there a big party contingent in south wales? i hadnt even realised!August 13, 2005 at 3:10 pm #1066651
thanks to all for the tips! very welcoming of ya. will no doubt see you around sometime soon, and feel free to pm me if something comes up!
