Over the last few years and as we all get a little older here at AAA we’ve increasingly reflected on the two decades of work, play and friendships we’ve enjoyed with the amazing crews and individuals we’ve had the pleasure to meet at parties, festivals and of course our record and ticket stores.
As we looked through old flyers, photos and the odd video we realised we needed to create an archive of our shared history for all of us to enjoy and for future generations to get a small sense of what we as a scene created and were part of whether you were a promoter, performer or participant.
Many of you will already have looked through some of the galleries we’ve posted of various parties and festivals that we supported, attended and worked at. But there is oh so much more to go though and upload (about a dozen hard-drives more!) including old zines, posters, backdrops, music and memorabilia.
We also want to recognise some of our leading lights who inspired and brought us together us with magical events, music and artwork that became both beacons and hubs of the scene.
But we want to build more than just a static archive. Our journeys aren’t yet over even if we’re not directly involved to the same extent we once were. Many of us have embarked on new journeys setting up projects and establishing communities that warrant linking and sharing with the scene along with revealing and inspirational literature, media and places to visit.
Equally there are those who have left us for new dimensions that should not only be remembered, but celebrated and so accordingly we have created a new section called Celebration of Life.
So if you have any material, memorabilia, or stories you feel could contribute to our archive we would love to hear from you because our history is a shared history and would be nothing without all of you who helped make it happen: promoters, performers and of course the amazing party people.

It’s no secret that the arts, entertainment and music sectors are currently suffering unprecedented difficulties as a consequence of the Corona Virus. This has left those that work in the industry with no work or income for the last six months and the foreseeable future.
While the government has provided for some small businesses and self-employed AAA was not one of them as we are limited. While it absolutely pains us to ask, if you would like to help support us through these difficult times and towards our project we would be able to focus on completing out this project.
Thank you for all your support in the past. We hope we can quickly get back to work so that we can serve you again. Until then, be safe and look out for one another and don’t be shy in reaching out if you need someone to talk to.
One love and all our love. AAA
