Ministry of Sound

21st September 1991 - a date firmly fixed in music history. Ministry of Sound, inspired by New York’s cavernous House venues, opened it's doors at 10:00 PM. Raised from what was once a bustling bus garage now derelict in the heart of ‘saff’ London, an area more infamous than famous. No alcohol, 3 flashing lights, moody security and, as a statement against it’s glitzy ‘80s predecessors, shiny trousers and disco shoes frowned upon. Unless you knew the names of at least half-a-dozen Chicago DJ’s you were never going to get past the legendary ‘pickers’ residing the right side of the menacing prison-like gates.
