Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...
Or: Register
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

Was this the very first 'bash'?

Thank you. This thread - of only 2 posts to date - has had 325 views so far, which is quite a high count.

Two of the three links above have been disabled. Someone's removed a single digit from the sequence of numbers at the end of each URL, causing the FB error message.
Someone clearly doesn't want these Facebook postings viewed, so I'll summarise the content that maybe doesn't cause concern.

By the way ... since the question's not been answered ... that posting of 29.12.2003 (middle link) on the SCGB forum ...

This is the accomodation. Ignore what it says about catering being 'breakfast only': I've been offered full chalet board if we fill the place!
Need a quick response though.

... may or may not be 'the very first bash'. I actually very much doubt it. The text's author has all the hallmarks of someone who'd cut their teeth in organising ski holidays for diverse people, but it's interesting in maybe consolidating a trend via social media.

The disabled links to Facebook examine the background. Some of the details ...



When snowHeads sprang to life in Feb 2004 there was interest in its heritage/inspiration. Its founder(s) had a background in electronic music, with a recording studio behind Kings Cross station in London called ...
-- 'ULTIMATE BRAIN'. Its website continues, with its recording hardware (maybe still intact!) listed here:
Describing its locality at that time (billions have been spent on modernisation of the area since then) ... "The studio is located in Kings Cross, London: convenient for shops,trains, busses, whores and crack dealers."

Various other artists/enterprises were tagged to that one, including 'Freedom of Sound' and 'Krass':
-- 'FREEDOM OF SOUND'. Its recordings:
Freedom of Sound has its own history. Quoting its webpage:
"Freedom of sound have been about since about 1990 with their first release 'A Kiss' being made and punted round the shops and distributors DIY style with the help of Existence ...
... Going on to join forces with Choci (known for his Chewns and bad spelling) to set up a bit of a wikid studio in Soho; a year holed up in there brought a fair few releases on Aura and Chocis Chewns ... This was then transformed into a live thing with spots at such noisy places as Megatripolis, Tribal Energy and The Final Frontier at Cub UK as well as a couple of Live Broadcasts for Mushroom FM in Cambridge thanks to nice people like Mr. Smith and Lulu from Clueless SoundSystem ...
... Loads of parties and two studios later Freedom of Sound is now signed to Silver Planet and based at the Ultimate Brain in London's Kings Cross along with Uplink and Alien Cops In Disguise and living on fags and an endless supply of decent coffee."
