TITLE: Syrous #17 - ' Reinforced '
LOCATION: The Guvernment / RPM
DATE: September 20th, 1997
AUDIO: Mickey Finn {A}{B}{C}{D}
ATTENDANCE: 3200

FEATURED DJ:
Dj Mickey Finn, MC GQ

MEMORIES: This would end up being my last Syrous. The first time we successfuly got both GQ and Mickey Finn into the country. Wicked choons all night. GQ was energized. Wasnt thrilled about the location but sometimes you have no other choice. I also played this night but i have no recording of it. Mickey and GQ produced some Wicked vibes straight through. A memorable night for sure, and historic.

I have a nice story from this night.

Mickey Finn was always my favourite. All the awol tapes, every set I heard, he was the one DJ i had always waited to see.

When he didnt make it thru at Champions of Champions, I was disapointed.
( I heard later he couldnt leave the UK cuz he was on probation )

When I saw this lineup, I was ecstatic! This was the one!

So as the night approached, me and my friends where all hyped. we got in early and I recall the warehouse being half full. the sound was BOOMIN, and I mean boomin.


so loud in fact, that shortly after we got inside, my friend passed out. Apparently the bass was too much. He left, with everyone else, leaving only me and another buddy inside.

an hour passed, and we where worried about his well being, so we went outside and told the security guard our story and that we want to check on him, and she agreed to sign our hand and let us back in when we returned.

We get to where we usually hung out and find everyone chillin and havin a good time. The guy that passed out was fine, laughed at us for leaving, and told us to get our ass back down there, so we did.

drive all the way back down to the Warehouse, get to the front, and after much arguing with teh same security guard (who seemed to have forgot our deal) she finally decides to let us in. as we are being searched, my friend is found with a bag of pot in his pocket and we both get denied entrance to the event.

As we walked away past the back door of the warehouse, we hear GQ do his now infamous introdction of the might Mickey Finn. We sat by that door, smoked a joint, and then left.

2 weeks later I spent 40$ on the tapes (horrible recording) at EasternBloc.

dude that is brutal. I have to check the recording on these tapes again. i havent heard them in ages. I dont remember them being that bad. I'll encode them shortly.

Sorry you didnt get in bud. Was it Lucia or Suzie (blonde) that didnt let you in?

the tapes I got are all distorted.

I believe it was Lucia. i know she wasnt blonde, but she was a familiar face at all the events.

Toxic.. thats shitty dood.

Strange.. i don't even recall seeing the flyer for this. Although for some reason as 96 ended it really seemed like alot of people were leaving the scene and alot of shit was changing. Probably because that was the end of seeing good unique venues used. Warehouse was the standard and fuk was I sick of going there. Looking back though i'm sure this event would rinse compared to the shit being thrown at the opera house now.

I have a GREAT memory of this jam before it even happened

We were standing in Nathan Phil waiting for the shuttle and everyone was talking shit about how Mickey wasn't gonna show up. So i got up and walked into the shelter thing and called the syrous infoline. "The sound you hear behind me is that of a canadian freeway, My name is Mickey Finn, and I AM HERE"

To which i yelled at a crowd of ravers "Oh yeah, well mickey's on the fucking infoline so quit shit talking" I then watched people huddle around the payphone listening to the message.

Great event, warehouse sucks but the intro GQ gave mickey was one of the best of all time, "of the three i wanna here the most fucking noise in toronto..."

Great event, warehouse sucks

no way. i loved that venue.

spacious, always proper sound / lighting.

as far back as 92, i always recall that place being proper. maybe a little overused.

that's what it was though, that was around the start of the massive over-use of that venue for DnB. It wasn't the building that spoiled it, it was going there every weekend for months at a time.

I mean shit, we're still raving it up inside those walls
