On 5th May 2013, the UK rave scene lost an inspirational man. Clive Miles, aka Dance Daddy, lost his battle with cancer just weeks after the legendary Country Club Reunion, re-born out of his desire to say farewell and thank you . Everyone who knew Clive and/or The Country Club will join Core in telling you that Dance Daddy was the real life personification of P.L.U.R. Here, Kingston Ward recalls his first experience of The Country Club at the Reunion...
