Brighton Subculture in the Mid-1990s Through Amazing Photos

Many people wished they could bring back a different kind of celebration from their time in Brighton in the 1990s where their favorite pubs and clubs have since closed down.

Brighton subculture in the mid-1990s

The Zap club and parties on the beach. The Zap, located within the King’s Road arches, is currently branded as The Arch. Acid house filled the venue for most of the 90s, making it a popular place to go for people partying in Brighton.

While many people missed things from the 1990s, others looked deeper into the Brighton’s past to find the things they wanted to see return to the city. These photos were taken by The Quaffer that show the alternative scene in Brighton in 1994.

  1. Ah yes...back when the circus came to Brighton, and anyone with an ounce of sense left. Clowns and posers, every last one of them. Ten years too late, typical for Brighton, they were starving for the attention that London had gotten from the punk scene. Bet you a week's wages 90% of them are still there, but now acting the part of Chad and Karen, and still starving for that elusive attention.
