As you can see, some of the proper oldskool jungle parties in Copenhagen tried to hide THE ENTIRE DANCEFLOOR in good ol’ army deco. This is Pandemonium at Huset, 1997.

Ole hides in the army net deco, while Nis just gets on with things behind the decks. He has seen his share of army net deco action, it doesn’t scare him anymore.

“HELP! The army net deco is growing like a fungus! We have an Invasion of the Body Snatchers situation on stage! Save us, please!” Lækker Lytter Crew doesn’t seem to take the cries for help all too seriously. The rave scene can be a dark place.

Thanks to Mariiii the Jungle Monster for the Pandemonium pics. By the way, we all know from Milton’s Paradise Lost that Pandemonium is the capital of Hell, the place where all the demons live. Coincidence? CLEARLY NOT.
