visiting Tessa in London, this was the only party I attended during my visit, but it had a packed house party feel and a lot of fun. A much more intimate alternative to the big club parties some people were encouraging me to attend. Public transport in London is superb so getting there was not a problem. What I didn't realize was that I was heading into the legendary Butterfly studios. A house, really. The discovery of E costing about half as much as you can find in the states - and very pure. A happy time indeed with Tessa and my new friends David and Anya. Bubbly dub courtesy of Dr. Paterson wafted as we entered the packed yard.. The "butterfly wings" inside the house was a sweatbox, but as usual in the U.K., it rained up a storm and a very tribal feel in Youth's backyard ensued.... - @Om* 10/2/00
