Why Acid Ted?

“The “acid ted” was the timewarp kid who wasn’t hip enough to change with the times. The idea was that the neophte ravers in bandanas and Day-Glo T-Shirts shouting “acieed!” and dancing on the tables at the tacky nightclub Camden Palace were the equivalent of forty-year old teddy boys with fifties-style rockabilly quiffs, drainpipes and brothel creepers.” Generation Ecstasy:Into the World of Techno and Rave Culture” by Simon Reynolds
