a closer look at the "dance party"

I thought I'd give folks a closer look at some of the characters in one of my latest Splotch Monster pieces, called Dance Party (30" x 22", mixed media on wc paper). See anyone you might know?

In the meantime, a vid from waaaay back in 1991, featuring the legendary (then unknown) Autechre playing out to a club of British ravers a couple of years before they even released their first album, and many many years before their music morphed into the complex, abstract (and highly non-danceable) sound that is is today.  Fascinating, if not amusing stuff. Thanks to Gabe from Merck Fragments for the tip.
