Cave9 came about at the very beginning of January 2004 in a small terraced house in Stoke on Trent.
A place for people who were misunderstood is what was born.
And now we find ourselves some months down the line as an expanding group of friends.
United in the pursuit of truth, peace and harmony, the love of music, creativity and learning, the fascination with mind expansion and the ever present chattering of all manner of random bollox.....
So why cave 9? I hear you cry....
Well - the core of our membership met during the course of 2003 on an msn chat room called Cloud 9. Without entering into detail, a body of people were, over the course of several months, kicked off the cloud. In our indignation we created a new msn community that represented why we had been kicked off the narrowminded and paranoid cloud 9. In short we were kicked off for speaking our minds and those minds were all similar in that they were open. We chose the name Cave9 to pay homage to where we had all met and also to represent our relationship to the planet and all things cavey.
The term Cave conjurs up all kinds of images but for the creators of Cave9 it represented a place that was a shelter from life's storms, it represented a dark place that was full of colour and beauty. It represented a place where treasures could be hidden and only those that knew about the cave would be able to see them.
