Well if the National Treasure ain't got a ticket, he ain't getting in! I might make an exception for Muzzy Izzet and Walshy though.

Hi Ady ,

are the doors open at 22.00hrs for the Anniversary ?

Looking forward to re-charging my "Soul batteries" with some of those sublime sounds, after missing the last two events.

Is this the quickest sell-out yet ?

regards Frank

A small, but perfectly formed group of ageing enthusiasts from the Potteries, will be convening in the Blue Posts first....

Having booked the train tickets last Sunday, when we hadn't slept for nearly 28 hours, following Rugby allnighter, it appears that we will now be arriving in London at 5.30pm, so we'll be in The Blue Posts about 6pm.......... Oh dear !

:thumbup:  Early doors Blue Posts it is then!

 

I'll have a small selection of vintage 45's cases (30 - 100 capacity) with me if anybody is after one.  Be nice to get shot of 'em before descending those stairs.

OK, what I was about to say (but somehow produced multiple duplicates of my previous post instead) was...

 

If it's your first visit and you're planning on a pre-niter bevy in the Blue Posts - get the right BP as there are several and folks have visited the wrong one before  Junction with Newman St and Eastcastle St (just behind the 100 Club) is the one that is used. 

 

:hatsoff2: - Kev

 

Thanks for removing the duplicate posts Mike. :thumbsup:

Never have I been so gutted in all my life not to get to the 100 club..

I booked my flights in January and its always the first thing that gets marked up on the year planner so as not to miss it, I have spent all week getting all my work prepared for the week after so that I would have a trouble free weekend, even went and got my hair cut, clothes ironed and bag packed in lots of time. Never have I been so excited to meet up with all my friends that I only see once in a blue moon, enjoy a few drinks in the Blue posts, and then on to the dance floor at the 100 club, and the conversations at early Hrs on outside on Oxford St...

The weather forecast looked like fog coming in late afternoon, so I called the airport to see what the outcome would be, I asked to be put on an earlier flight as I didn't want to miss getting off the Island, I was told that the fog would miss Guernsey and not to worry.......How wrong they were, just wish now that I had gone with my gut feeling and got that earlier flight,....one by one all the flights got canceled, mine being the last, I could have got the ferry but getting in to Weymouth at 12.10 and no trains until 7.00am would have been pointless, I thought about bringing the car, but would have cost an arm and a leg and I would have got to the 100 club at 3am and would not have been able to get back until Monday..

Gutted, Gutted, Gutted...I hope you all had a fantastic night, missed you all and hope to see you at the next one in November, weather permitting.

I know I'm getting old because the anniversary allnighter seems to come round quicker than ever. One minute it's the NYE Va Va Voom, next thing it's September.

 

After last month's nighter when I'd had to leave early because I felt ill, I was looking forward to this one for a full ration of good music.

 

Being an anniversary, the night started an hour early at 10 pm, I got there at about 10.15. As usual Trickster had beaten me to it. Keith Money was spinning some tunes and keeping the pace fast and frantic. A bit later Mick Smith, on one of his now fairly rare visits, took over.

 

The dance floor began to fill up pretty quickly, and remained that way through the night, right up t the end in fact.

 

While all the DJs did sterling work, my favourite set was the first one by Butch, he played some of my favourites: Jean Carne's I Wanna Know, Martha Jean Love's Old Time Lover (2 of my real favourite dance tunes), United Sounds' It's All Over (Baby), Hopkins' Brothers, My Salvation, Chuck Jackson cover up, etc. Had me out there dancing. He started his second set with Kell Osborne's Law Against A Heartbreaker (the intro to that always reminds me of Otis Redding's Respect), and included The Hurting Is Over, the Detroit Emeralds' Beware, which I really like, Love You Baby by Paulette, and ended his set with his Little Caesar cover up, wonderful stuff indeed!

 

There was a good mix of music, while predominantly oldies, there were many that I didn't know, plenty of underplayed ones, and hardly any of the “usual suspects”, great records though the latter are we've heard them a lot.

 

As usual for an anniversary it was really packed, therefore quite hard to find people you knew were there. So it was quick hello to many of my friends when I saw them. The usual stalwarts were there of course, Trickster, Gary and Rolly, Tabs, Eddie Hubbard, etc. I did chat to a very nice couple, the lady hadn't been before, but I'm really embarrassed to admit that I can't remember their names, she told me how much they'd enjoyed it. Shame Andy couldn't get there because of the fog, I can imagine how upset he was, rotten when you look forward to something so much to have it snatched away at the last minute due to circumstances beyond your control.

 

Before you knew it Ady was playing Baby I Need Your Loving and it was time to venture out into Oxford Street and head home. I got indoors about 7.50 and got my head down for a few hours. A really good night (but that is what we've come to expect), Pretty good going for a club to last that long when you think about it. I wonder how many other venues playing music that hasn't mass appeal have been going that long? Well done to Ady and the other DJs for entertaining us, great music, and well done to all who've gone there in that time and helped keep it going.

As usual Geoff a sterling report on the night’s shenanigans.

Always a pleasure to chat to you.

Take care and see you in November, if not before.

Dead chuffed to get the Cavaliers as the 45 for this years bash, a great track from the superb PP cd.

Really enjoyed the night with Ady, Mick and Roger on top form. However, nothing personal but I've got to perform a bit of soul heresy with both Butch and Keith falling rather short for me. There was some fantastic sprinklings thru' their sets, Jean Carter, Kell Osbourne, Deon Jackson and Royal Robbins but for me strange dance instrumentals and poor vocals on sub standard  funk b sides just don't do it . Surely the point of an anniversary do is drag out some of 'your' best known things from the last God knows how many years and give them another airing, 'Just Brothers- Go on and laugh' being possibly one of the best records I've ever heard down those stairs, 'Blendells- Did you mean' also springs to mind and Keiths' rather marvellous Chris Bartley acetate from a few years ago. 

Clearly tho' Im in a minority, maybe I'm the old croc these days with a rather black and white view of what Northern soul actually is. Still, 34 years tho eh? What a ride! 

 

All the best.

Jim.

I'd love to have heard the Just Brothers' Go On And Laugh, but not sure Butch still has it. I heard it at Prestatyn in the Carl & Maria rare room played by another DJ (might have been Colin Laws but not sure). I'm assuming there is only one acetate of it.

its SOUL Jim, but not as we know it....get with the programme my friend....we gotta keep moving....all the sounds you mention are awesome, however its important to keep discovering new sounds, the dance floor in Butch's sets never wained thru out so I think that speaks volumes......was personally impressed that the Butchmeister managed to throw in these things when you may have expected 100% nostalgia.....

Not sure I wanted, or indeed expected 100% nostalgia Russ, strange how your immediately perceived as an 'Oldies fan' when you voice an opinion regarding 'newer' spins.

Of course it's important to broaden the spectrum, I realise that and thank God for it, but theres a big difference between Soul and Dance. Mind you saying that, hasn't the Northern scene always wrestled with that one! I'll stick with my programme I think!

 

All the best.

Sorry Jim, the nostalgia comment wasnt aimed at you personally, just a general comment that at anniversary events any where thats what I expect & look forward to within that context....strange how people immediatly think that its an  oldies newies issue when ever I comment on these things, it isn't....it was a brilliant night & all the DJ's added to the musical melting pot.

 

All the best Russ

Goddam you Croasdell, that Cavaliers 45 is as catchy as hell,

I must have overplayed it already as my 4 year old went off to school singing it today.

 

Tremendous.

That was a terrific night, I really enjoyed the music, the crowd and the attitude. Rammed from 11pm to the finish and not too sweltering, the new air condition definitely worked. The music was varied across rareties, oldies, 60s, 70s, funk, beat ballads and trad stompers. Well done DJs I couldn't have asked for more. Sweden, France, Switzerland, Scoitland and Cornwall were all well represented and some lovely old friends from the past made it special.

 

On a personal note the highlight was stepping over a bag on the very dark stage, to find that my foot was descending into fresh air and experiencing that sinking feeling that Wiley Coyote has most times he chases the Road Runner. The faces of the people who realised they were going to get about 17 3/4 stone of Ady landing on, or near, them in a fraction of a second was most entertaining. Luckily I got up pissing myself laughing while those around looked very concerned. I could have really injured myself but just got a bruised knee and was playing cricket a few hours later; I wasn't even pissed at that stage. Thanks to all who sympathised. An enlightening experience I don't ever want to repeat.

 

See you in November if you fancy more.

 

Ady

Back to work for me with another 100 Club under the belt. There was a few tunes I expected to be played at the Anni, and they were. Some tunes may have been slightly leftfield for some, but to me it added a bit to the variety of the night.Managed to chew the fat briefly with Keith at the coffee bar on train, poor man looked shattered lol Had to laugh at the birds that arrived and didn't know what to do with the records handed to them. I nearly disposed of them for them. Had the usual blast and can't wait till the next one. H

What a night! Haven't missed a 6ts in 5 years and it was the best night yet. And yes, Ady, you dived but what a recovery. A relevent SOUL night still buzzing. Cant wait for Crossfire. Thank you.

After a bit of thinking and asking a few other folks, here is Butch's sets at the anniversary.

sister lee, kell osborne-law, cresa watson, jesse james-are you gonna leave me, paulette-love you baby, delreys inc-destination, limitations-lonely, perfections-just cant leave you, diane lewis c/u, jean carter, martha j love, hytones-good news, royal imperials-heart is hurtin, chymes-new 6ts, chuck jackson c/u, emeralds-beware, tiaras-op art, big bo-gotta go, proffs, arthur willis, bettye swann c/u, parliaments-rainy day, salt & pepper, united sounds, hopkins brothers, chuck stephens-praying ( and TWO funky sounding records....the appointments-steppin closer & funky inst.)  ....."falling rather short" was he?

Have a good look at that list and tell us why two funky style records mixed in between them would make it a sub-standard set.
