Hey Up Chalky 'n' Mace

Reserve my usual table near the unisex toilets if you please, my old colostomy bay needs changing more frequently these days and it would be most unfair of me to expect Louise to have to walk to far to empty it out, wouldn't it now

I'm finding it quite hard to say something new about Lifeline, it just keeps delivering great soul music, surely music for all soulful tastes.

 

Firstly thanks to Lynn for picking me up from Kettering station, and to Irish and Kerry for their company and banter in the car both ways.

 

It was about 10ish when we got there, and the car park was full so Lynn had to park on the road outside. Obviously it was going to be busy, and it was. A nice tribute to the work of Andy and co, it seems the move to Bidds has worked out well.

 

Unfortunately we missed the first DJ Nick Stevenson; Matt Sneath was playing upfront sounds when we arrived.

 

Cliff followed on from Matt, usual high standard, ended his set with Count The Days and the Martiniques.

 

Soul Sam took over from Cliff and played quite a few of the records he'd played at the Boomerang all-dayer, mainly Modern Soul and a funky one or two. Plus favourites like Joseph Webster, Tommy Dent, Joseph Henry, and the Poets (I'd just came back into the room when I heard the intro to this, almost flew to the dance floor). He ended his set with a classic oldie that I, and judging by the dance floor, many others never tire of, Can't Get Over These Memories by John & The Weirdest.

 

Danny Price was next behind the decks and played a real nighter set, most of which I didn't know but enjoyed. I think Danny's DJ'd at Burnley allnighter. He played a few I did know: Frederick Knight's Stepping Down, the Mystics' Put Out The Fire, Love Ain't Nothing (?Johnny Nash) and Determination by the Fabulous Apollos.

 

Then it was Andy Dyson's set, and very nice it was too. Andy played a mix of his top tunes: Tommy & The Derby's, Sir Joe, Hopkins Brothers and loads that I didn't know but liked, one was credited to Betty Swann but it's a cover up, slightly reminiscent of Wash And Wear Love.

 

The fourth guest James Pogson was next, and he played a blinder, starting with People by Ellipsis. He's got some good records: John Harris's Hangin' In, Sugar Boy's Free Man, Doc Peabody, Mystics, Hopkins Brothers, Billy Byrd, etc. and kept the floor busy. But it had been busy for most of the night, everyone seemed up for having a good time and enjoying the music.

 

Finally for the last hour and a quarter Chalky was the man. He played a set of mixed tempos, including the recent Kent issue of the unreleased Toussaint McCall track I Laughed Till I Cried, definitely want to get that one. He ended with Kae Williams' Our Love Is Dying, great ender.

 

I managed to shuffle around to Kae Williams but my legs had gone at that point, I think that sitting down for 30 minutes or so didn't help, should have stayed standing.

 

Kerry said that everyone had seemed very friendly, and that was my experience too. Loads of my friends but others I didn't know but they were happy to chat with me, or at least I hope they were. It was good to see so many people there, and the dance floor was busy the whole time I was there. Quite a few of my friends from the 100 Club and a contingent from Boomerang as well. It's good to see people from all over the country united in a love for soul music.

 

I only popped in the Pow Wow room for a short time, I'd like to spend more time there but didn't want to miss what was happening next door. The two room policy of combining the two clubs is working well I think, something for everyone. Thanks to Cliff, Andy and Chalky for playing my requests, hope they didn't mind but if you know a DJ has got tunes you like you might as well ask.

 

We left at the end and I was back in Kettering to catch my first train to London at 8.09, so once again thanks Lynn. I got home at 11.10 looking forward to a relaxing day.

 

Lifeline seems to be going from strength to strength, well done Andy and the guys. Thanks also to the bar staff who were most pleasant. My only criticism was that the dance floor was not as “slidey” as it was in April, perhaps it needs a polish just before the next Lifeline, that of course is down to Bidds, but you were still able to dance okay. Certainly not as sticky as the 100 Club floor often is at the end of the night.

 

Now looking forward to the next one at the end of October.

Big Thanks to promoters, and all concerned ,Another fantastic night ,enjoyed all the sets,but the standout set for me was James Pogson,awsome selection of records,and well put together, obscure--well known-60"s-70"s +.It was great to see Sam doing the business again,next one October,if you not been to Lifeline its well worth a visit.

Increasingly difficult for me to do anything on a Saturday night, let alone an all nighter, but Lifeline is one I make an effort for, not only a great night, but good to see a healthy number in - Looking forward to October!!

It really looks like the move to 'Bidds' has paid off in a very positive manner. Top night, busy in all areas and a GREAT mix of music from all the DJs. Forward looking and fresh.

Brilliant night musically & socially, just a couple of gripes, dancefloor too sticky & needs sorting, keep the drinks off the dancefloor & keep the odd irritating/ annoying dick with the drinks high fiving everyone out of peoples faces etc, cos sooner or later someone will get sick of it and high five them but not how they expect. :boxing: :facepalm:

Spot. :shades:

Yeah got to agree with Spot there...one dickhead got in under the radar.......harmless I suppose but irritation can escalate especially when my listening and dancing pleasure has to take a back seat.

Otherwise my two monthly outing well worth it..great music in Pow Wow..good to see a few old friends.

Totally agree the dancefloor is your own private place keep your socialising off it. Quality night though both musically and socially. Best Paul

I never noticed him being irritating or a problem to people if it is the same person I am thinking off.  He did say it was the best night out ever and the best music he has ever heard.  I even played the copy of "Theme From Shaft"  he'd just bought for him  :lol:

 

Please say something and we will sort it.

Are we talking about Callum per chance?

;o)

Though to be honest I would prefer seeing the odd high five than folk making pretend pointy mountain shapes with their arms raised above their heads whilst Jonathan Capree was being played...bit like a fcuked up YMCA dance routine IMO!

Must be a Southern thing.....

Northern humour involved force feeding Andy Dyson a joke packet of popping candy that was supposed to froth up and force it's way out of his mouth and nose....greedy fecker swallowed half, rest went all over his shirt making him look like a coke head having a seizure....

Nice to see a good few DJs turning up to support us after finishing their other local duties....nice gesture and much appreciated chaps!

One thing's for certain...

October 25th = Rammed

Nuff said......

Karl now come on, I told you about him after he looked through Andy's box at the £200 Metros & you said he spent a tenner with Dave R, remember I said he was bothering Gail & Donna (Not aggressively, just bloody annoyingly & you know what Gail's like if she takes umbridge), let's be fair he was annoying a lot of people, specially women, and there are Doormen plus enough in the Promoting Team to be watching for the odd ass, remember tempers fray quickly so they may not be time to make an incident report before someone kicks off. To some he may seem harmless and I'm sure he was but others threatening or intimidating (Unknown quantity, could be a mad axe murderer for all we know) and not just annoying. :hatsoff2: 

Spot. :shades: 

p.s. Karl if he'd have been to the local Derby & Joan or Mecca Bingo it would also have been the best night ever in the History of the world for him.  :g: 

p.p.s. Mace, nice sidestep for a promoter, not really bothered who he is, just don't indulge him/them/whoever and yes was rammed but don't take to much for that to change I'm afraid. :no:

Top night, nice to see Soul Sam behind the decks. Music and crowd were excellent. Just a small fringe of funk, but Andy and Chalky kept it real for me imo. Third time for me being there just gets better and better. There was one lad who came up to me face to face, he was there last time. i wanted to put him on his ball bag but he did apologised to me later. After a conversation with him he seems a really nice guy. Hes not really into the scene, hes just over whelmed by the music and dancing all night. Hes totally harmless, is like a baby on his mothers tit, sucks but dont bite. So go easy on him if hes out and about next time. once again top night to all involved  billy

Well at least I now know who you were referring to Spot.....whereas I saw or heard nothing on the night though I was in Pow Wow for 95% of night....hence the 'side stepping' comment of daft dance routines).

 

The guy in question apparently spent a fair bit of time in Pow Wow.....I know cus he approached me in the main room at the end of the night overwhelmed by the music in both rooms and saying he was celebrating his 40th birthday and he'd had the best night ever, he did attempt a few high fives and so forth, but nothing I felt intimidated or worried about. 

 

If he upset and of the ladies present, or grown men actually felt intimdated by him, then why not address it with Andy, myself or at least Stocko the doorman, who is more than capable with dealing with such matters.....maybe you did, I'm not clear as it seems like you passed comment of his record purchasing habits to Chalky, but I certainly didn't hear anything about it (woops....another massive side-step I suppose!).

 

But hey, it's much easier to come on here stirring a big shit pot and calling promoters out for there failings ain't it...?

 

For your info, he told me he was from Market Harborough and had frequented the 100Club, as well as Kings Hall and a few other venues (possibly Hinkley?).....seems he wasn't a local townie who stumbled on a soul club in the middle of an industrial estate......he also told me he was on Soul Source so maybe he will come on the thread and post his apologies for being over the top and upsetting a few folk....you can all jump in and give him a well deserved cyber kicking at that point......

 

Oh, just for everybodies peace of mind, if he turns up again and has the same floor manner then feel free to have Stocko escort him to the Pow Wow room and leave him with us for the rest of the night.....we quite welcome the more extreme and flamboyant characters in there without getting too uptight about it.........

Just re-read your post......£200 for the Metros!!!!......no wonder he fcuked off to Dave Raistricks box, though he could have moved on another 10 feet and got 20 records for a fiver off Des......

Concerns on the night can be dealt with effectively, criticism on a feedback thread a day later can't.......did you actually voice concerns about his manner to Andy, myself or Stocko (other than ridiculing his record purchasing habits to Chalky)?

Mace if you look you'll see that was my Wife Gail's comment & I wasn't ridiculing the guys record purchase, that was related to me by Chalky as I told him the guy was being a knob & keep an eye on him (He was doing the same at the last one) I also mentioned it to Denise on the door & I'm almost positive I told Andy myself, so other than going around with a megaphone I don't see what else I could do and as you were in the Pow Wow room most of the night I never saw you to comment, I have no idea who Stocko is (Doorman maybe?) but most of the Promotion team & Doormen never venture passed the carpet at the rear of the room so are unlikely to see the odd loose cannon annoying people and as we have hardly missed a Lifeline since Sheridans and travel 200 miles round trip spending £100 to attend the night I thought we had a right to comment but apparently only if it's 100% positive.

 

 Everything you have said in reply to my original post has been tinged with sarcasm and totally opposite to what actually occurred. I'm no keyboard warrior, ours and others peoples concerns were voiced by me on the night to whom I thought were the relevant people and as an aside we were asked to give Bidds another chance (we stopped attending after the debacle of New Years Eve a few years ago) and to voice any problems there was.

Spot. :shades:

Any concerns will be addressed at the next one.  It was not too long after you mentioned it to me Pete I went up to Dj.  I did see him dancing at the time I was on the stage but not being troublesome.  You have every right to voice any concerns and as I said it will be sorted next time.

Spot, Stocko is the doorman and regularly walks the venue and will always address any issues raised in a professional manner.

 

The guy who we seem to be discussing told me it was his first visit to the venue, so not sure how he could have been troublesome last time.....and how come we never heard about it last time?

He was definitely the guy who bought a record for £10 of DR, and he did speak to me for 10 minutes at end of night.

I personally saw no real harm in him, neither did Billy after speaking to him nor Chalky.

 

If we are talking about the same guy, he wasn't a pissed up townie as the first posts seem to infer, he was a soulie from Market Harborough who'd obviously over indulged....and I've seen some regular niter goers in far worse states over the years with no complaints.

 

Of course you have every right to voice concern, and as I have said, I would react to such concerns immediately on the night....but these sort of posts only seem to raise their head on feedback threads days later.....

 

If you did indeed discuss it with Andy Dyson then maybe you should question him personally about it cus I obviously don't have the answers you need to hear.

proper, i loved the tunes and the vibe, it's certainly a lifeline thrown out to those who still like their soul either rare and/or rarely heard out. what the pow-wow lacked in proper soul music it more than made up for in atmosphere and vigour. as for the high-fiver i guess it's the price paid for care in the community :( xx

I for one Love the Pow Wow, But like my mam says it wouldn't do for us all to like the same things. :thumbsup:                                                 

But I like R&B to Funky House, as long as its DANCE music.
