Was working in London this week so decided to drop in on the 100 Club Christmas bash. As it happens a young lady who works with me has been a bit curious about the Northern scene and I've been doing a couple of Cd's that she plays when getting together with her mates.

Leading her down the hallowed stairs to the legendary venue reminded me of what it was that so captivated me 35 years ago when I first climbed the stairs to the Stars and Stripes Club in Yate. More of that later.

We got there around 9:15 and the room was quiet, Mick Smith was resolutely turning out the party favourites, by the time Adey joined in the fun with his first session of Christmas related tunes the room was starting to fill. Then Irsh Greg exploded the atmosphere and the floor stayed packed the whole night, right up until the lights came on at 2.

Normally I grumble about hearing the same oldies all the time, but tonight in the eye of my young companion I saw the wonder of the scene reborn. She knew none of the tunes, apart from the odd one or two that were on the Cd's I had done. She danced to songs that she didn't know, but just embraced the atmosphere, clapping along with everyone else to Lend a Hand. And tonight I just enjoyed everything. 

Something for everyone, some things I hadn't heard before (or couldn't remember knowing :-) ) some things I never thought I would hear at a Soul doo ever again but the night just worked.

Just a final comment on the Technology of the youth, in my day I carried a small notepad to jot down the tunes I knew I needed to remember after the event and once the fog had cleared from my addled brain. She just installed Spotify and it found every tune she wanted, even putting up an image of the 7" along side the title and artist. which was quickly added to a playlist for later. Amazing.

So to summarise my ramblings, the night was a mix of old and new, great fun, great atmosphere and has started a new soulie on her journey. Everything you could want from a night out.
