I always thought it was illegal to put "Fashion, Northern, 1970s" in the same sentence. :unsure: :D Posted Image


don't know about illegal.........................but certainly an oxymoron.

"Those who have adopted the baggy pants / vest look as being reminiscent of the era are making use of little more than a short lived snapshot in time."

true ... but it was my, and many others point in time ... lasted around 5 to 6 years as a main "look" drifting away over a 10 year span.... who would have thought then that "northern soul" would be around 40 years later anyway .. so "fashion " was bound to change ... however it is the only true "visual" and identifyable identity northern soul has had... like it or not ? we had our clothes tailor made and "spencers" were the off the peg versions ... and were frowned on at first....

As far as current venues go, long live those that are still pushing the boundaries as they are the ones that remain true to the spirit of what once was.

as for pushing the boundaries some of them have pushed so hard they have fallen off the edge lol :thumbsup: but hey, thats another story and discussion i guess :) ?

You say you are just "you" and you are not trying to dress like anyone from "back in the day" then there is no need to reply to my post as you would have felt that l was talking about some one else/others......dress however you like:thumbsup: ...to me the oldies crowd are not about the music........just about a moment in their youth that they like to relive......each to their own..........one other thought, maybe.....should a person be judged by how good/bad they dance. ie is that person dancing to say "look at me,look at how good l am" .....the person l admire is the one who dances to a tune however which way.........but from the love of the music........go to lifeline you,ll see some shit,but honest dancers doing it from the heart:thumbsup: atb peggy



Perhaps you were not talking about me, like i said before im a Rockabilly girl who likes my own look & has been into 60s rare Soul since the early 80s, :) , but i do like an oldies night & you were talking about my partner & alot of my good friends who are into the oldies & do like to dress in this way, some of these people have been into the music since the 70s, so how can you say that the oldies crowd are not about the music?????? :yes:

I would like to go to Lifeline, because i think i would really enjoy the music, but i just don't think i would be very welcome (because of the way i dress), the oldies crowd are very friendly & except folk for who they are :yes: ..................Here is a bit of an example, we went to another night that was not just oldies & a couple of Psychobilly's came in, i got talking to them, they told me that they really liked 60's Soul music, they were a really nice couple, but folk were coming up to me & saying, "What are they doing in here" & "look at them!"..................so what's that all about!.........................The only thing i can't stand is the snobbery :no: people should be excepted, no matter what they wear :yes:
The oldies crowd are always getting digs from certain folk on here.............i put some photo's on the gallery a few weeks back & some nasty woman had to make a rude comment :huh: , & just because folk dress the way they do, & im quite sure i am included in this, because i don't dress conventional (this is not directed at you Peggy).

As for the dancing....................i love all kinds of dancing, from all era's :yes: i like to do Ballroom/Latin/Lindy comp, so i just love to watch fantastic dancers, & the places i go to, i do see some fabulous dancers who are passionate about the music :thumbsup:

Debbie x


on the subject of friendly crowds.........they are most friendly at places like lifeline....of that you can be sure. In my experience of oldies crowds (obviously not all ) they have been very hostile when a dj plays a few 60's things that they don,t know....they've been up on stage demanding "play something we know "...."play some oldies big oldies". I,ve seen this happen on quite a few occasions.......upfront places play a fair amount of oldies usually underplayed gems ect which the punters accept and enjoy quite happily.....see ya at lifeline...peggy

May have lasted 6 years for some, but for me it lasted little longer than a year and had ceased by the time 'spencers' were available.

My memories between '73 and '76 were of a progressive scene. It was contemporary and it was ever changing. Those are the ideals that I still hold dear. I have no wish to hold onto a snapshot in time, and I spend far more time and money than I ought seeking out 'new' sounds.

I would guess that my own views are probably atypical, and I have no wish to try and influence anybody else. Enjoying what you do is what matters.

Peace and love.

Ah yes my old mucker Johnny Cockrill - he invited me to join but I don't do Facebook - too much sharing of personal information for my liking.....

About St Ives; I had planned to go but since discovering that its not an all nighter and that its £8.50 (& that's with the discount from the Cambridge Soul Collective) for just 6 hours (8pm to 2am) I've decided to go to Lifeline in Wolverhampton instead (£10 for 10 hours!).

BTW do we know each other? I only ask because we seem to have mutual aquaintences.

Had trousers made to measure at a tailors in the Corn Exchange in Leeds.

Not sure of his name now but he was on the old balcony area.

First pair were grey cord high-waisters with about 20 pockets. Loved them so much I cut the waist band down when high waist was going out of fashion.

Had at least 5 other pairs made by him including 40" bags in black and moving on to pegs in two tone.

Great bloke, just said "get material you want from the market and I'll make whatever you like."

I'd be interested to know if anyone else on SS went to him as he seemed to know all about the fashion of the soul scene mid-late 70's.

Are any of these trousers Skinners?


I think they are probably the cheap copies that were around at the time. Genuine Skinners were paralell, even though they were quite wide. If worn properly, they looked good. Unfortuantely, none of those divs are wearing them properly. They also look as if they haven't been washed for a while.

Northern and scooter scene mid seventies fashion shots.....note patchwork jeans,abundance of DM's (who ever wore platforms on the street),denim jackets,beer towels (worn on the parkas) and worn by soulies in belts, why???? (heard it was a northern working class thing), feather hair,red socks,badges (patches of northern soul clubs/northern scooter clubs),sheepskins and long leather jackets.Football scarves were popular.

the picture outside blackpool mecca my bro (phil morgan ) is the one sitting on the steps think the dj is tony jebb x
