... smile! Check out this site, being a bit "jaded" recently with northern web sites on the internet it was a pleasure ....nah not a pleasure but a f****** joy to come across this one. SOUL GENERATION is the name, and while not coming from a 100% northern (as in music style) angle, it is to me one of the best have visited in a long while. Have been meaning to mention it for weeks, but it was that good wanted to add some words just to praise site rather than a quick mention. Check out the features, well written, informative, thought provoking and enjoyable, the KFC one and Nina Simone being highlights Top Tens, events and more sections all look good read good and undoubtely do you good The Excavations section to me fits in better with what I consider Northern is about. The constant search for decent quality 45s by soul fans, not afraid to pass on tips, no big wallet required. Just plain old soul music searched and talked about by soul fans. Spreadin and building up sounds by word of mouth, passing on info and tips , and so on. Not like some who seem think its just a case of shelling out $$, sponging info on web sites from others and then passing off as own "discoveries" without any credit ot acknowledgment. Design, layout, the look, the way it works all 100% and best tribute I can give it, is if this site is half as good when finished, will be happy As stumbled across this when just have visited some of the most cheesiest sites ever, why do people think that we want more scans of tatty 70s badges, sound clips of the bloody right track, whole northern web side at times sounds and looks like a online version of Phoneix Nites. When saw this site as said, it was like a breath of fresh air. Hats off to all involved a definite "come get to this" for the "soul Fan"! and the link is VISIT SOUL GENERATION know my words are not to every ones taste so heres their own: A new online site devoted to crate digging, deepfunk, northern soul from deep to northern stompers, mod jazz, soul food cookery, art, hip hop and whatever else we are feelin. This is my interpretation of soul - anything goes so long as it has that special something that moves you. Inside you will find the soul kitchen filled with recipes from the deep south and beyond, interviews with recording artists and illustrators/artists, excavations from the crates, top tens, audio clips, club listings and lots more.
