Reviews - Lowton - North and South and More On Weekend


Reviews - Lowton - North and South and More On Weekend

Story so far .....

Lowton - North and South - Top Nite - Full ish review on happenings and plays plus can hear last 30 mins of final spot -

Wilton - Reports say great nite as usual with classy music from the residents and guests.

100 Club - Been told Saturdays niter had great atmosphere and as always great sounds

Weekend - As said before there were three top drawer events on this weekend,

100 club niter, Wilton Niter and Lowton mini-niter, which must have made it a

hard call for lovers of quality rare soul , to decide where to go. Myself,

well as Lowton was the closest and as it was a one off featuring 4 of CSC djs

guesting it had to be that one.

Well my view looking back on it all is .............an outstanding nite!

One of the most enjoyable nites have had in a long while, everything seemed to

come together, Djs seemed to be on a mission, lot of only see once in a while

faces made the trip, an appreciative dancefloor, yeah for me all things

combined and made it a great nite.

Format of the nite was North And South, with 4 of Capitol Soul Club DJs

making journey up from the Dome and five from the North playing at home


Line up went something like

Paul Baldwin & Dave Holt

Ian Cunliffe

Missed these spots as didnt get in to late, anyone fill in details?

Stuart Tyler - Though made determined effort to get there early enough

to catch a full set from Stuart T, as missed his last 2 at dome, failed miserably!

Managed to catch last 20 mins or so, which included

Gladys Tyler - A Little Bitty Girl - Decca

Exits - I Dont Want To Hear It - Gemini

Deadbeats -No Second Chance-strata

Arthur Fenn - First time caught him for years, started off with Black Wings Have

My Angel and continued with a well strong mix of rare 60s and classy 70s

Terry Davis - Havent heard him for a while as last two events went to he

didnt show .

Didnt catch a lot as was record barring and R+B-ing , but did catch Soul Sounds

as Eddie Parker -Love You Baby

David Flynn - What was Mr Flynn up to, was expecting a fairly balanced set,

you know like a few safe plays thrown in......

But werent to be. It was like he was on a mission, spent the whole spot under

a constant attack of top quality one offs, rarities and stormers.

soulful stuff

Threw at us loads of highlites, the headturning old wigan spin Isonics-

Sugar, that sounded awesome, CSC anthem almost - Im In With The Downtown Crowd,Chick, Chick never sick of hearing that 30 sec chick chick break, and

finishing with great ender for the nite - let me down easy,

Save me typing as sick of it - check out link for chance to hear last 35 mins

of his set, more from nite in pipeline

R&B room - Paid it a fair few visits (hence blanks above) and caught

Alan H, Pete Coulson, Mark Morgan, Barry J and others in action in the room.

with loads of current popular R+B floor fillers being dished out, along with

some good quality first hears, dont think ever seen so many excello 45s :),

Modern room- A few visits and seemed to be doing the business with some bang

up to date examples of quality soul, DJs included Colin Curtis & Bary

Maleedy etc

Spotted a set of bongos up next to decks, didnt see them getting used,

though guy was behind them, so still wondering what that

was all about? Anyone?

Crowd - Crowd wise - was told about 350 in, bit lower than normal but as other

quality events

such as Wilton and 100 on at weekend must had an effect, plus noticed a bit of

a difference in crowd make up compared to last time I went.

Dancefloor - Never saw it rampacked but was used through out, and

during the early hours when normally a big drop off in numbers there was still

plenty of action on a par with last time

Overall - Well have said what I thought, all of lot was with, agreed in

it being a great nite. Dont get chance much to hear a lot of the Domes spins

elsewhere but all sounded just as strong.

Future - Well after tonite and also recent Nantwich niter, well seems like

things are looking good, have heard so many soul fans recently moan about

tired old oldies, lazy "top" djs, well will just say the answer is

out there!

Hit here to listen to last 35 mins of Alan h who did the finishing hour

Hit here to stream

or go to soul sounds/live sessions to download

Hopefully 3 x more sessions from this nite soon!
