If haven't checked it out yet, can watch the famous northern soul patrol on web. Funniest thing on tv since that thing on breakfast tv that involved a pie in a bread roll.....
Both clips are up on bbc choice site - also linked in the new video player section (under testing but seems solid)
Heres what Johnny V says on site about them
"And Soul Patrol, theyre back arent they? Yes! I just love Northern Soul. I always have done. The first time I saw it I knew I was observing a phenomenon. It was a kind of working class dance movement, a forerunner to Rave. It was about you, your state of mind and a driving beat. It was a movement that passed by everyone in the South because the London music crowd never ventured North and there were no magazines then like The Face, or the internet to bring everyone in touch. This is another reason I see value in it. Where did you get the guys from? I cant reveal the source of them but we will be bringing out action figures. Theyre going to be the new Power Rangers, solving crime to the power of the beat. "
