99p soul is back for a super spectacular night of soul music to raise funds for the afasic youth project for one night only we magically become 3.99p soul 3.99p soul at the betsey trotwood 56 farringdon rd, london ec1 8pm till 1am 3.99 on the doorfacebook.com/99psoul special guests galore including the smashing mister fish kind words from ross allen..."The night before I had been in a very different enviroment but one that has always been a favourite of mine. Rob Ryan invited me to the 99p Soul Club, it is occasionall, at the Betsey Trotwood, Farringdon Road. It is one of those nights that take me back to early days of my life in the night. A basement (always the best spot for a dance), a half decent sound system, some great music and a bunch of people that love that music. It wasn't some hyped, packed event but several groups of people coming together to share a love of music. The music was a mix of Northern, Jazzy and more modern soul, there must have been 50/60 people there but it was brilliant. Everyone was into it, some tunes where huge and some super obscure, they were all greeted with a mixture of respect and joy. It was really good to see and hear such an event and reminded me of nights in another basement just down the road in The Metropolitan way back in 1987. The night was called Sole and featured Bob Jones (he of the previous missive), Ian Clark and Wayne M... another basement, another set of old soul and another set of music lovers. It's odd DJing, you always want the night to be ram packed and an air of euphoria when the night is on/ending but as a punter you love it when you have room to dance and chat and people are playing the music that works in a small room. Not some dickhead pretending to play music that will move 1000's and has no real mood, soul or feeling but just beats you into submission in one never ending track that breaks up and down to create that/those moments of euphoria - to me they most often seem to be false... to quote Trouble Funk - Lets Get Small Y'All... Props to everyone involved in the 99p Soul Club. Cheap and very cheerful..." and rob's records from february's do Porgy and the monarchs - the girl and the boy Bernard smith - man without a people Mixed sugar - it's a bad feeling Terry Bryant - you'd ether straighten up and fly right Jack Jacobs - I believe its alright Little Carl Carlton - two timer Light drivers - dreams of a shoeshine boy Elijah sterling - the girl I fell in love with Albert jones - fifteen cent love Joe McLean - let's talk about love Bobby jones - Talkin' 'bout jones Gifted four - are you choosing Curtis liggins - what it is Rayford tucker -if you need more time The exits - under the streetlamp George Wilson - here stands the man who needs you Public company - got to touch your face Eugene gaspard - holding on Jimmy Ellis - happy to be Carl Carlton -I can feel it Viola wills - the first time Marjorie Ingram - another woman involved George franklin Smallwood - hey mama Charles Beverly - don't you want a man like me Don Hannah - I got your number Ernie Johnson - disco music Wilson love - funny money Four tracks - charade Dawn and sunset - what it is The chaumonts - love is the thing Brothers of soul - hurry not linger Phew !
