Soon be that time again and dead chuffed that Mark Jones is getting behind the decks for us. Great lad who has supported the night from the get go; plus he has some fine records of course.

Chalky? 50? Never! (I'm only a couple of months behind mate, but look much younger than you obviously).

Promises to be a great night.

With all this talk of inpending landmark birthdays it got me thinking about the future suitability and health and safety requirements of venue's for an aging scene, and by jove i think Grumpy's has unwittingly cracked it !!

The large carpark on a full night still has ample room to park a ambulance with the required 3 metre distance at the rear to load and unload bath chair nighter goers. The low gradient entrance ramp leads to a same level Foyer and dancefloor area. Although any punters requiring a electrical source for mobile dialysis or breathing apparatus may need to provide their own extension leads and adaptor plugs, as most of the Grumpy plug sockets are just for show and the ones that do work are reserved for record dealers (capitlism always prevails :wicked:). Their are no health restrictions imposed on the clientele with the living dead well represented by Robbo and Gaz Kellet :P.

Amongst some of the regular inmates there can be found several respected Soul Source staff the likes of Record Sales Adjutant (head of the soul police) the regal Rod Shard who even on a night off patrols the Grumpy record bar (Orangery if your posh !) sniffing out any counterfeit or bootleg products, resplendent in his long leather jacket generating as much menace as Darth Vader in a Star Wars Trilogy (the force is definitely with him :ohmy:).

Then there's the birthday boy himself, Chalky (Karl) White a respected Soul Source scribe and a man who's phone seems to have an 'APP' for everything (blow jobs apart). The most popular person at the last Grumpy's being mobbed by a large audience all eager to watch the German's lose a penalty shoot out on his tiny hand held screen. Chalky can be found in his customary position next to the window in the record bar with one eye on the vinyl collectors trawling his wares while keeping his other eye on the carpark for any opportunist alloy wheel disc collectors who may venture near his beloved Ford Focus. :lol: and bringing up the rear is SS's newest recruit Lenny "Honey, The Snake has just eaten the kids" Dodson.

The clientele covers all ages with senior citizen Ian Cunliffe and Tony Livesey always on the hussle with their retro record and piazza boxes crammed wth crackly goodies, their latest venture is the installation of car sun roofs at £15 a pop, a scenario brought on following a vinyl less car boot visit from whch they returned with a second hand angle grinder and 35 rolls of out of date cling film. International visitors have included native New Yorker Mr Smithy who surprisingly to both him and us turned up out of the blue, that'll teach him to buy a Russian sat nav off Donald Trump ! there set for one direction only and that's out of the USA!! !If any out of work brickies are reading this then give 'Donny T' a call he's got a big building job on down Mexico way. A few Welshmen have wondered in from time to time often bring Milton Keynes ex -pat Fudge with them (no were not interested in trades by the way), while regular hoards of invading Scots claim to head south in search of musical excellence ? bull shit ! there just checking out house prices for when they make their escape from Sturgeon and the EU's tyranny.:wicked:

The Toilets (soft 2-ply paper rationed on request) clean enough :yes: but not the place to get cornered by 'Winsford Steve' in his new role as ambassador for his home town of Widnes. If he gets you pinned against the urinals you had it. Funnily enough all the eatery's and hostel's he recommends are owned by his family. Recent trip advisor feed back claims one disgruntled punter complained about the lack of heating facilities in his room to which Steve offered as an optional extra to sell him a 60 watt light bulb for a fiver !

Then there's the staff ( a.k.a the non-carers) Dame Joan (Madge) Livesey the boss who's a cross between a dominatrix and a sunday school teacher  when she cracks the whip we all shout Amen! as well as being the curator at one of Wigan's leading institutes on Egyptology (theres more than one ?). Her expertise in the field of ancient relic's makes her the most go to person to discuss Robbo and Gaz's current mummified state. Ably asisted by her co-promoter Phil 'T' a former professional cricketer and bankrupt Peppa Pig Bouncy Castle proprietor. Phil's current state of insolvency is all down  to the amount of punctures incurred following his egging on of young mothers in short skirts and stiletto heels to try and out jump there kids (we'll Cosmo Smallpiece was one of all time Heroes). Phil is head of security and unselfishly misses out on large chunky's of the Grumpy revelry through his numorous sweeps of the large wooden carpark. Protecting the wheel discs , satnav's and fluffy dice of the Grumpy faithful (well we're close enough to Liverpool:wicked:).

Next up is Carl (You Need Hands) Fortnum a qualified wood butcher by trade who always dream't of becoming a pub singer. He often complements his own eclectic DJ sets with a few bars of his own monatone vocals. After struggling to grow a proper moustache and remembering the deep and meaningful lyric's to Stanley Mitchell's "Get It Baby" he realized his was never gonna reach the dizzy hieghts of the seprano on th go-compare advert  thus deciding he'd be better off spinin' 'em, than singin' 'em ! :hatsoff2:Final there's Louise who's slight of hand has robbed many a unsuspecting punter of a full pint of large while securing their wristband. On the odd ocassion when she's been challenged by an irate empty classed punter she's hit them with the phenomenon of "Evaporation" while reassuring them she'll request that the management turn the heatiing down, this hostess with mostess has even been known to force feed inebriated Geordie's with out of date Liquorice, do you know !!

Least we forget, the next victim sorry, guest DJ Mr Mark Jones the only man through his unsurpassed dancefloor action to have  worn out more pairs of white shoes than Chic !:ohmy:  Highly respected amongst his fellow  rare soul collectors he has been conned into throwing all this hard earned reputation away on one night at Grumpy's, We salute you sir :thumbup:

And lastly a big shout out for the hardworking bar staff who clean our mess up during the aftermath. Although, it aparently seems they are  making quite a killing on e-bay with the disgarded wrist watches, exotic pets and prosthetic limbs they've find left behind :wicked:

For those of you I've missed out your time will surely come, I'm watching you !!!! 

Dave

We're all old now - Whilst in the loft searching for an old tape this weekend, I came across the attached PDF (below) with Mr Dave Weldings' name on - 1998 is heading towards 20 years ago! It doesn't seem that long since I would often chuckle to myself whenever anyone said....."Ooo that must have been 'near on' 20 year agoo Len"........('agoo' meaning 'ago' in Northants) 

........£4.00 to get in then / £6.00 now! If compared to cinema ticket prices Grumpy Soul should actually be £11.23 to get in. So folks - It's a bargain to boot! 

Len :thumbsup:

The word on the street is you were recently  seen entering a local Kettering Waxing Parlour to under go a Brazilian apparently following Nina's comment about how nice it was to stroke the newly acquired little reptile ! 

 well you weren't gonna let that scaly skinned little bleeder get all the attention were you!!

 P.S Never put your hand in the linen basket without first lookin' inside, and I bet your buying your daughter a recorder for christmas too !

BREAKING NEWS

Popular northern soul DJ, the effervesent Bob Hindsley has finally been persuaded by his trusty man servant Robbo to climb down from the roof of his house and call a cease to his 3 day hunger strike in protest at Channel 4's guzumping of "The Great British Bake Off" :ohmy: we'll 72 hours without an Eccles Cake is more than any son of the House Of Lancaster should be expected to forego !

While we're on the subject of Eccles Cake , Wikipedia claim Fire Brigade statistics have shown that the re-heating of Eccles Cakes in a Mircowave has  been the cause of several house explosions recently :yes: This is due to the combustibility of the high sugar content in the sticky little bleeders (and only cigarette packets are made to carry a health warning !)

Dear  Readers,please do not try this at home unless you are trying to fund a rather large vinyl purchase of the evil-bay. :wicked:

She never mentioned she was married, by the way you forgot to mention Kendal  Mint Cake (goddam awful stuff).

Give Bob "The Great British Bake Off Will Never Be Over For Me" Hindsley a call, he might be able to create "The Winsford Waffle" ( all homegrown ingredients sourced  from local dealers naturally). :wicked:

Well this guest is a bit late posting...my apologies for that. Had a few things happening, including a weinfest in Germany I'm still recovering from!

Grumpy has my undivided attention now. As you probably know I adore the place, usually propping up the bar chatting to Kev and Sharon and drinking too much beer, with the occasional bit of footwork on the floor in between pints and chin stroking!

It doesn't seem long ago (back in Nov 2011 to be precise) that Phil sent me a message here on SS entitled "Try this Corker....Could be right up your street, hope you can make it...you'll not be disappointed musically though I don't think"

How right you were Phil!! Pleased to call myself a Grumpy Regular and that's honour enough, but to be asked to spin a few is an honour beyond my dreams!

So thanks again Phil & Joan, I trust I can do you justice and will do my own acapella Happy Birthday to Chalky, I know he can't wait.

Blue Nun Phil how passe' I bet you woo'd your lovely wife with a brandy and babycham back in the day you romantic ole' fool :D I bet you drove an XR2 as well !! (before you turned into a Grumpy old man) :wicked:

Babycham was invented by Francis Showering of Shepton Mallet, Somerset during 1953, and was regarded as major contributor to the baby boom of the 1960's and 70's. Although it struggled for many years to gain favour with the hard drinking women in the north of England "don't give me any of that sparkly southern softy shite " they cried as they bit the top of yet another bottle of milk stout and shucked on a piece of coal to make it last longer.

N.B. Vintage Babycham (by that I mean out of date fire damaged stock) is still readily on sale at all Winsford Steve's family owned hostelry's throughout the Widnes diocese.

Sets of lookalike Babycham glasses will be on sale and available from Roger Banks on the night ! :yes:

BTW had did Sharon Spittle's hanging basket's fair in the Runcorn In bloom compition this year ? I bet she never repeated the success of that year we composted her Pertunia's, Percy Thrower eat your heart out !

Think it's near a canal or something mate. (I'm looking into hiring a barge as it's the only way I'd go the same way more than once).

Still I think I can come for a few hours and give Physiological assessment to several of the cast of Lord of the Rings and come with the paperwork for the sectioning of young Mr Welding who due to continued use of cheap headphones listening to all his new releases at home in the Tardis he's now convinced he is a Cybermon ?

Easy was to get to Grumpy. M62 junc 7. Widnes , take 2nd exit A557 follow signs for Widnes town centre. Go straight through traffic lights then keep in left hand lane, follow signs for Runcorn , go over the Widnes bridge and stay in the left hand lane, the road then splits, stay left then turn left over canal bridge turn 1st right then follow road through traffic lights , through busway lights as you go back over canal bridge turn left into Halton road. Club is about half mile on your left. Hopefully there will be a strong turnout from the Widnes tourism office, maybe selling a few Osram light bulb demo,s or Widnes waffles or even stuff that makes you waffle :ohmy: ill be a bit late got another 50th to go to 1st but wont involve round trips to Stoke and back beforehand :lol:

Directions from M56. Exit junction 12 . 2nd exit off roundabout straight through lights following signs for Runcorn, follow A557 Weston express way until dual carriage way splits after about two mile, stay in right hand lane, go through two sets of lights then after about 50 yards take exit left at junc turn right then first right into Halton road. Club is about half a mile on your left. Simples.

A big thanks to Steve for his daily roadworks reports, sterling work, let's hope none of the Runcorn hoodies switch any of the diversion signs around ( soul night in a cul-de sac anyone?).

A full update of this weeks events leading up to Grumpy's to follow once the concussion has worn off and the butterfly stitches have disolved  yep had a bit of a domestic accident, fell over the cat and split my head open on a cupboard door ! (I can see and hear Mr Cunliffe punching the air and shouting "I told you so" at the top of his voice he's claimed I've had a hole in my head for years !!!!!) Louise would like you all to know that no damage has been down to the cupboard door and the cat is unharmed :yes: It's a good job she's a tri-colour cat because if she'd have been  one of those lucky black ones I would asked for my money back !!!:lol:

Dave the one still smelling of TCP !
